Data can be difficult and frustrating to manage, but that can be made much easier by following a 9-Step Fact Crashing Program that can turn any attorney into a data pro. Fact Crashing is a method used to dramatically reduce costs by acknowledging three things: (a) the expanding, investigative value of big data, (b) the diving cost of access, and (c) the inevitable choice of rational actors to accelerate those parts of pre-litigation that have the optimal combination of cost, sequencing and marginal impact.
In this practical webinar, you will examine the 9-Step Fact Crashing Program and evaluate best practices for approaching data-driven dispute resolutions. You will also discuss how to conduct cost-effective fact discovery early in pre-trial discovery or, eventually, in advance of pre-trial motions (pleading) practice.
Upon course completion, you will be able to:
- Identify the 9 principles of Fact Crashing
- Describe the 5 A’s and 5 C’s of data
- Create actionable data to drive dispute resolutions
- Apply Fact Crashing methods in the real world

What is a webinar?
A webinar is simply a seminar that you attend online. You either watch a live video feed of the speaker or listen to the speaker through your computer, tablet or phone’s audio. You see the speaker’s slides, videos, and other presentation materials on your screen.
Can I ask questions during the webinar?
Yes. During the live webinar, you may submit questions and comments and the speaker will respond verbally. For a recorded webinar, your questions will be emailed to the speaker. You will typically receive a response from the speaker within two business days.
Can I attend using a tablet or smartphone?
Yes. You may attend a webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone.
If I can’t attend a webinar live, can I view the recording later?
Yes. Shortly after each live program ends, we send all webinar registrants a link to the webinar recording. You can view the recording as many times as you like after the live webinar for up to 12 months.
What is an on-demand webinar?
An on-demand webinar is a previously recorded webinar that you may view at any time after your purchase for up to 12 months.
Can I stop a recorded webinar and start it later at the same point?
