Overview

For better or worse, litigation is a fact of life for corporate entities, both private and public. Litigation can have high stakes, both monetary and reputational, and can encompass enormous volumes of relevant materials in the form of documents and general practices in a party’s possession, custody, or control. The scope of these materials must be understood and managed from the filing of a complaint or an inquiry prior to the beginning of litigation through review of information and various means of discovery. This Briefing will provide an overview of how complex litigation might be approached and what attorneys and parties should expect “along the way.”

Topics to be addressed include:

  • What is complex litigation and what issues might it present (10 minutes)
  • How a “game plan” for preservation of discoverable information is created (10 minutes)
  • The importance of the Rule 26(f) meeting and the 16(f) scheduling order and what topics should be considered (15 minutes)
  • How fact and expert discovery can be conducted (15 minutes)
  • The need for “pause points” in connection with resolution or other considerations (10 minutes)
