Avoiding E-Discovery Landmines

Eric J. Sinrod; Partner, Duane Morris & Co-Host of TechLaw10 Podcasts
The target of discovery in civil litigation now is electronic data. The failure to respond effectively to electronic discovery demands can lead to significant monetary sanctions, adverse case results, and even jail time. The failure to have one’s electronic discovery house in order can mean that efforts to respond to electronic discovery demands can be extremely burdensome and expensive as repeat fire drills. This presentation will explain the current state of the law and technology when it comes to electronic discovery and will provide guidance on how best to effectively handle electronic discovery in civil litigation to minimize expense and to optimize case results.

  • Accelerate and Enhance Case Strategy to Take Control of Discovery Recorded: Aug 4 2011 49 mins
    When confronted with fast-moving, large complex matters, or a series of internal investigations, the corporate legal department must move quickly to identify and collect potentially relevant information, assess the company’s position and attendant risks, and if required proceed to a cost-effective document review.
    This webinar will explore how organizations can leverage proactive governance policies and analytics-based early case assessment capabilities to take better control of discovery. Attorneys must efficiently identify, collect and process large volumes of information, slice and dice the data set to assess the merits, potential liabilities and costs of a matter, and filter the reviewable document set to minimize the cost of document review. And document review itself needs to leverage advanced technologies and methodologies to drive efficient and high-productivity review.
    In this webinar attendees will learn:
    • How to leverage information governance policies to drive efficient early case assessment
    • How a meaning-based computing platform intelligently integrates data from disparate sources to help minimize risk and reduce costs
    • How to use different analytical technologies to accelerate legal decision-making
    • How archives and legal repositories can efficiently manage large data volumes and multiple data formats while accelerating data identification and collection for fast-moving investigations
    • How an integrated, unified discovery platform can facilitate collaboration between Legal, IT, Compliance, and Records Management
  • Records Management – the Dawn of a New Era? Recorded: May 24 2011 63 mins
    You create it and store it. You manage it and retrieve it. You buy it and sell it. Information is the fuel that drives your business: it’s one of your greatest assets. But it can also be a liability. Having a records management solution in place, that spans electronic records and emails as well as physical records helps all organizations to not only reduce the risks they are exposed to, but to improve staff productivity while managing their records consistently and efficiently.

    Why does this matter? Well, not least because of the frequency with which poor information management and bad record-keeping practices are cited by regulators such as the FSA in the prosecution of their member firms. And not only that but the Information Commissioner now has the power to fine any business up to £500,000 in relation to poor information management practices – and the fines have already begun. Having a consistent, relevant and compliant records and information management infrastructure can not only mitigate these risks but also help improve process quality, increase efficiency and recognize significant cost savings at an operational level.

    But with real concerns on how to seamlessly (and consistently) integrate data from multiple sources and how to ensure that this data is integrated and embedded into business process, organizations are often confused as to how they can move towards an infrastructure-led approach to managing all corporate information.

    Attend this Webinar and you will hear:
    • How to plan and implement an RM solution that spans physical and electronic records
    • The steps to take to ensure a solution that has the ability to provide consistent, organization-wide RM
    • How other organizations have embraced RM to provide real business benefits

  • Social Media & E-Discovery: Riches and Risks Recorded: Nov 9 2010 46 mins
    The use of social media evidence in electronic discovery has escalated dramatically in the last year. There are indeed “nuggets of gold” in social media evidence, but you don’t necessarily mine them without peril. There’s a way to do it correctly and a way to get yourself in trouble, perhaps by inadvertently doing something unethical or perhaps by simply not knowing how to obtain the evidence appropriately. Our experts will discuss the role of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the Stored Communications Act in dealing with social media evidence and they will also help you understand when to go to the social media provider and when to go to the user to procure your evidence. Case law is new in this area, but recent cases are instructive, and this session will discuss a few of the most noteworthy cases.
  • Challenges of Litigation Holds Recorded: Nov 9 2010 47 mins

  • What IT Needs to Know About the Law Recorded: May 26 2010 64 mins
    One of the key points we discuss on Techdirt is the intersection of technology, innovation and the law. While many in IT don't think they need to know much about the law, that's been changing rapidly. The intersection of IT and the law has been increasing, and it's rarely the lawyers who understand the IT side of things -- so the IT folks need to understand the legal side. Join Mike Masnick from Floor64 as he moderates this discussion with Larry Downes (Bell Mason Group), and David Navetta (Information Law Group).
