RVM Addresses the Latest FRCP Amendments

RVM Enterprises, Inc. was selected to participate in Metropolitan Corporate Counsel’s (“MCC”) roundtable on the recent changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Prior to the amendments which took effect on December 1, 2016, the FRCP were notably amended in December 2006, and practical changes were made to discovery rules, introducing the management of electronic records, or eDiscovery.

These latest changes, which sprouted from a process spearheaded by leading judges, lawyers and academics, are aimed at making courts more accessible by monitoring escalating costs and delays driven by eDiscovery in litigation, and government investigations. The MCC’s roundtable gathered contributions from members of world’s leading law firms and eDiscovery experts. Salvatore Mancuso, Managing Director at RVM Enterprises, Inc., was selected to participate.

“The spirit of the changes to the FRCP in 2006 echoed a movement of acting early and often. The recent changes continue to reflect this idea,” said Mr. Mancuso. “The amended rules 4 and 16 seek to increase awareness of ESI issues, invite parties to get involved in the discussion of these ESI issues sooner rather than later, and empower the bench to play a more active role in the resolution of the matter at hand.”

Sal Mancuso, an industry expert with more than 25 years of experience providing litigation and practice support services from both the law firm and the service provider side of the industry, maintains and strengthens client relationships through establishing protocols based on best practices. Sal has achieved tremendous success creating and restructuring litigation support departments at Am Law 100 firms.

“It’s an honor to be a part of “Perspectives on Procedure: A Civil Rules Roundtable”,” added Mr. Mancuso. “It is important that the Courts and eDiscovery industry experts continue to work together to increase awareness and collaboration between the parties.”
