Maintain Docket / Calendar Control

  • Handle litigation deadlines, dates and events through a central control system.
  • Record dates and events, and update your calendar control system on a regular basis. Dates that should be entered routinely include litigation dates, important dates to your firm's business clients, and filing and hearing dates.
  • Provide adequate "ticklers" to ensure proper lead time for docket control system entry.
  • Implement a system that exceeds your current case level to ensure that it will accommodate your future needs.
  • Establish a backup system that is maintained by multiple staff and is cross-checked on a daily or weekly basis.
  • Implement a system under which you can run periodic checks to confirm that work was completed.
