An effective litigation story follows the same literary rules as any compelling story, with two notable differences. Like other stories, a litigation story has characters, setting, plot and conflict, and resolution. The critical differences between an ordinary story and a litigation story, is that the litigator’s story must be based on actual admissible evidence, and must be legally sound and persuasive. The objective of this article, the third in this four-part series, is to discuss how in-house and outside counsel can draft an effective litigation story.
