ABOUT THIS ISSUE (150 - Fall 2016 - Post-Trial) 

The trial is over. All done, right? Wrong. If you think you’re done, chances are you will be underprepared for what happens, or should happen, next. But, if you’ve anticipated correctly, you’ll already be evaluating – or preparing a response to – an appeal and everything that comes with that process. There might be further negotiations. There will be the matters of collection and interest. The post-trial period is also an opportunity to assess what you’ve learned and allows you a chance to mull over what you might do differently if a similar case becomes a future file. This edition of the Verdict is themed on Post-Trial. It is a very worthy topic, as it can easily be a large overlooked aspect to your overall case. Pre-trial activities, as with resolutions and conclusions, are the natural marks on any case’s timeline, but what happens next can be equally significant,  and sometimes even more important, to your client’s future.
