Managing Opposing Counsel

1 hour MCLE Credit

 

How you deal with opposing counsel builds your reputation with your peers, judicial officers, and clients. In your dealings with opposing counsel, it must appear to your client that you have the upper hand, or are at least evenly matched, and to your judicial officer it must appear that you have a good professional working relationship, no matter how the other attorney behaves toward you behind closed doors. You will inevitably come across attorney bullies and attorneys who will do any and everything to prevent a case from moving forward. This program will give you tips on what you can do to try to establish a good working relationship with opposing counsel, how to maintain composure when opposing attorneys refuse to play nice, and how to build your reputation as an attorney who is both competent and easy to work with.

Program Highlights:

  • Setting the tone for the relationship
  • Setting boundaries and limits
  • Managing your reactions
  • Monitoring your reputation
  • What the State Bar has to say about professionalism

This program is appropriate for all levels.
