Logikcull Launches On-line e-Discovery Education for the Legal Community. And it’s Free

WASHINGTON, DC, September 15, 2014 – Logikcull announced today the launch of its E-Discovery Education for Everyone initiative. With this initiative, lawyers around the world will be able to learn e-discovery by performing e-discovery, for free, and without the need for special software or hardware. Simply log-in and Logikcull will automatically teach you how to do e-discovery. Each free Logikcull account comes with a set of “sandbox-data” that lawyers can use to learn about metadata, de-duplication, and many other technical aspects of e-discovery.

Understanding e-discovery is becoming increasingly important to the legal community. For instance, California has an open ethics opinion that states lawyers that don’t attempt to learn about e-discovery may face malpractice claims. The Logikcull E-Discovery Education for Everyone initiative hopes to mitigate that risk for attorneys everywhere.

“E-discovery education is vital for lawyers practicing in the 21st century—which is to say, all of us. The time is nigh when not understanding e-discovery will be malpractice; but why wait until then? If you want to remain competitive and competent, you’d better know about it now.” said Mark Wilson, writer for Findlaw.com who recently wrote about “Is Not Understanding e-Discovery Unethical?” http://blogs.findlaw.com/technologist/2014/08/is-not-understanding-e-discovery-unethical.html

One of the problems with learning about e-discovery is just that: you learn about it in the very traditional CLE-way. But usually, you don’t actually get to practice e-discovery until it’s too late. And if it’s too late, you may end up making poor e-discovery choices that can result in professional misconduct. With Logikcull, lawyers can learn e-discovery by doing e-discovery in a safe and real-world environment. This learn-by-doing environment will better prepare legal professionals when e-discovery demands arise.

“The bottom line is, you can no longer dodge e-discovery or say it is not relevant to you and your practice,” said Susan Cartier Liebel, Founder & CEO & Solo Practice University. “Given the use of technological devices, cloud services by almost everyone as well as storage, every legal matter has potential for e-discovery issues. And to not know e-discovery may ‘render an attorney ethically incompetent to handle’ certain cases even if they are otherwise highly competent to do so is an alarming wake-up call according to a recently proposed California ethics opinion.”

Along with an automated e-discovery training exercise, lawyers can access dozens of e-discovery educational videos in Logikcull like, “What’s a good QC checklist for document productions?” and “How do I make a native file document production?” Legal professionals can also upload their own training data to Logikcull (maximum of 100MB) to create unique e-discovery scenarios.

Get your free e-discovery education by signing up for a Logikcull sandbox account today: http://logikcull.com/sign-up

Advanced Discovery Helps Kick Off Bay Area In-House Counsel Meetup Group with Social Media CLE

San Francisco, CA – Advanced Discovery, a leading eDiscovery and document review solutions provider with offices across the U.S., will be partnering with Brian Greenberg, in-house legal counsel to a major mass media company and founder of New York In-House Counsel, an active professional networking group exclusively for in-house lawyers, to launch a sister group in the San Francisco Bay area. The inaugural meeting of Bay Area In-House Counsel will be held in San Francisco’s financial district (location to be disclosed upon registration), Thursday, September 18th from 6:30—9:30 p.m., with an MCLE presentation entitled “Top 10 Ways to Tarnish Your Brand in Social Media.”

Greenberg founded New York In-House Counsel groupin 2010 with roughly 20 attorneys attending the first meeting. The monthly meetings now host anywhere from 30 to 100 members. The stated goal of the group is to conduct outstanding, free continuing legal education presentations and networking events for members on a monthly basis. Greenberg hopes the format will be as successful in the Bay Area as it has been in New York City.

“We look forward to building in the Bay Area what we’ve been able to achieve so successfully in New York—an exclusive community of bright, vibrant and engaged in-house practitioners who share a genuine interest in networking and thought leadership programs,” says Greenberg. “Curating for this has been our formula for success with New York In-House Counsel, and we are excited to apply what’s worked so well for us back East to the Bay Area group.”

The first program will look at risks associated with the use of social media by attorneys and their business clients.

Although social media can be used as a marketing tool for law firms, uninformed use can create issues for users and their firms. Attorneys Tsan Abrahams and Nate Garhart of Colbalt LLP will address this issue in their CLE-approved presentation, “Top 10 Ways to Tarnish Your Brand in Social Media.”

Advanced Discovery, which has been a strong supporter of the New York group, was invited to host a cocktail reception for the Bay Area group following the inaugural talk.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Advanced Discovery and Cobalt to launch Bay Area In-House Counsel and kick off our inaugural event. I couldn’t think of better partners to help introduce us to the Bay Area in-house community, and I am truly grateful for their support and their confidence in the group and its potential,” said Greenberg.

The event is free to members, and membership is also free to lawyers who meet the group’s membership criteria. The meetup group is exclusive to attorneys who are currently employed full time as in-house corporate, public interest or government counsel. Attorneys can join the group and register for the event on the Bay Area In-House Counsel Meetup site.

A D.C. company’s Logikcull solution to pricey data problem

The same technology used by lawyers to weed out mountains of extraneous documents to find the smoking gun to win their case is now being used by city governments to process public records requests from journalists and the public. And a growing number of local governments are hiring a small, relatively unknown company to do it. District-based Logikcull is a data management business that gets paid by law firms, corporations and government agencies to organize their ever-growing pool of electronic data that lawsuits, investigations and information requests force them to sift through.

Since March, the District and Baltimore have hired Logikcull to process electronic data related to the public information requests they receive each year. D.C. has about five pending Freedom of Information Act requests at any given time, and Baltimore has between 350 and 500 a year, according to attorneys for the cities. D.C.’s contract with Logikcull is for $2,000 and Baltimore’s is $60,000. The work represents a small but growing part of Logikcull’s multi-million dollar business.“It used to be you had giant storage rooms with file cabinets, and you’d send someone to find a file, bring it back, review it and redact whatever needs to be redacted and then produce it,” said V. David Zvenyach, general counsel for the D.C. Council. “Now it’s different. Thousands of documents can be retrieved at a moment’s notice. Part of the challenge of FOIA in the modern age is the volume of documents. As we started to get more FOIA requests, we wanted to make sure we had a system that met our needs.”

The Benefit of Early Case Assessment in Food Court

Scores of manufacturers of food and beverage products have become the targets of consumer fraud class actions challenging their use of words such as “all-natural,” “wholesome” and “healthy” on their labels. Although many of these claims range from frivolous to merit-less, the companies still face the prospect of massive document collections and reviews, which often bloat their legal expenditures beyond budget and cut into their already narrow margins. There may be no “silver bullet” to stifle these threats, but there is promising new technology that can be effective in evaluating liability and promoting strategic action early enough to make a difference. Early case assessment (ECA) promises superior knowledge earlier in the game with rewards of better outcomes and lower costs. There are tools, which can leverage next generation search technology, assist defense counsel in evaluating potential liability and enable strategic planning.  ECA can empower proportional budgeting for litigation or determining reasonable settlement values. For this theory to hold, however, activation of the ECA process should be undertaken as soon as allegations are raised or a complaint is received.  continued…. To read the article on the Food Manufacturing website click here.
