Best Practices: Litigation Timelining

As the volume of discoverable data continues to grow, creating functional fact and issue timelines is more important than ever. During the early stages of litigation, timelines can help you develop eDiscovery strategies, identify collection sources, predict disputed facts and issues, and create a preliminary chronological relationship between case events. As your case progresses, timelines can assist you when preparing for depositions, motion practice, and conducting trial, as well. Associating key documents with timeline events allows you to track the truly critical evidence in your case.
