Jenner & Block Partner Steven R. Trybus and Associate Michael G. Babbitt published an article titled, “Practical Considerations for Subpoenas Directed at Counsel,” in the August 13 issue of the ABA Section of Litigation’s Trial Practice newsletter. The article addresses the precarious task of serving a subpoena to a fellow member of the bar. The authors advise litigators to think strategically and follow formalities with subpoena requests, carefully consider privilege and work with opposing counsel on objections, and be timely with all motions. Following these practical considerations, the authors conclude, will help reduce costs and save time for clients when dealing with this common, but tricky, area of litigation.
