Emerging Claims and Trends in COVID-19 Litigation

As individuals, companies, and government bodies are quickly responding to the coronavirus pandemic, the legal profession is anticipating a spate of litigation on how the crisis has been handled and its impact on society. With nearly 800 claims filed in less than 2 months, COVID-19 has not only changed how lawyers work but the substantive causes of action they pursue for their clients. DiCello Levitt Gutzler was among those first firms, who filed a lawsuit on behalf of the student body against the Arizona Board of Regents about refunding unused tuition during the campus shutdown this spring. The firm has also filed lawsuits against large insurance companies for allegedly refusing to honor their contractual obligations to policyholders for losses suffered due to COVID-19 related causes.

Join Adam Levitt, the firm’s co-founding partner, and Jennifer Roberts, Product Marketing Manager at Everlaw, as they explore how claims related to the COVID-19 pandemic are impacting the practice of law from practice areas as diverse as personal injury, education and business continuity, to banking, insurance, and even securities law.

  • Now Available at No Cost: Storybuilder by Everlaw Mar 24 2021 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Alex Hafez, Jennifer Roberts
    We're replaying our exciting webinar on Storybuilder by Everlaw - now available for free!

    Post-review litigation preparation traditionally occurs over email, with competing versions of outlines sent back and forth until no one is sure what’s the most up to date. Digitally preparing for trial often involves a patchwork of solutions, each with a separate cost and the added risk of importing data across different platforms. All this adds up to countless hours lost and spiraling costs that could have been better spent on substantive legal work.

    Storybuilder by Everlaw is the first suite of deposition and trial preparation tools of its kind, now available for everyone at no cost. Storybuilder enables legal departments to collaborate securely with colleagues, business partners, inside or outside counsel to craft narratives and efficiently manage the end-to-end process of investigations or litigation. Narrative building ensures alignment among investigative teams by enabling collaborative organization of key documents into a compelling body of evidence. Integrated deposition tracking tools enable significant cost reductions and time savings by eliminating the need to print out physical copies of all exhibits, pass handwritten notes, and later transfer key information into an online repository.

    In a first for the legal industry, sign ups are now free for the Storybuilder by Everlaw platform.

    Join Alex Hafez and Jennifer Roberts for an overview of how Storybuilder streamlines litigation preparation and sets the stage for critical internal and external collaboration.

  • Disruption as an Enabler for Change: Transforming Ediscovery in the Cloud Recorded: Nov 25 2020 61 mins
    Caitlin Reinmuth, Product Marketing Manager; Gregory Campbell, Senior Solutions Architect
    Technology modernisation in the legal world has evolved from upgrading operating systems and adopting modern word processors, to moving critical workflows like ediscovery to the cloud. However, according to the 2019 ILTA Technology Survey, only 33% of law firms had a cloud-based ediscovery solution, with 15% looking to move to the cloud in the next 12 months. Recent global events like the coronavirus pandemic are forcing legal teams to accelerate the transition to modern, cloud-based ediscovery platforms for their remote teams.

    Join Everlaw's Caitlin Reinmuth, Product Marketing Manager, and Gregory Campbell, Senior Solutions Architect, as they discuss how firms can transition to the cloud — piecemeal or entirely — to leverage the benefits of:

    - Empowering remote teams to collaborate on any stage, from anywhere
    - Scaling workflows based on caseloads, seamlessly
    - Recovering costs at different stages of ediscovery
    - Relying on enterprise-grade security for data protection and privacy
  • Transitioning Federal Agencies to the Cloud: Innovation in Procurement Recorded: Oct 28 2020 30 mins
    Angela Kovach, Senior Federal Solutions Architect; Caitlin Reinmuth, Product Marketing Manager
    One of the fastest routes to IT modernization lies in the adoption of cloud computing technology. By leveraging cloud technology, Federal agencies can rapidly implement new technologies while also saving costs that used to be allocated to data center maintenance. But perhaps most importantly, cloud technology empowers federal employees to access mission critical resources from wherever they may be working. Everlaw is a cloud-native ediscovery solution, optimized for self-service and instant deployment. Already equipped to support the federal government’s IT transformation, Everlaw expedites procurement for quicker access to an integrated, modern ediscovery solution.

