Nigel A. Greene
spoke at a CLE event sponsored by the Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia on February 20, 2020. The seminar, “Nuts-and-Bolts: Taking/Defending Depositions and Investigatory Witness Interviews,”
was held at Greenberg Traurig LLP in Philadelphia. The Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia has served the black legal profession and black community of Philadelphia for nearly 70 years by promoting and fostering professional and practice development and excellence, economic and political empowerment, charitable community service, and justice and equal opportunity.
Nigel and other panelists illustrated the importance of depositions and how they can often win or lose a case. The panelists outlined techniques to draw out relevant information when questioning an individual in a deposition. In addition, panelists discussed tools for securing credible and reliable insights and recollections in investigatory witness interviews. They showed how well-organized corporate internal investigation interviews can help a corporation protect itself in civil cases and also in potential criminal investigations arising out of the same alleged conduct that can generate a civil case.
