Capitalize on Managed Print Services – Smart Print Management for Law Offices

Sponsored by


Because law firms rely heavily on documents, providing a reliable printing and document solution is a serious concern. It is essential for all law firms that associates and staff can reliably produce printed documents for their clients and courts, at any time of day. Managed Print Services (MPS) provides a flexible, efficient way to professionally manage your law office print and copy process for your entire firm.

While the cost savings and efficiency benefits associated with MPS are significant, it’s important for firms to realize this is a multi-faceted IT solution that should be customized to your particular environment.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Law firm MPS trends as we approach 2013
  • Assessing your current printer fleet
  • The ins and outs of fleet management software

Taking Control:  Strategies to Rein in Escalating eDiscovery Costs      

Sponsored by


How can an organization reasonably comply with legal obligations and govern and protect information when an employee can fill an entire library with the data they store on a smartphone?  The proliferation of human friendly electronically stored information means traditional document discovery and review methods are no longer cost effective, let alone practical, for legal and regulatory productions.  Small matters today are sinking valuable staff and outside counsel time in an ocean of email. No case is better evidence of this then Oracle v SAP, where discovery review for one hundred and sixty-five custodians was estimated at $16.5 million. That’s an average of $100,000 a custodian.

Please join this webinar to learn how to stem the tide of escalating costs in litigation without disrupting business.  Key takeaways include strategies to:

  • Regain control and efficiently manage the eDiscovery process to quickly pinpoint facts that need attention
  • Understand the meaning of discoverable data to speed case assessment and reduce the data volume associated with discovery and review
  • Formulate a checklist of questions for your team and counsel to identify opportunities to reduce risk and cost

The Risks of BYOD and What You Can Do About Them      

Sponsored by


BYOD or Bring Your Own Device, is an unstoppable force in today's corporate environment, where recent statistics have suggested that the number of employees bringing their own devices to the workplace have reached 78% of the workforce.  From an eDiscovery perspective is, who owns the data?  Is it the corporation or the individual?  Does discovery include everything from the device, the contacts, text messages, call logs, geo tagging, etc.?  What data can be captured for an eDiscovery collection without infringing on the privacy rights of the individual?  What data can be left behind without exposing a corporation to allegations of spoliation?  Companies must be proactive in managing BYO devices in the workplace environment and ensuring data is preserved and collected in a defensible manner without compromising and organizations ability to be successful in litigation while maintaining a balance to preserve employee privacy rights.

Bringing Electronic Discovery In-House as a Managed Service      

Sponsored by


This presentation highlights an industry paradigm shift away from litigants using outsourced electronic discovery vendors.  Instead – and for a number of reasons – litigants increasingly rely on in-house resources.  However, creating a competent electronic discovery practice is riddled with land mines.  Best practice for enterprises requires a correct balance of legal advocacy, technology and operational excellence.

Participants will learn:

  • Practical examples from three attorneys who have implemented a “managed services” model for electronic discovery
  • Ways to manage electronic discovery risk across the enterprise, such as:
    • Data security for client data
    • Adequately support all legal professionals
    • Uniform electronic discovery best practices
  • Challenges of meeting electronic discovery best practices, especially around evidence data management, chain of custody and quality control
  • Two cases will be referenced:
    • J-M Manufacturing v. McDermott Will, (No. BC462832, Calif. Super., Los Angeles Co.)
    • Victor Stanley v. Creative Pipe, (250 F.R.D. 251 (D. Md. 2008))

Cloud Based Escrow Protection for SaaS: Protecting Subscribers against the What-If’s      

Sponsored by


Companies are continuing to embrace the cloud for technology in the form of Software as a Service (SaaS).  One of the unique challenges posed by SaaS applications is bankruptcy protection.  Traditional approaches to mitigating such risks through software escrow have limited applicability to many SaaS arrangements.  This session will discuss a new approach to providing escrow protection where the escrow agent maintains a virtual and functional copy of the SaaS environment in escrow to provide subscribers with protection in the event of the SaaS provider’s bankruptcy and other what-if’s. The contractual structure, physical components, triggering mechanisms and participants in such in such arrangements are key for its success. 

Likewise, expertise in such contingency planning is vital considering that a SaaS solution may be hosted by unknown third parties or reliant on small, unproven vendors.

SaaS subscribers should be aware of the risks to application continuity posed by bankruptcy and other potential catastrophes, such as force majeure and sudden business cessation.  In addition, SaaS vendors looking to gain market traction and generate revenue need to help their prospects overcome objections to doing business by establishing contingencies to mitigate such risks and assure application continuity in case something happens. In the fast-paced world of business negotiations, how do you engender trust between the buyer and the seller?

As a Legal professional, attend this session to learn how you can develop best practice strategies necessary to protect a subscriber’s investments in SaaS, while enabling the SaaS provider to instill trust with their prospects. With proper contingency planning and a well-crafted escrow agreement, you can guide your client through the maze of previously unanswered cloud computing questions and concerns. You can improve your business acumen, while demonstrating to your client that you have the expertise to safely guide them through the process of negotiating a SaaS Subscription Agreement.

Attend this session to discover how to:

  • Facilitate SaaS subscriptions through an escrow arrangement
  • Identify scenarios by which contingency plans should be contemplated
  • Engender trust between the buyer and seller
  • Overcome the risk objections to doing business
  • Optimize the subscriber-provider relationship
  • Become a valued trusted advisor to your clients

Pulling the Curtain Back on Predictive Coding      

Sponsored by


So, what is Predictive Coding? Predictive coding is not as mysterious as some would lead you to believe. First, Predictive Coding is not a “black box” that spits out results with no discernible logic… Predictive Coding is a process which combines input from  case experts (legal professionals), conceptually based analytics to find key documents and create seed sets, proven workflow to deliver consistent, statistically certain results, iterative machine-learning to “find like this” based on meaning, not keywords and integrated sampling for certainty and unparalleled defensibility.

For Predictive Coding to be considered a more useful process than those currently used, it has to:

  • Return a higher level of correct results than current search technologies - consistently
  • Provide results faster than current processes
  • Cost measurably less than current processes
This webinar will explain the Predictive Coding process steps in greater detail and show how it’s able to produce statistically better results, faster, and for a lower cost than current traditional linear review processes.

Putting the "Defensible" into Defensible Predictive Coding: Drivers, Technology and Workflow      

Sponsored by


Many attorneys and litigation support personnel remain concerned about the status of predictive coding: its underlying statistical-based technology, the defensibility of its workflow, and its status with the judiciary as a legitimate tool for document culling and review in eDiscovery.

Join Matt Nelson, author of “Predictive Coding for Dummies,” as we explore how attorneys can use predictive coding technology to defensibly train, predict, and test automated coding results to significantly reduce the volume, time and cost of review. Topics that we will examine include:

  • What lessons can we draw from current cases including Da Silva Moore, Kleen Products and Global Aerospace?
  • How do statistical sampling methods form the basis for a defensible predictive coding workflow?
  • How can attorneys assess “Black Box” from “White Box” approaches to predictive coding and get visibility into the prediction process so they can make informed decisions with confidence in the results?
  • How does patent-pending Active Learning Technology help increase accuracy with minimal human input?
  • What are the different scenarios for taking advantage of predictive coding in investigations and litigation to reduce costs and minimize risk?
