How to Survive a Lawsuit
On November 4, 2015 Buckingham hosted the fourth Breakfast with Buckingham event of the year titled “How to Survive a Lawsuit: Understanding and Controlling Your Risks in Litigation.”
Partners, Michael Matasich, Greg Amend, and John Hill (Litigation Practice Group Chair) presented at the event. Matasich discussed three steps you should take once you’ve been sued or having a pending lawsuit (Step #1, call your attorney!). Amend delivered three tips for being an effective witness which includes knowing your role in a trial and staying in control of the situation and the information you divulge. Hill helped the audience understand the risks and values of alternative fee arrangements (including flat fees, success-based fees, and per capita fees) and when to use them.
