Question for Litigation Associates

Postby MoonDreamer » Mon Jul 22, 2013 7:09 pm

What is your practice, firm size, and orientation (defense/plaintiff) AND,

How early in your careers did you first do the following:

draft discovery
discuss case issues with clients
negotiate with opposing counsel
Attend hearings solo
Defend a deposition
Take a deposition
Second chair during a trial
First chair during trial

Any other stepping stones?

Another, I think (at least for patent lit), is just going to a trial. I've been lucky enough to go three times in my first few years (first time was 1st year).

depends on which court you practice. I would assume s/he does ITC work, which takes only 10 months from filing of the complaint to your last reply brief after trial.
