What is Discovery, and Why is It Important?
Discovery is a pre-trial phase in which the Parties to the case obtain and disclose the evidence, material and expert testimony of each side of a case according to the civil procedure's set rules and regulations. The pre-trial discovery phase is an essential aspect of almost every legal case, because it allows each party to obtain and disclose evidence of a case so that lawyers can come up with the best arguments and strategies for the case. Depending on the evidence or information uncovered during the discovery process, a party may choose to negotiate a settlement rather than proceed to trial.
Why Hire a Legal Consultant for Discovery Management services?
Managing interrogatories, requests for production of documents, admissions and deposition testimony can be a complicated and time-consuming process. The entire concept of the discovery process is that both parties should share all the evidence and information they have. However, a party might be unwilling to share complete data, especially if there is a loophole in the law that allows them to withhold important details. Such situations can be avoided if you have a legal consultant and efficient legal drafting service by your side. These professionals will know the specific laws of your jurisdiction and will save you time by mining extensive data collections, and identifying relevant data on your behalf. A legal consultant can also assist with the discovery management process by leveraging their skills and technology to process and review any data requests or productions in the most cost-effective and transparent way.
