If you say the word “discovery” to a litigator, the reaction may not be kind. Discovery-the exchange of relevant information- usually in the form of documents or oral depositions, takes up the majority of a litigator’s time and costs clients the most money.
This webinar begins with a summary of the rules governing discovery. In particular, we discuss newer federal rules governing the preservation and discovery of electronic data and information, and the concept of “proportionality” in discovery. We also discuss the practicalities of discovery: budgeting, tactics, and common opportunities and pitfalls. This hour demystifies a mystifying process, and provides listeners with what they need to know to not get tripped up in litigation. At the very least, you will understand why the acronym “ESI” causes our panel to wince.
