Disclosure

The process formerly known as discovery by which documents are exchanged between parties in litigation in England and Wales.  Technically the process has three phases - a) disclosure - making it known that the documents exist by providing the other party with a list, b) inspection - allowing the other party to look at the documents c) the provision of copies.  Typically all three phases are dealt with together.  Unlike the US, production of documents is initially driven by "push" i.e. there is an obligation on a party to disclose their documents which are material to the case.  For full details see CPR 31 and PD 31.

Duty to preserve evidence

It is well established that the duty to preserve evidence arises when a party reasonably anticipates litigation.

"[O]nce a party reasonably anticipates litigation, it must suspend its routine document retention/destruction policy and put in place a 'litigation hold' to ensure the preservation of relevant documents."

A plaintiff's duty is more often triggered before litigation commences, in large part because plaintiffs control the timing of litigation.
