AZA Will Answer the Question

In “How Litigators Evade the Question of Trial Experience,” deputy general counsel Mark Herrmann explains how important it is for in-house counsel to retain trial lawyers, not litigators who haven’t been before juries. He notes how many lawyers don’t even like being asked about it.

But in-house folks are correct to look for trial experience in their trial lawyers. First, trial experience matters…. Second, we ask questions about trial experience as a matter of self-defense. …You can’t blame me for asking. And I suppose I can’t blame you for evading the question.” Read more
