Mayer Brown's Commercial Litigation group is pleased to announce the second edition of our booklet Managing the Early Stages of Commercial Litigation in the US: Critical First Steps. For in-house lawyers who do not often handle litigation yet find themselves charged with managing a lawsuit, we cover issues that can arise during the early stages of a lawsuit, identify the important elements to consider and discuss strategy. The booklet also includes a task checklist that even those with extensive experience in civil litigation will find helpful.

We are happy to provide a complimentary digital copy of the booklet to our clients and friends. If you are interested in receiving a copy, please submit your request below. We hope you find the booklet useful and welcome your feedback.
