Early Case Assessment and Settlement Strategies for In-House Counsel


On March 13, 2012, David Governo spoke at a Corporate Counsel Webinar sponsored by LexisNexis and attended by 400 participants. The webinar topics included strategies for cost analysis and valuation, educating management, and determining whether to settle or whether to litigate.

From the LexisNexis website: "During a complimentary Webinar, sponsored by LexisNexis and entitled 'Early Case Assessment and Settlement Strategies for In-House Counsel,' an esteemed panel of litigators and GCs discussed their methods for effective case assessment. The panel consisted of: David M. Governo of the Governo Law Firm; Bridget M. Ahmann, a partner at Faegre Baker Daniels; Jeffry Koenig, chief litigation counsel, safety, health and environmental counsel and compliance officer at Cytec Industries Inc.; Brenda Cleveland, senior litigation paralegal in the legal department at Cardinal Health; and David Orensten, assistant general counsel of litigation at Cardinal Health."

Building on the presentation, we contributed to an Early Case Assessment Resource Checklist that LexisNexis recently published. Click here for a copy. In the next several months LexisNexis will be publishing an article by David Governo and David Goldman (a partner at Governo Law Firm) on a related topic: "Preserving Social Media Data When Litigation Is Expected." Please let us know if you have any questions or if we can be of assistance to you or your colleagues defending claims.
