The most recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were a milestone in pleading and discovery practice. They changed the landscape of how the court and litigators should use the Rules to secure a “just, speedy, and inexpensive determination of every proceeding.” See Rule 1, Fed.R.Civ.P. 
You will be given insight from a variety of sources on how the new amendments will affect your practice. Be prepared to front-load your case because the time limits to accomplish certain tasks have been decreased and you must be prepared to meet and confer with your opponent to determine the scope and form of production. Cooperation under the Rules changes is a key component.
