Mike Gordon recently participated in a Strafford webinar, “Defending Rule 30(b)(6) Corporate Depositions: Responding to Deposition Notices, Selecting and Preparing Witnesses.” Due to overwhelming popularity,Strafford has scheduled an encore presentation for Tuesday, January 8, 1:00pm-2:30pm EST. Here’s a summary of the presentation:
The Rule 30(b)(6) corporate deposition can be a valuable tool, a non-event, or a severe problem. Preparation for and defense of a corporate deposition directly impacts the success of a case and potentially future cases. With a high potential for significant consequences caused by careless mistakes, counsel must know how to prepare for and defend a corporate deposition.
Rule 30(b)(6) depositions present complex challenges and serious legal risks for a company. Counsel must strategically determine who should represent the corporation at the deposition, how much preparation is adequate, and how to deal with privilege issues.
Our panel will prepare general counsel and outside counsel to effectively defend depositions of corporate representatives during litigation. The panel will discuss how to respond to a Rule 30(b)(6) deposition notice and how to select and prepare witnesses for the deposition.
We will review these and other high priority issues:
• How should corporate counsel respond to a Rule 30(b)(6) deposition notice that appears to be vague, overbroad or seeks privileged information?
• What are the particular dangers of designating a lawyer, or someone else with extensive privileged information, as a 30(b)(6) witness?
• To what extent must or should general counsel educate a witness in advance of a 30(b)(6) deposition?
