Your question is a very broad one with respect to the deposition you are slated to attend. If your empoyer has been named in the lawsuit and you have had your deposition noticed for it, I would contact your employer's attorney with respect to the scope of representation that he or she may give you at the upcoming proceeding. If you are worried that you may be named in the lawsuit, you should have a lawyer representing you at your deposition.

If you have been sued in a lawsuit and your deposition is coming up, it is very important in my opinion that you have legal representation at the deposition.
