Federal Rule Changes Affect e-Discovery - Are You Ready This Time?

December 2015

Watch Recording (CLE Credit Available)

Important updates and revisions to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure took effect on December 1, 2015. These changes have a substantial effect on litigation (and pre-litigation) strategies and practice, particularly with regard to discovery. Issues addressed by the amendments include -- among others -- the scope of discovery, responses and objections to requests for production, and preservation (or loss) of electronically stored information.

This event includes a lively and informative strategic discussion of the amendments, the ways they will affect your practice and cases, and the steps you can take to address and embrace the new paradigms shaped by these changes. In-house counsel join members of the K&L Gates global e-Discovery Analysis & Technology practice group to address the significance of these rule changes, their ethical implications for legal practitioners, the opportunities for advocacy afforded by the rules’ increased attention to proportionality, and the practical effects of these rule changes on record preservation practices.
