The landscape has changed. The fall-out from Mitchell v NGN means that almost any procedural defect could result in severe sanctions. Yet few in house legal teams have the skills, the time and the resources to know how to determine scope and pre-estimate costs, particularly so early in a case.
How much evidence do you need to collect, what is the best way of doing it, and how do you keep the costs within reasonable bounds whilst doing a good job? If you do not know your disclosure obligations under this tough new regime - then you are putting your company at risk.

The Commercial Litigation Association of Ireland launches a Good Practice Discovery Guide
As will be clear from other references on this site, I am interested in developments in discovery practice in any jurisdiction for which eDiscovery is required by the rules of local civil procedure.
