To what extent is it possible for a common approach to develop for managing eDiscovery? The court rules or the demands of a regulator impose certain constraints and practices, but it is open to any company and its lawyers to develop a set of practices for the management of discovery within those constraints. If one could add together the best of these, one might start to develop a common playbook capturing the best practices of those with the most experience.
Ari Kaplan has been working with FTI to find out from corporations what they have been developing for the management of eDiscovery. The findings appear in FTI’s Fifth Annual Advice from Counsel study. Ari Kaplan and FTI’s Mike Kinnaman are giving a webcast about these conclusions on 5 March at 1.00pm ET / 10.00am PT. The webcast will cover:
- Emerging best practices for the big three data management challenges: high data volumes, the “bring your own device” (BYOD) environment, and collecting data from the cloud
- How corporations are addressing these challenges, including the processes corporations are bringing in-house or opting to outsource
- What impact, if any, information governance programs are having on e-discovery
