Topics Covered

E-Discovery is a “must know” topic for every litigator and in-house counsel.

  • Learn the most recent law on e-discovery
  • Discover best practices in this expanding field
  • Understand your client’s challenges, from the perspective of in-house counsel

Our lives have become so dependent on electronic devices, especially in the workplace. And every bit of work on those devices leaves tracks—tracks that, in a litigation context, may be of critical importance to the outcome of the case.

E-discovery, in the eyes of many, is partly responsible for the decreased number of cases going to trial: it is often just too hard, and in almost every case too expensive, to pursue a case to verdict. The burdens of e-discovery are unlikely to ease anytime soon. The attorney who fully understands the rules related to e-discovery, and the insight on how to use those rules to the client’s advantage, will have a leg up on the opposing side. The attorney cannot do it alone, however: the client must be an equal partner in the effort after the litigation begins, and preferably long before.

This seminar will provide you with a thorough grounding in the diverse aspects of e-discovery. Our experienced speakers—with responsibilities for e-discovery matters on the law firm side and on the in-house counsel side—will present a holistic method for identifying, confronting, and prevailing over e-discovery challenges. Spend two hours with us—you and your clients will benefit. And your e-mail will still be there when it’s over!

Among the topics to be covered:

  • An overview of (i) state and federal rules addressing the discovery of electronically stored information; (ii) the key phases of e-discovery (identification / preservation / analysis and review / production / presentation); and (iii) emerging trends involving the concepts of reasonableness, proportionality, and cooperation
  • A summary of recent, notable e-discovery decisions, including cases from Virginia state and federal courts
  • The view from in-house—a discussion of what organizations need to know about e-discovery, how they can implement policies and procedures to handle key aspects of e-discovery in-house, and when they need to call for help
