best practices

Outten & Golden’s attorneys and litigation support personnel work with counsel to assess e-discovery preparedness and to propose and implement e-discovery best practices.

In today’s electronic age, e-discovery has become an important component of employment litigation and, consequently, general firm management.  Law firms must be aware of and comply with e-discovery obligations, which arise as early as the first day of contact with a potential client. Consequences for failing to comply fully with e-discovery requirements include sanctions for clients and their counsel.  As a result, attorneys and firms representing employees in litigation must assess whether their internal case-management protocols and litigation practices comply with e-discovery responsibilities.
