Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will prepare personal injury attorneys to depose corporate representatives in accordance with Rule 30(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The webinar will discuss best practices for meeting the 30(b)(6) notice requirements, effectively questioning the corporate representative, dealing with difficult representatives, and raising and defending objections.

- Logistics: who, how many, where, when, how long

- Duties of the responding party
- Binding effect of testimony
- Scope of inquiry
The speaker will review these and other key issues:

- What tactics are effective when questioning the corporate representative and raising and defending objections during the deposition?
