  • Working From Home 2: The Sequel Dec 15 2020 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Stephanie Clerkin, Brian Klunk & Mary Mack
    Many, many years ago, in April of 2020, Korein Tillery’s Stephanie Clerkin and Divergent Language Solutions’ Brian Klunk held webinars on the challenges of working from home, and offered tips and ideas on how to handle what they thought would be a few weeks of remote work. Here we are, nine months later, and the two have come together for a useful and amusing look at how their perspectives evolved.

    With the prospect of going back to the office full time seeming to be a goal for well into 2021 join EDRM’s Mary Mack as she moderates a discussion with Stephanie and Brian, exploring what working from home means as we approach the new year. Please feel free to offer your experiences and best practices via email info@edrm.net so we can include them in this conversation.

    Brian Klunk is Divergent Language Solutions’ Business Development Manager, responsible for new and existing accounts, and partnership development. Brian spent seven years with ALM media where he worked with legal media titles such as ‘The American Lawyer,’ ‘National Law Journal,’ and Law.com.

Working with all departments in the Firm, she understands how to bridge the gap between the legal teams and IT personnel to streamline discovery efforts and design cost-effective solutions for clients. She is responsible for the processing, analysis, review and production of numerous terabytes of ESI.

  • The Outer Limits of discovery? The Actavis decision and production Dec 10 2020 4:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Lea Malani Bays, Robert Keeling and Tom Gricks
    [Orwellian Narrator] "There is nothing wrong with your television set.... You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits."

    Most practitioners view the implications of the Actavis decision(s) as a cosmic departure from reality. Relevance has served as an express limitation on the scope of discovery ever since the Federal Rules were promulgated in 1938. So how can the Court order the production of documents without a relevance review, subject only to an eventual clawback?

    Join our panelists as they take a closer look at the practice surrounding the production of irrelevant materials, particularly in light of modern review techniques. We will explore jurisprudence and alternatives from agreed production to mandatory production, from slip-sheets to redaction to exclusion. Topics to be covered will include:
    •Client perspectives and the implications of confidential commercial information versus general civil litigation;
    •The evolution of production of irrelevant documents as a function of technology-assisted review;
    •Non-responsive documents and government investigations;
    •Production and the irrelevant family member; and
    •Deadlines, sanctions, privilege screens and clawbacks.

    All registered will receive a link to the recording and related resources.
