The second edition of Electronic Discovery Deskbook enables you to meet the legal, procedural, and technical challenges of e-discovery while cutting its costs and risks. The Deskbook helps you to develop information and litigation management policies and procedures that guide you to identify, preserve, collect, prepare, and produce discoverable, electronically-stored information (ESI) in cost-effective, legally defensible ways.

Written by some of today’s leading e-discovery practitioners, Electronic Discovery Deskbook offers you a bounty of useful tips, from how to deal with near-identical files when collecting ESI, to when it’s safe to lift litigation holds in connection with government investigations or actions. It warns you about potential perils, including the hazards inherent in “clawback” agreements. It also alerts you to vital trends, focusing on new technologies, new compliance demands, and new legal vulnerabilities for counsel.
