Tad LeVan (JD cum laude, 1995) Teaches "Deposition Boot Camp" at Penn Law
(Philadelphia) –LeVan Law Group LLC founder and managing partner Peter H. “Tad” LeVan, Jr., recently created and taught an intensive 4-day workshop for law students at the University of Pennsylvania Law School entitled “Deposition Boot Camp: The Art of Taking, Defending and Preparing for Depositions.”
Held from January 5-8, the workshop offered instruction on deposition procedures, examination techniques, how to deal with difficult witnesses and obstreperous opposing counsel, and best practices in taking, defending and preparing a witness for deposition. The workshop also provided the students with an opportunity to conduct and defend a full-day mock deposition, with witnesses, volunteer legal professionals and leaders, and actual deposition service providers, such as court reporters and videographers.
LeVan is a seasoned trial and appellate attorney who has tried a number of high-stakes cases against national banks, Wall Street financial institutions and a Madoff investment firm, securing settlements on behalf of injured plan participants that have exceeded $700 million. Earlier this year, he launched the firm that bears his name under a unique business model, offering flat-fee and other predictable alternative fee structures in high-stakes litigation matters.
