About the Book
Discovery is critical to achieving litigation success. Since construction disputes are likely never to be tried to verdict, the pretrial activity will most often be the only activity, and the lawyer who masters it best may have an advantage when the settlement is negotiated. On the other hand, when the case has to be tried, construction cases are notoriously complex and difficult to manage, and only the advocate who has adopted a good discovery plan, and carried it out systematically and efficiently, is likely to be able to present his or her case to the court in a truly engaging and effective manner.
Discovery Deskbook for Construction Disputes outlines the discovery process from its inception, even prior to formal litigation, through the planning and conduct of discovery through the classic means of document production, interrogatories and depositions with emphasis on the growing need for skill in electronic discovery; moreover, alerts the reader to the confusing but important subjects of discovery objections, discovery sanctions, and international discovery.
