Pryor Cashman Partner James Klaiber, a member of the firm's Intellectual Property Group, and Associate Leighton Dellinger have written an article discussing the sources of e-discovery costs and what the International Trade Commission and other litigation forums are doing to contain them. The article, entitled "Limiting E-Discovery in Intellectual Property Litigation: The International Trade Commission Follows a Warmly Welcomed Trend," was published in the December 14, 2012 edition of the BNA Patent, Trademark & Copyright Journal.
