Deposing a 30(b)(6) witness or preparing a corporate witness for a grueling deposition takes foresight and experience, but the preparations can be even more challenging when the witness is explaining electronically stored information (ESI) or corporate enterprise IT procedures. As "I don't know" answers -- or worse, inaccurate answers or ones that paint the company in the wrong light -- can make or break entire cases, you need a team of experienced data and IT infrastructure professionals on your side. After all, you've only got one shot at this depo. Make it count.
