Our Electronic Discovery and Information Governance practice group is a dedicated, multi-disciplinary team of attorneys that advises clients on the proactive use of data management policies, the cost effective management of electronic discovery and the strategic use of technology.
With more than a decade of experience in dealing with the real world challenges of electronic stored information (ESI), we understand the technical, legal and strategic issues that arise in this complex and evolving area of the law. Our attorneys and paralegals have managed electronic discovery in complex multidistrict litigation, government investigations and in response to third-party subpoenas. Team members lecture and write frequently on electronic discovery and are involved with the Sedona Conference Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production, the ABA Committee on Pretrial Practice and Discovery, the ABA Law Practice Management Section as well as industry groups such as Women in eDiscovery.
