CaseCentral's Corporate and Law Firm editions made more FRCP effective
With the change in Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) that took effect on December 1st, on-demand discovery lifecycle management platforms CaseCentral stated that their internal IT processes must be adapted to keep up with the modification. The new FRCP rules require all companies to clearly define their information technology processes to opposing counsel and articulate the process far earlier in a legal action — at the first meet-and-confer meeting. The Corporate and Law Firm editions of CaseCentral protect and maintain data integrity, better organize information assets, and reduce overall risk and cost. CaseCentral's solutions help clients with a systematic storage and can create a single, complete copy of all data. Apart from eliminating duplication of records, it also establishes a consistent corporate-wide production format that enables companies to reject the opposing counsel's requests for alternative production formats, thereby effectively cutting costs and risk.
