This webinar will explore the most effective ways to develop a discovery strategy for construction cases. We will identify the primary project witnesses, facts and data; how to draft effective interrogatories and document requests with a focus on key events and milestones during projects; constructing a meaningful Electronically Stored Information protocol for the exchange of email and other digital records; and concerns for preserving privileged communications. We will also compare discovery strategies depending on whether the dispute is in arbitration or courts of law.
The advent of digital recordkeeping has dramatically increased the burden of discovery in litigation. Parties to disputes and their counsel need to evaluate the scope of discovery early in a dispute and to create a discovery budget and plan for success. The presenters have drawn upon decades of investigation experiences to apply their best evaluative practices to the rapidly changing digital age.
