I recently recorded a podcast with Rachel Teisch of Xerox Litigation Services whose purpose was to describe briefly the recent changes to the UK Civil Procedure Rules as they relate to case management and eDisclosure.
The aim was to give law departments, both within corporates and at external law firms, a summary of what to expect and how they might prepare for the new regime. There is a summary here of what we said, together with a link to the podcast itself. The focus is on anticipating the scope, the possible methods and the expense of giving eDisclosure and on the options which face legal departments and external litigation teams. These include broad choices such as that between keeping work in house or sharing the weight with third party experts.
Whilst writing about Xerox, I draw attention to their new LinkedIn group called E-Discovery Talk by Xerox which invites you to share thoughts and expertise on timely topics and trends and to participate in the dialogue.
