Early case assessment & electronic disclosure

Recent case law underlines the need for solicitors to comply with Court deadlines which include disclosure and, where appropriate, budgeting requirements. In the case of Earles v Barclays Bank the judge said that it was “gross incompetence” for those practising in the civil courts to not know the rules on disclosure.

Much of disclosure nowadays is of electronic documentation which is stored on and retrieved from electronic databases; the documentation is to be sifted, sorted and reviewed by solicitors on electronic review platforms in a variety of ways including using computer assisted review techniques. It is essential that solicitors put in place a system which ensures that it is carried out properly and with care.

MBL’s new half day seminar will show you how to plan and budget for electronic disclosure, how to choose the appropriate disclosure “menu option” for your client, and how to project manage the disclosure process from inception through to inspection.
