In the first four articles of this six-part series on third party discovery, we looked at how courts in various jurisdictions have defined “control” when deciding if a corporation must preserve and/or produce documents of a third party. Last time, we shifted gears a bit to discuss timing of third party discovery, specifically, whether it is possible to seek information from third parties before party discovery is complete. In this article, we provide some practice pointers on timing.
