This panel, composed of industry experts, discussed the strategies developed by both requesting and responding parties in the six months since the federal rules of eDiscovery were amended. The importance of the newly emphasized concept of proportionality in the federal rules as well as the recently defined scope of discoverability of electronic information were discussed as well.

Brandon Daniels was joined on the panel by:

The panel provided timely insight and synced perfectly with Clutch’s recent FCA-alumni hires. EDI appreciates Clutch’s participation in our programs and we look forward to their upcoming session at EDI Summit in October.”
