The package of changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure presents a powerful opportunity to cut litigation discovery costs, risks and burdens – particularly for skilled legal advocates and businesses that are prepared. And, although the changes are not expected to take effect until December 1, 2015, some courts are already looking to them as the benchmark for discovery best practices.
Watch E-Discovery Advocacy and Management team leader Karin S. Jenson discuss the expected practical impact of the changes and how we are working with our attorneys, clients, and contacts to get ready.
To help companies prepare, BakerHostetler’s E-Discovery Advocacy and Management team is offering in-house or webcast clinics to fully brief legal, business, and IT teams on the intricacies and practical application of the changes. We customize the clinics to cover anything from just the basics – packaged by subject matter, such as how the changes collectively will affect a company’s duty to preserve evidence – to a more in-depth analysis of the disputes we anticipate under the new rules.
