Insight into where e-discovery, information governance cybersecurity, and digital transformation are heading – who is doing what now or in the future, what works and what doesn’t, and what people wish they could do but can’t – gleaned from recent publications
ABOVE THE FOLD

New Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 16.1 – Brian T. Rafferty and Brandon C. Mumby of Polsinelli reported that on Dec. 1 the new Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 16.1 went into effect.

2019 Litigation Trends Survey – Norton Rose Fulbright has published its 15th annual Litigation Trends Survey. Their top-level summary: “The 15th annual Litigation Trends Survey has identified two major trends that began impacting the industry more intensively in 2019 and are predicted to accelerate in 2020. More organizations than ever before anticipate dispute volume to rise in the year ahead, and they are putting in place preventative measures in order to manage the increased risk. Despite the increase in proactive risk mitigation, the findings show that companies are still underutilizing one of the most effective measures available – embedding lawyers in business operations.” Unlike in many years past, however, this year’s report makes no mention of e-discovery.
