The world has changed and so is litigation. Litigation in the digital age is completely different from what it used to be decades ago. With the use of the Internet and cloud-based services, lawyers are now able to practice from almost anywhere in the world. With litigation streamlined via e-storage, e-Filings, e-Service & eDiscovery, the traditional approach to discovery of document in legal proceedings by way of peering into cabinets and boxes of documents is now history. With the growth of the digital age, virtually all documents are created digitally. Information that historically would have been kept in “hard copy” in a filing cabinet now originates and largely remains in electronic format, perhaps never reduced to paper. Learn More
