Depositions are one of the most costly but crucial tasks in litigation. In a matter of hours, you have the limited opportunity to ask every question you’ve prepared for a particular witness and, hopefully, you will get the answers you’ve been looking for.
But just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an entire litigation team to prepare for and conduct an effective deposition. You know each member is crucial to the process and remains vital throughout the deposition. During the deposition, there can be one attorney asking questions, another attorney taking notes, an expert available to advise on a particular line of questioning and the paralegal who prepared the exhibits. Let’s not forget the associate back at the office that you call during break to see if they can find testimony that impeaches a statement that you think you heard the witness make – but aren’t entirely certain because you were moving onto another line of questioning as the statement was made.
