Now Available: Webinar on Emerging Discovery Trends

Trends like (some) courts’ embrace of inherent authority for spoliation sanctions, in order to “fill the cracks” created by recent amendments to the federal rules, or the spread of discovery to more and more practice areas and more and more types of law firms, as electronic evidence becomes increasingly important in all varieties of litigation.
