One hour Recover Costs, Improve Profits & Reduce Risk: Cost Recovery for eDiscovery Content

Sponsored by:

Law firms, like all businesses, are constantly looking for ways to reduce costs and improve profits. Traditional cost recovery focuses on tracking, managing and assigning costs associated with activities such as scanning, faxing, printing, and e-mailing. To make documents eDiscoverable at point of capture, documents should be tagged with metadata such as filename, matter, client and billing code information; easing the burden on staff and lawyers, so more time can be spent strategizing the case and less time at the device handling administrative tasks. This session will explore various practices for integrating eDiscovery into traditional cost recovery tactics. Industry experts will also discuss tips and tricks to help profits soar while also reducing risk of data loss.

One hour Attack of the Clouds: Virtual Privacy & Online Security

Look at cloud computing through the lens of eDiscovery and its easy to become confused as to whether the cloud is a great equalizer; allowing firms of all sizes to spend less time and money on the mechanics of eDiscovery, or the refuge of the naïve for whom its only a matter of time until their miracle solution falls flat. The cloud offers great cost savings and convenience to law practitioners, but there are very real concerns about cloud privacy and security.

Our expert panel will share a unique legal and technical perspective on privacy and security in the cloud, looking at case law regarding the liability of cloud providers and how it impacts the health of the cloud industry. This informative discussion will span legal and cybersecurity issues with the cloud, giving you a clear view of the risks and rewards involved with this exciting new technology.

One hour Unbundling Litigation: Selecting and Using E-Discovery Counsel

There was a time when corporations expected litigation counsel to handle all aspects of litigation, including discovery.  However, as e-discovery becomes more complex and mistakes are increasingly common, there is a trend toward unbundling litigation and selecting a separate e-discovery counsel.  E-discovery counsel is often a separate law firm that specializes in e-discovery issues and can do the work better, faster and cheaper than general litigation lawyers.  This panel will discuss the pros and cons of using e-discovery counsel in complex litigation.  We will also discuss best practices for selecting and integrating e-discovery counsel into the litigation process.

Information security is a high priority concern for both corporations and law firms in the eDiscovery process. The challenge is translating this concern into practice.

In this session, we will offer an overview of approaches that will allow lawyers to ethically meet their  professional obligations related to information security best practices, standards and processes, such as:
  • Why a process driven approach to information security is needed?
  • Who should be responsible for information security in the eDiscovery process?

  • How to evaluate information security practices in your eDiscovery partner or vendor?
