DRC Special Masters

Both Federal and State courts can appoint special masters in situations where the magnitude or complexity of a case might overwhelm the time available to a judge. In these situations, DRC special masters can provide professional, experienced, neutral assistance to the Court and parties to streamline certain aspects of the litigation process.

Some of the instances in which a party may request/and a court may appoint a special master are:

  • Overseeing/monitoring discovery (or developing a discovery plan)

  • Resolving electronic discovery disputes

  • Assisting with complex mass tort actions

  • Conducting in camera document inspections

  • Making recommendations re: asset division or custody in divorce proceedings

  • Overseeing the winding up of a general partnership

  • Making insurance coverage determinations

  • Presiding over evidentiary hearings

  • Calculating attorney fees

  • Apportionment of damages
