Maintaining the Right Balance: Proportionality and Electronic Discovery

Product ID: CA3073D
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

A journey to more efficient, economical discovery

The duty to preserve evidence requires a party to safeguard potentially relevant information in the face of reasonably foreseeable litigation. In many cases, the failure to comply with this obligation opens up both counsel and client to potential sanctions that can change the dynamics of litigation.

Maintaining the Right Balance: Proportionality and Electronic Discovery , will show you how to meet your ethical obligation to take affirmative efforts to preserve potentially relevant ESI and to utilize the doctrine of proportionality to drive this process, even at the earliest stages of litigation.
