Overview (Program Summary)
What now? You did your best job trying to avoid litigation. But unfortunately, litigation ensued. You figured that you could settle the case, but the mediation was a disaster. Now, the matter is tracking toward trial and the lawyer handling your matter has little trial experience. There is no reason to panic. Join ACC Georgia and Willenken LLP attorneys Paul J. Loh and Jason H. Wilson for “Top Ten Insider Secrets That All In-House Counsel Need to Know To Manage A Case That Could Go To Trial”. In this CLE presentation, you will learn ten insider secrets of trial preparation and trial that will help you manage a case bound for trial or a case in trial. These same secrets will also increase your chances of a last-minute settlement and help you select the right counsel at the outset for matters that you believe have a higher likelihood of going to trial.
Paul Loh represents Fortune 500 and other major corporations in high-stakes disputes involving complex commercial litigation, product liability and major torts, white collar defense and government investigations, and class actions. He has tried over 120 jury trials, court trials, and arbitrations. As a result of his substantial trial experience, major companies turn to Paul to prosecute or defend some of the most challenging cases on their dockets, and they have engaged him just months or weeks before trial to take over as lead trial counsel. Recognized as a “Top Rated Lawyer” by The American Lawyer and a “Local Litigation Star” by Benchmark Litigation, Paul has spent nearly 30 years honing his craft in civil and criminal litigation and trials. A founding member of the firm, Paul currently serves as Willenken’s managing partner. Paul earned his J.D. from Harvard Law School and his B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley.
Jason Wilson is a litigation and trial partner whose experience is a rare blend of extensive trial experience, coupled with years of appellate work. Jason represents Fortune 500 companies in a wide variety of industries, including hospitality, utility, retail, and energy. Over the course of his career, he has taken more than fifteen civil matters to trial. Jason is in his element when navigating complex litigation challenges and his recent career highlights demonstrate his versatility. On behalf of the fifth largest pharmaceutical company in the world, he conducted a blistering cross-examination of one of the defendant’s (also a large pharmaceutical company) officer, in Delaware Chancery Court. Jason’s client won the liability phase of this proceeding. In late 2020, Jason also argued a critical issue regarding independent contracting before the California Supreme Court. Jason has been named a “Local Litigation Star” by Benchmark Litigation for six consecutive years. He earned his J.D. from Harvard Law School and his B.A. from Pomona College.
