Jim Morsch to Speak on Persuasive Brief-Writing

CHICAGO, September 7, 2016 – Butler Rubin partner James Morsch has been invited to participate in a two-part webinar series, Persuasive Brief-Writing 2016, sponsored by Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter designed to introduce attorneys and business owners to the basics of brief-writing. The first episode of the series, Structure and Organization, airs on September 21st at 11am CST.

Unclear and unpersuasive legal writing often comes from undeveloped analysis and undisciplined organization. This webinar explores best practices for structuring and organizing briefs, including how to most effectively frame arguments, use authority and find a winning theme. It also takes a fresh look at an old law school war horse: I(ssue) R(ule) A(nalysis) C(onclusion) – one of the few rules in life from which there is virtually never cause to deviate.

Formed in 1980, Chicago-based Butler Rubin assists clients nationally and internationally in complex business disputes, including antitrust law, class actions, defense of corporate directors and officers, labor and employment law, reinsurance, insurance, healthcare litigation, and insolvency.
