We will identify the primary project witnesses, facts and data; how to draft effective interrogatories and
document requests with a focus on key events and milestones during projects; constructing a meaningful

the dispute is in arbitration or courts of law.
The advent of digital record keeping has dramatically increased the burden of discovery in litigation. Parties
to disputes and their counsel need to evaluate the scope of discovery early in a dispute and to create a
discovery budget and plan for success. The presenter has drawn upon decades of investigation experiences<
to apply his best evaluative practices to the rapidly changing digital age.

methods available in conveying this message to a jury. The program will highlight several
testing and visualization case examples with practical application to litigation scenarios.
