Plaintiffs’ lawyers historically have lingered too far behind the Defense bar when it comes to strategic, manageable and cost effective discovery. The new discovery rule regime requires knowledge, skill and fortitude.
Our goal is to help you level the playing field by sharing some of our experiences negotiating reasonable, equitable discovery with opposing parties and effectively and efficiently managing data received in discovery to ensure you access the best data to prepare for depositions, summary judgment and trial.
· Why preservation and how you preserve and memorialize your efforts is critical
· Why search terms should NEVER be unilaterally selected by your opponent,
nor necessarily the exclusive option to reduce data
· Why hiring expertise will save you a ton of money in the long run and
likely help you to succeed on a faster track
· Why Predictive coding or TAR should be a go-to solution for plaintiffs
· Why you should not be duped by “know it all” defense counsel and their IT experts –
they often don’t know what we know
