Ethics and Discovery
Edward Harold

There is no doubt discovery has become more burdensome over the past 25 years as email and other electronic message systems became the communication method of choice for business. The volume of information even in relatively simple cases can be overwhelming. What many attorneys may not realize is that electronic information raises a host of ethical issues that need to be kept in mind when responding to discovery. This session will discuss those issues and how to avoid the mistakes that could result in unknowing violations of the ethical rules.
