Generally speaking, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to e-discovery; the variance in industry, size and even culture means that each solution needs to be carefully selected and tailored to the needs of a company. That being said, there are certainly trends that are a challenge to the e-discovery process that cut across all of these demographics
Recently, a survey of in-house professionals struck out to determine which challenges were the most pressing for corporations. The resulting answer found that changes in “bring your own device” programs, reducing discovery costs, and the use of cloud storage were front-of-mind for many legal teams.
But even with an indication of which discovery trends are making waves, the leap to how it affects your operation can be difficult. Connecting the dots between trends and tactical planning requires a deep understanding of the challenges of e-discovery from those who have implemented successful strategies to combat it.
To foster that understanding, readers can tune into an upcoming webcast on Mar 26 at 2 pm ET that will dive deeper into these survey results and offer powerful insight on what your team can do about them. The event will feature Mark Harrington, corporate secretary and general counsel at guidance software, and Chad McManamy, assistant general counsel at Guidance Software.
Prior to joining Guidance, Harrington was a senior attorney at Intel where he worked on complex intellectual property agreements, mergers and acquisitions and general corporate matters. Harrington also worked on electronic discovery and litigation matters for the law firm of Munger, Tolles and Olson in Los Angeles, Calif.
McManamy worked for six years at The Mogin Law Firm specializing in the area of antitrust class action litigation in both state and federal court. As part of his practice, he managed large document productions and review projects in some of the biggest antitrust cases in the country.
Together Harrington and McManamy bring years of experience identifying and mitigating e-discovery challenges, and will discuss at length, the findings of the survey at its significance.
Again, the event will take place on Mar 26 at 2 pm ET and interested parties can register now.
