Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Update: Understand New Rules, Standards, and Disclosure Requirements

Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Update: Understand New Rules, Standards, and Disclosure Requirements

Understand the changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and best practices to apply these changes in future litigation. The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were significantly amended on December 1, 2015. These amendments were designed to expedite substantive resolution of issues and curtail expansive, disproportionate discovery, with the ultimate goal being to focus courts and litigants on the specific claims and defenses at issue. This topic will provide an overview of the major changes, evaluate how courts are reacting to those changes and provide some best practices or approaches to arguing proportionality, responding to document requests and dealing with spoliation. Failing to understand the new rules or take a best practices approach to some of the changes can lead to extreme inefficacies and tremendous cost. By taking full advantage of the changes will likely lead to smoother and cheaper litigation.
