Litigation is an unavoidable consequence of doing business. Most of the work begins many months or even years before the parties go to court. These days, attorneys must invest heavily in strategic pre-trial discovery to prevail in court. Attorneys must understand the many emerging trends and issues in the field of Strategic E-Discovery in order not to fall victim to its many pitfalls.
The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to provide guidance to organizations and legal professionals that will be primarily affected by litigation and issues surrounding Strategic E-Discovery. The panel will present their findings, which include “Best Practices” in a two-hour Live webinar.
