  • Strategic Overviews--provide important background on how the particular proceeding or motion fits into the overall goal of the litigation; highlight key considerations that the practitioner should keep in mind regarding the subject of that chapter
  • Checklists--ensure that no important considerations, requirements or procedural steps for each aspect of the litigation are overlooked; cross-referenced to the text (for further discussion) and to the applicable forms
  • Forms--save hours of document drafting time by providing a handy starting point for creating litigation documents; each form is tailored to the format and content requirements of the district courts in New York and Connecticut, and is accompanied by explanatory comments, cross referenced to discussion in the text, and citations to the relevant Federal and local procedural rules
