What are your rights and duties as a defendant, in regards to potential evidence, upon being served with the complaint in a lawsuit?

You are sitting at your desk at your job when a mail carrier comes in and asks the receptionist to sign a receipt for a certified letter. Upon opening the letter, the receptionist discovers a complaint filed against the company. YOU ARE BEING SUED! After a few deep breaths you call the company attorney who informs you of the company’s rights and duties as a defendant in a lawsuit. Months later, as your company is firmly involved in the lawsuit, your receptionist again is asked to sign a receipt for a certified letter. This time it is a Motion to Compel Discovery and it asks the company to produce for the defendant a copy of every written document in the company’s possession and for a full copy of the company’s computer hard drives, emails and other electronic files. Again, you do the right thing and call the attorney.
