Since the Federal Rule amendments in 2015 re-emphasized proportionality as a significant principle in relation to discovery, organizations have struggled to operationalize the discovery process in a proportional and defensible manner. What are the benefits of “right-sizing” discovery? What can be leveraged from the rules and relevant case law? What best practices can be deployed for quick evaluation of potentially relevant custodians and data sources and associated eDiscovery costs? For the past 16 months, a group of 56 practitioners, experts, and judges have worked tirelessly to address these issues. The result is the recently introduced “Discovery Proportionality Model: A New Framework.” Join us for a conversational webinar that combines insights from committee members with practical recommendations for implementing these new guidelines into your practice:

  • Case law and the value of proportionality
  • When and how to start discovery scoping
  • Practical means to improve eDiscovery cost management
