One of the implications of the coronavirus outbreak is a remote workforce, leaving many legal teams scrambling on how to manage their time-sensitive matters. Investigations involving ESI, however, are one area where we can maintain some degree of normality. Most investigations are done remotely and—with the right tools and people—they can usually be completed quickly.
