  • Treatment of litigation streamlining, technology, and management by both law firms and corporations.
  • Extensive coverage of discovery procedures and strategy, including such topics as depositions, document requests, discovery of ESI, interrogatories, and requests for admission.

  • Procedural and practice checklists, and checklists of allegations, defenses, and sources of proof that help you plan discovery and evaluate your case.
  • Hundreds of pages of essential litigation forms and jury charges that facilitate document drafting and help you effectively manage a wide variety of cases.
