Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(f) requires parties to Meet and Confer in order to negotiate the terms of eDiscovery: what data will be disclosed, what format will be used when discoverable materials are produced to the other side, what the time lines are and other issues that go to the very heart of discovery.
The "Meet and Confer" is an important event early on in litigation, but is one for which many attorneys are often not prepared. Many attorneys struggle to meet both the requirements of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the expectations of judges. While the Meet and Confer continues to be a challenge for many attorneys, it doesn't have to be that way!
Women in eDiscovery invites you to join us for a lively, focused CLE presentation by two experts in this area--Debbie Reynolds and Jeff Salling. Their team presentation will be chock full of practical tips to put you on the road to a more successful Meet and Confer. Don’t miss this chance to be better prepared and help lower risks and costs for your clients as well as improve litigation work flow from the start to the finish of litigation.
