Tuesday Tips : 5 qualities in an opponent

5 qualities lawyers say they like in an opponent:

1. That they have read the case papers

2. They are courteous- rudeness never made anyone’s case stronger

3. The ability to keep a professional distance from their client’s case

4. The skill to be able to identify and engage with the key issues in the case – waffling about unimportant peripheral matters never fooled anyone that you have a strong case

5. Being respectful of your time as well as their own
