eDiscovery: Rise of the Machines

Instructor: David L. Applegate

The cost of civil litigation and the ability to conduct any cost-benefit analysis is inextricably intertwined with the cost of discovery: production and protection of sensitive company documents; written interrogatories concerning company policies and personnel; and, finally, depositions under oath of company officials and representatives.
