Our firm understands the importance of managing discovery, especially in complex and high-profile cases. We realize that handling discovery correctly requires specialized attention and experience. Just like our trial lawyers who are nationally recognized in trying our clients’ cases before judges and juries, the lawyers who manage our client’s discovery are savvy to every facet of discovery, including preparing appropriate responses and collecting and producing relevant documents and electronic information.
Discovery disputes can be very costly to corporations in terms of legal fees, court sanctions and negative publicity. Our discovery attorneys have years of experience that helps us preserve our clients’ reputation, while keeping litigation costs down and minimizing negative press. Recently, our experience includes arguing the application of the “apex deposition rule” to both government and corporate officials, compelling plaintiff to first pursue discovery by less burdensome means before deposing high-ranking corporate officials.
We are knowledgeable with the rules and laws that govern discovery nationwide and have proven experience in creating databases, searching and archiving data for our clients. Our lawyers implement a proactive approach to discovery management that draws on the extensive information databases that we have created and on proven methodology garnered from experience. Our databases contain prior discovery responses, large collections of documents, discovery related motions and oppositions, related case law and court orders. We do not reinvent the wheel when preparing discovery responses both to ensure the consistency that is crucial and to be cost efficient. When discovery disputes cannot be avoided, we have earned our reputation as excellent discovery managers by taking on some of the most renowned plaintiffs’ lawyers throughout the country.
