Written by Dan Regard, Founder and CEO at iDS, Fact Crashing Methodology covers the 9 Principles of Fact Crashing, along with the necessary tools needed to help change the way we litigate.

In the case of the Fact Crashing Methodology, the prioritization of structured data can provide a significant procedural, tactical, and even strategic advantage – speeding up dispute resolution by providing both parties with quicker access to mutually agreeable (or mutually obvious) facts.
These principles provide the missing tools that will change the way we litigate and summarize decades of experience learning how to identify, qualify, prioritize, and apply structured data to the benefit of resolving disputes, predominately in a legal setting.
