DRI For the Defense

June 20, 2022

Authors: E. Stratton Horres Jr., Karen L. Bashor

Stratton Horres (Senior Counsel-Dallas) and Karen L. Bashor (Partner-Las Vegas) co-authored “The Defense Counsel’s Playbook,” the second of a two-part series, for the June 2022 edition of DRI’s For the Defense.

Specifically, Stratton and Karen discuss the importance of a nontraditional approach and provide examples such as preservation of all correspondences right away, scanning social media for critical information and having appellate counsel attend trial to mitigate risks. They stress: “One of the key elements of the playbook … is to respond to change and be ready for anything.”
