Federal Rule Changes Affect e-Discovery - Are You Ready This Time? (Pittsburgh)

Learn Strategies for Litigating in the New Framework

3 December 2015   Pittsburgh   8:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.  

Important updates and revisions to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure take effect on December 1, 2015, absent (unlikely) action by Congress. These changes will undoubtedly have a substantial effect on litigation (and pre-litigation) strategies and practice, particularly with regard to discovery. Issues addressed by the amendments include -- among others -- the scope of discovery, responses and objections to requests for production, and preservation (or loss) of electronically stored information. 

This event will include a lively and informative strategic discussion of the amendments, the ways they will affect your future practice and cases, and the steps you can take to address and embrace the new paradigms shaped by these changes. In-house counsel will join members of the K&L Gates global e-Discovery Analysis & Technology practice group to address the significance of these rule changes, their ethical implications for legal practitioners, the opportunities for advocacy afforded by the rules’ increased attention to proportionality, and the practical effects of these rule changes on record preservation practices.

Schedule:
8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. Registration

This program will also be available via webinar. To participate,  and log-in instructions will be emailed to you the day before the program.
