Maximizing your pool of potential witnessesVolume 2016-2017 - Issue 5 – Article

Mr. Stone concludes that, "any attempt to assert automatic and widespread representation of all current and former employees of a defendant must be met with skepticism. And, any efforts made to contact these individuals directly by a defense attorney for the purposes of shielding them from the informal discovery process should be challenged with a motion."
