Time Management, Client Management, File Management
This paper deals with managing a litigation practice. It is divided into two sections: the first discusses the critical skills necessary to be a good litigator; the second contains a collection of precedents that may be of particular assistance to young litigators. It includes a discussion of 3 critical skills: client management, file management, and time management. As well, styles of litigation practice and the Code of Conduct are also considered.
In addition, this paper contains 31 valuable precedents, including a file opening questionnaire, retainer letter, various letters to different agencies and entities (particularly related to an insurance or personal injury practice), client reporting letters, a statement of receipts and disbursements, a general will, personal directive, and enduring power of attorney.
