Early Case Assessments in Employment Disputes: Minimizing Risks, Controlling Costs, and Efficiently Resolving Claims
Frank C. Morris, Jr., Member of the Firm, will co-present "Early Case Assessments in Employment Disputes: Minimizing Risks, Controlling Costs, and Efficiently Resolving Claims," a webinar hosted by Strafford Publications.
The use of early case assessments (ECAs), in the context of employment-related disputes, minimizes costs, mitigates risks, and hastens resolution. ECAs provide the parties and their counsel with an opportunity to identify key issues, establish the client’s interests and perspectives, and anticipate the other side’s counterarguments and concerns. This panel will outline drafting tips and provide guidance to employment counsel for conducting ECAs as part of the dispute resolution process.
Discussion topics will include:
- How using an ECA promotes evidence based decisions on whether and when to settle or litigate.
- What cost categories can an ECA be used to identify, and can an ECA be used to reduce anticipated costs?
- How does an ECA intersect with e-discovery tools and other pre-litigation or pre-arbitration practices?
