Esquire Litigation Solutions hosted the panel session “How To Avoid An E-Discovery Crisis” today in Chicago which I moderated. The panelists were Stuart Hubbard, firmwide E-Discovery Manager at Schiff Hardin; Dwayne Krager, Litigation Support Specialist at Foley Lardner and Denio DiFrancesco, Automated Practice Support Specialist at Mayer Brown.
The spirited discussion was attended by approximately 50 people and covered strategies to prepare for a Rule 26(f) meeting, the rol of litigation support in a Rule 26(f) meeting, technologies to streamline the review process and how to organize and manage data, both ESI and paper. The final few minutes covered the new paradigms of the change in definition of a document and how to deal with large amounts of native files without trying to TIFF and Bates number every page, a change all the panelsits agreed was already upon us.
Esquire filmed the presentation and I will provide a link to the video as soon as it is available.
