Help your clients succeed in their business depositions
Through re-enactments and interviews with four experienced business lawyers, your clients will learn effective tips and common pitfalls to avoid during their deposition. This DVD has helped lawyers across the nation prepare thousands of executives, business owners, and managers for their business depositions.
Business owners are a special breed
Entrepreneurs and business owners are used to giving orders, not answering loaded questions. They’re often upset that their business dealings have gone to court — and now they have to face a deposition? They’ll wonder what to expect: Will they be grilled by the opponent’s attorney? How should they act?
Show them what to watch out for
Preparing for Your Business Deposition is geared exclusively for business people. The lawyers relate no-nonsense cautionary tales of real business owners who lost control in the deposition process. Key points are demonstrated by actors in realistic deposition settings.
