Chris Dale has recently spoken at a number of events with Jonathan Maas of Huron Legal, talking to barristers and solicitors in Leeds and London, at ILTA INSIGHT and in Brussels. Jonathan's consistent theme has been the need for lawyers to identify the scope of the disclosure problem as early as possible - as Chris puts it in this interview "in the very small window between inception and the case management conference".
