    You just opened the mail to find a notice that a former (and angry) employee has filed a lawsuit against you and your organization. Now you must respond to the deadlines imposed by a complex legal system.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

    Attorneys from Warner Norcross + Judd will conduct a mock trial experience to demonstrate the formal dispute resolution process used by state and federal courts. Mock depositions, trial examinations and closing arguments will be presented, along with best practices to protect you and your organization from employment claims.
