To Trial or Not to Trial: Changing Considerations and Strategies for Effective COVID-Era Dispute Resolution


Predictions are that 2021 will see a significant increase in litigation. With increased caseloads, in-house counsel must navigate the dispute landscape more adeptly than ever before, weighing the risks and likelihood of success in the various phases of a case and, ultimately, at trial.

In addition to the practical impacts the COVID-era has had on court functions and trial lawyers, these changes have altered the way companies value cases. Parties must consider whether remote trial, if offered, is in their best interest. They must also plan for increased costs associated with courtroom trials in COVID times. This webinar will look at the virtual pre-trial and trial experience from the perspective of a decision maker – and how common past experience and consideration of "taking a case to trial" may be forever changed.

Key takeaways will include:

  • Anticipated 2021 litigation trends
  • New discovery and internal investigation processes
  • Questions to ask when considering mediation or ADR
  • Key differences in the trial process and how those impact costs and case timeline
  • Questions to ask to determine case value
