Special Master:

The use of Special Masters in discovery is relatively common. A Special Master can manage a discovery plan, issue orders resolving discovery disputes, make recommendations to the judge, and monitor ongoing discovery. The use of a Special Master as to discovery has long ago proven to be a cost-effective manner in which to expedite and streamline complex litigation.



Another adjunct to the Court system is a Receiver, this individual would hold and conserve property until a dispute is resolved. A Receiver can also be given extensive responsibilities during the pendency of a case. Most times Receivers are actually appointed to oversee a business or real estate property as well as the selling or leasing of particular assets. A Receiver is another cost-effective way by which to limit parties’ disputes and provide means by which a case can be easily resolved.
