Effective Approaches to Writing for Damages Reports and Litigation Matters

In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn effective approaches to writing an expert damages report for use in a litigation matter. The workshop will include a review of the report writing requirements set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and reporting requirements for other jurisdictions.
