Managing Litigation Risks: Navigating the Perilous “Bookends” of Civil Discovery

Watch On-demand

No matter how buttoned up you are, your company will get into civil litigation. And certain phases of the discovery process present a high degree of risk to you and your business partners. Infrequent litigators often get tripped up: 

  • When navigating their duty to preserve potentially relevant evidence.
  • Seeking to shield privileged and other protected documents from disclosure. 
High profile cases have put a spotlight on these issues – with the loss of January 6th text messages highlighting preservation issues, and the Alex Jones trial highlighting the implications of producing privileged communications. 

Even if you expect outside counsel will handle the bulk of any litigation work, your legal department will be deeply involved with the preservation and document production processes. It is vital that in-house counsel are aware of potential stumbling blocks to make sure these critical tasks are approached with the necessary care.

Please join us for this one-hour webinar, in which Practical Law senior legal editor (and former litigation partner at Spilman Thomas and Battle) Kelly Griffith will outline what in-house counsel need to know about managing civil discovery today.
