Discovery Practice

  • July 28, 2022

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 episode begins with a summary of the rules governing discovery. In particular, we discuss the new federal rules governing the preservation and discovery of electronic data and information, and the new 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 to provide 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.
