29 January 2013
Mayer Brown Newsletter

Happy New Year from the Mayer Brown Electronic Discovery & Records Management Practice. We hope you found our Tips of the Month to be a valuable resource in 2012. To begin the new year, we are pleased to present a compilation of the year’s tips for easy reference.

Accompanying this compilation is a summary of the key court decisions and emerging trends that were at the forefront of e-discovery in 2012. Key issues included the increasing recognition of the cross-disciplinary nature of e-discovery, a continued emphasis on cooperation, revisions to the discovery rules impacting electronically stored information, the discoverability of social media, the obligations of the US government when it comes to e-discovery, and prevailing parties seeking to recover e-discovery costs.
