Litigation is an unavoidable legal event. Each litigation event triggers certain activities, evolves through several phases and eventually reaches a resolution. A discrete event with a beginning, middle and end. Discovery has been treated as just one of the phases in those litigation events. Like the events themselves, an unpredictable, unavoidable phase repeated again and again with each new litigation event. Lather, rinse and repeat. Discovery however, need not be just another event-based activity.
This is Part 1 of a multi-part blog series that discusses how discovery may be approached as a repeatable business process rather than a series of individual crises to help you maximize your matters.
