Program Materials

This CLE webinar will guide construction litigators in managing complex discovery issues in construction claims, including electronic and paper document collection, review and production.

Description

Construction projects generate a significant number of documents, most of which will be requested during discovery when a construction claim arises. Technology has fundamentally changed the discovery obligations, processes and expenses for owners, contractors and design professionals.

Counsel must establish a discovery strategy early in the case to ensure obtaining all documents critical to developing the case. Counsel responding to discovery requests should develop an approach that meets e-discovery and other legal obligations, while controlling litigation expenses.

Listen as our authoritative panel of construction attorneys examines key discovery issues in construction claims. The panel will discuss best practices for handling electronic and paper documents during construction disputes, including meeting e-discovery requirements. The panel will also discuss strategies for implementing record-keeping practices that prepare parties to respond to discovery requests before they occur.
