Mock Arguments & Litigation Analysis
When the stakes are at their highest, litigators have increasingly sought an objective, outside perspective to provide valuable feedback on briefs, oral arguments and fine-tune upcoming arguments. Not surprisingly, companies regularly choose FedArb’s panel of seasoned former judges and neutrals to help lawyers gain maximum advantage in how they frame their legal arguments. Attorneys can select a jurist who sat on the same District or Circuit court and is familiar with the judges or the demographics of the forum, or someone who reflects the subject matter knowledge of the decision-maker. FedArb’s panelists can provide crucial guidance to help craft arguments that will have maximum effect upon the decision-maker.
In addition, while individual feedback is obviously valuable, observing how a panel of three jurists discuss the arguments provides three-dimensional, real-time feedback as to how to best craft or arguments.
These mock exercises are also valuable to generals counsel and provide executives the ability to better understand the strengths and weaknesses, other positions and whether it makes sense to engage in settlement or mediation.
