    Given the ever-rising volumes of data in today’s interconnected world, one of the most critical legal tasks in any mass tort litigation is electronic discovery.  Preserving, collecting, searching, producing and reviewing such large quanta of information can make or break a case.  The advent of the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure only add to the importance and complexity of electronic discovery to any case, especially those involving mass torts.  In this interactive panel discussion, you will hear directly from the experts on a panoply of electronic discovery issues, including:

    • Impact of new federal rules:  proportionality, cost-shifting, cost containment and sanctions
    • Cross-border and international discovery issues
    • The dos and don’ts of social media
    • Bring your own device pitfalls
    • The role of a special master and effective advocacy
    • The pros and cons of computer assisted and human review methods
    • How to recognize discovery gamesmanship and stop it cold
    • Choosing a vendor and appropriate due diligence