    Technology modernization discussions are usually focused on the technology itself, but we think innovation can extend beyond products into federal processes. Join us as we explore ways that agencies can leverage technology and disruptive thinking to shake up the procurement process and discover fresh solutions to evergreen challenges. In this webinar we will discuss:

    - Taking advantage of agency “Wish Lists” (they’re not just for Santa)
    - Making the right “match” - what to look for in vendors during procurement planning
    - Fast tracking technology acquisitions with the FAR
    - Thinking outside the procurement box - how “Pitch Days” are helping agencies find innovative new solutions
  • Accelerating trends: Transforming efficiency in legal teams post covid-19 Recorded: Oct 20 2020 59 mins
    Shana Simmons, General Counsel
    The covid-19 pandemic has led to a rapid transformation in the legal industry. General counsels have had to swiftly implement remote collaboration tools, develop in-house resources, and rapidly adapt business strategies, all under budgetary pressures.

    Remote collaboration tools have been essential to dealing with customers, workforce, suppliers and other stakeholders in the legal ecosystem. Seeking a balance between in-house and outsourced counsel while optimising productivity is one of the primary challenges. Teams are having to revisit their operational strategy to do more with less, without compromising on the client experience.

    This Insight Hour will explore the recent trends for legal teams and how they are driving efficiencies to increase productivity and profitability.
    Among the key questions we will explore are:

    - Which trends have seen a pandemic driven acceleration and which will last even after the pandemic?
    - To what extent has technology been a key driver of efficiency?
    - Is it more efficient to invest in-house or to use outside counsel? How do you balance the two to optimise productivity?
    - Is covid-19 transforming D&I in the workplace, and if so, how?
  • Conducting Remote Internal Investigations with Everlaw Recorded: Oct 13 2020 41 mins
    Christina Ling, Product Marketing Manager; Chris Rauen, Solutions Architect
    Over the years, the adoption of cloud-based tools and remote collaboration has steadily increased, and the extensive shelter-in-place mandates associated with the coronavirus pandemic have forced legal practices in law firms and corporations to fully embrace remote-based work. Remote investigations could soon become the norm as enterprises look for ediscovery cloud alternatives amidst an increasingly digitally-connected, yet remote workforce.

    In this session, you will hear about how to seamlessly transition to collaborate and conduct investigations from anywhere. Join Everlaw as we discuss how legal teams can pivot to a new, remote world by:

    - Instantly spinning up a project by uploading data and setting up reviews
    - Quickly culling, searching on, and reviewing data
    - Empowering remote teams to collaborate with outside counsel and internal teams, from anywhere
    - Crafting cohesive reports to be easily reviewed by recipients for investigations
    - Relying on enterprise-grade security for data protection and privacy
  • Illuminating the Truth: A Conversation with Neal Katyal Recorded: Sep 29 2020 60 mins
    AJ Shankar, CEO; Neal Katyal
    The recent upheaval in the world has had a significant impact on every aspect of practicing law, as legal professionals have had to adjust to a new reality. That's why we've enlisted Neal Katyal, the former acting solicitor general and a special assistant attorney to the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office, to gain clarity in this fog of ambiguity.

    On September 29th at 11am PT (2pm ET), Neal Katyal and Everlaw CEO and Co-Founder, AJ Shankar, will have a wide-ranging discussion about the intersection of technology, collaboration, and the practice of law. More specifically, they'll touch on:

    - Developing the right argument at the right time, including how Neal prepares for Supreme Court arguments
    - How Neal’s perspective on the law has been informed by his work in private practice, representing the government, and teaching the law
    - Practicing law in the current climate
    - Pro bono work
    - Collaboration with remote teams during the global pandemic, and technology’s involvement in the practice of law
    - The importance of security and confidentiality in high-profile cases
  • Secure, Efficient, Remote Review: Organization Administration Made Easy Recorded: Aug 25 2020 43 mins
    Jennifer Roberts, Product Marketing Manager, Everlaw; Isabela Reid, Product Marketing Manager, Everlaw
    Managing multiple matters while safeguarding client data is undeniably difficult. With the recent shift to remote work, litigation support managers and other administrators now have the extra responsibilities of maintaining data security and ensuring ediscovery teams have access to the right documents and cloud-based tools. Additionally, complex matters require strict information governance and adherence to compliance guidelines. Security is more of a pressing issue now than ever before, but legal budgets and timelines remain tight. The right ediscovery solution must ensure that secure workflows go hand in hand with efficient workflows.

