Online Support During Discovery Phase of a Chemical Exposure Lawsuit


One of the largest chemical manufacturers in the United States found itself fighting a chemical exposure lawsuit. The stakes were high and over 200 witnesses with potentially relevant testimony needed to be deposed. Teams of attorneys were deployed to various sites and needed to stay in constant coordination with up-to-date exchanging of information.

  • Alderson provided online scheduling through our secure website available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition, transcripts, exhibits, and errata were available at Alderson Online for retrieval and electronic delivery. The online system provided the client with distinct benefits.
  • Attorney teams could see which witnesses had already been deposed, which witnesses were coming up, and who was responsible for their testimony without making a single phone call to co-counsel. Teams had immediate access to testimony because all drafts were posted at the end of each day.
  • The manufacturer saved significant money on paralegal overtime, paper copy charges for the transcripts and exhibits, and overnight courier fees to the different locations.
