How best to handle lawsuits brought against a company has stimulated from this blogger large amounts of commentary. Ideas about how best to hire a qualified and cost-effective litigation firm fall under my category, Outside Counsel Management (See my post of May 19, 2006: evaluation of litigation firms; Aug. 3, 2005: Baxter’s Litigation Advisory Board; May 1, 2006: litigation management trends; and May 4, 2005: insurance defense firms.).
In addition, 12 metaposts on this blog relate directly or substantially to litigation management. The ones most closely allied with litigation management include the 800-carat gorilla, e-discovery (See my post of July 26, 2008: internal discovery teams (See my post of May 3, 2008: internal discovery teams with 8 references.), expert witnesses (See my post of Feb. 2, 2008: expert witnesses with 9 references.), transitioning cases to a new firm after a competitive bid (See my post of Sept. 12, 2008: transfers of matters to new counsel with 8 references.), and conducting an early assessment of the case (See my post of Feb. 23, 2008: early case assessment with 8 references; June 10, 2008: firm hired solely for ECA.).
That is not all. Other litigation metaposts consider service providers for litigation-related tasks (See my post of Jan. 28, 2007: cottage industry, litigation with 8 references.), litigation hold orders (See my post of Aug. 27, 2008: litigation hold notices with 6 references.), and preventing lawsuits from starting (See my post of Aug. 27, 2005: model litigation audit checklist; June 20, 2008: bonuses by Tyco for prevention of suits; and arbitration or mediation (See my post of Jan. 16, 2008: arbitration with 14 references.).
Applicable to litigation management but not solely to it are several other topics I have collected, such as outside counsel guidelines (See my post of July 7, 2008: guidelines for outside counsel with 16 references.), software for tracking cases (See my post of Aug. 5, 2008: matter management systems with 35 references.), extranets (See my post of April 8, 2008: extranets with 13 references.), and study and learn from each lawsuit that you resolve (See my post of May 27, 2008: post mortems with 7 references.).