    Join Everlaw's Product Marketing Managers, Jennifer Roberts and Isabela Reid, as they show how the platform enables review administrators to accelerate the process of getting new cases up and running, increase control over their databases, and collaborate securely in a remote work environment.

  • Transitioning Federal Agencies to the Cloud: Finding the Right Functionality Fit Recorded: Jul 30 2020 29 mins
    Angela Kovach, Senior Federal Solutions Architect; Caitlin Reinmuth, Product Marketing Manager
    When the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or the CARES Act was passed into law on March 27, 2020, the package included significant funds for Federal agencies to expand bandwidth capabilities and make new technology procurements. The pandemic has highlighted the fact that long-term mission continuity is only possible through rapid modernization and workforce adaptation.

    One of the fastest routes to IT modernization lies in the adoption of cloud computing technology.

Already equipped to support the federal government’s IT transformation, Everlaw expedites procurement for quicker access to an integrated, modern ediscovery solution.

    This webinar series will focus on the considerations of federal agencies as they make the transition to the cloud, with the focus being on finding the right functionality fit. In this webinar we will discuss:

    - Features vs. Functionality - what’s the difference and why does it matter?
    - How to prioritize the functionality that matters most for mission performance.
    - Balance cost with technical requirements - how to find a balance between budgetary constraints and a technically acceptable solution.

    - Understanding how Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) models impact security obligations

    - The non-technical impacts of security decisions including impact on business functions, workflows and ethical/legal obligations.
  • How to Efficiently Respond to DSARs Recorded: Jun 9 2020 61 mins
    Gregory Campbell, Chirag Zaveri
    In the first year and a half since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect, over 275,000 complaints were filed and over £400M in fines issued. Some 70% of surveyed businesses worldwide failed to address requests made from individuals seeking to obtain a copy of their personal data as required by GDPR within the one-month time limit, indicating that organisations are struggling with higher volumes of Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR) under tighter timelines. The recent pandemic has also forced organisations to deal with the additional complexity of maintaining business productivity and collaboration among remote employees. Organisations are faced with how to respond to a DSAR, quickly, securely and cost-effectively, with a mostly remote workforce. With Everlaw, organisations are able to quickly discover unstructured data, reveal the relevant underlying information, and collaboratively act on these requests in a timely manner.

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    - The challenges experienced by organisations in respect of DSARs under the GDPR and how the Everlaw platform can help to overcome these

    - Opportunities for workflow optimisation and automation during DSAR review, including the identification of personal data and leveraging batch redactions

    - The use of Everlaw’s narrative building toolkit to provide the additional information that organisations are required to supply under the GDPR
  • Metadata: The Key to Understanding Your Document Corpus Recorded: Jun 2 2020 57 mins
    Alexis Hayman, Steven Scholtz
    Understanding metadata and its role in ediscovery is key for attorneys to provide competent representation under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct. Yet for many attorneys, metadata remains a mystery. Without a basic understanding of what metadata is, where it comes from, and how to leverage it during document review, it can be challenging to conduct effective early case assessment or craft an effective review strategy. This has far-reaching implications later in the process of litigation or investigations in terms of meeting case deadlines while controlling costs, and ultimately delivering results that satisfy clients.

    Join this webinar to improve your understanding and create a working knowledge of what ingestion is. Plus, you will learn:

    - The basics of data collection, metadata, and how metadata functions in ediscovery.
    - Why data ingestion is important to the practice of law.
    - Improve your understanding of ediscovery and why it's essential in providing competent representation.

  • How to Collaboratively Craft Narratives and Prepare for Depositions Recorded: Apr 30 2020 53 mins
    Alex Hafez, Jennifer Roberts
    Post-review litigation preparation traditionally occurs over email, with competing versions of outlines sent back and forth until no one is sure what’s the most up to date. Manual drudgery abounds, whether it’s printing out copies of exhibits, transcribing sticky notes post-deposition, or synchronizing deposition insights with transcripts. All this adds up to countless hours lost and spiraling costs that could have been better spent on substantive legal work.
