The Discovery Advocate blog is presented by members of BakerHostetler’s E-Discovery Advocacy and Management Team and takes a practical look at modern discovery practice and the developments and trends that impact today’s litigants in the trenches of litigation. BakerHostetler is one of the world’s largest users and providers of discovery services in litigation and investigations. Our team was built on the understanding that modern discovery practice in complex litigation creates specialized advocacy opportunities in addition to litigation support challenges.
