Nearly all business-related documents today are electronically stored information (ESI) such as emails, Excel files or Word documents. As a result, ESI is often the evidence that plays a key role in how a commercical dispute is resolved, and impropoer handling of e-discovery can result in higher costs for defense and possibly an offensive case being decided on preservation and collection efforts rather than on a case’s merits.

The Q&A article, “Managing E-discovery in Commercial Disputes,” was published in the April-June 2016 issue of Corporate Disputes Magazine.
