4/12/2012

Webcast

12:00 p.m. EDT

The impact and cost of eDiscovery are growing substantially as companies continue to struggle with demands.  In a lawsuit, as much as one-quarter of a company’s outside legal fees can be related to attorney review and discovery costs. Not only are the expenses and consequences of eDiscovery significant, but legal teams face many potential pitfalls and challenges, often learning firsthand that when it comes to eDiscovery, what you know or don't know can make or break your case. 

In the face of this rising tide, managing partners and general counsel are seeking ways to minimize e-discovery risk and reduce expenses. Yet for many organizations, e-discovery remains a reactive process and they do not have a standard operating procedure in place.

While e-discovery cannot be deferred or avoided, there are opportunities to better manage the process and also realize positive returns. Seyfarth's eDiscovery & Information Governance practice co-chair, Scott Carlson, along with other panelists, will discuss best practices and cost-effective strategies to help you better prepare for discovery, and create efficient, defensible processes and systems.
