Work Smarter, Not Harder with Portfolio Management
For years, there was an unspoken notion that the only way to approach ediscovery was on a case-by-case basis; that every case was unique and similarly required a unique approach to discovery. As a result, many organizations have had to “re-invent” the wheel at the start of each case—meaning data is collected, analyzed, reviewed and produced wholly disconnected from other projects within that organization. This cycle has created a lot of inefficiency, especially considering that many aspects of an organizations’ existing case data could support the concept of a long-term, comprehensive portfolio management approach to e-discovery. Under the portfolio approach, the number of data transfers is minimized, the number of stored documents is reduced, and, ultimately, the cost of conducting e-discovery within your organization decreases significantly.

The Impact of Digital Age Innovations on the Attorney-Client Privilege
Technological innovations are posing a flurry of thorny considerations for the attorney-client privilege. Always narrowly construed, the zone of privilege protection is shrinking as technologies provide unexpected visibility into the confidential exchanges between clients and lawyers. Unless appropriate safeguards are taken, the use of email, social networks, cloud computing, and “bring your own device” policies could jeopardize enterprise privilege claims. As privacy erodes, what can be done to assure confidentiality and the legal guarantees it affords? This webcast gives you the answers.

How to channel Predictive Coding and Forensics together within the Big Data Landscape
Take a walk through a hypothetical case study while utilizing various analytic and investigative forensic tools to calculate how a case evolves over a series of webinars to demonstrate best practices within the “Big Data” landscape. In this webinar our presenters will leverage predictive coding technology to quickly and efficiently locate valuable evidence and show how to bypass irrelevant data by the Gigabyte, saving time and legal spend.

Changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure at final stages
The 2006 updates to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) put many requirements for eDiscovery in place to address issues of volume, expense and sanctions. Last August, the Rules Committee proposed amendments to the FRCP to update these changes and address broader concerns identified at the 2010 Duke Conference. While not yet in final form, the Public Comment period has closed and the issues are sufficiently clear that their impact can be predicted.
In this webinar, two outstanding experts on eDiscovery will discuss the proposed amendments, share their thoughts on what to expect and what corporate counsel can do to prepare.

Predictive Coding: How to Cut Through the ‘Hype’ and Determine Whether It’s Right for Your Review
With document review continuing to be the most expensive and time-consuming aspect of e-discovery, corporate counsel are seeking creative approaches for handling vast amounts of data in a cost-effective manner. Predictive coding is being heralded by many in the legal field as a key development in streamlining large-scale reviews and reducing expenses. Yet others have expressed concerns over its acceptability and defensibility within the judiciary system. Whether you currently use predictive coding or are evaluating it for future cases, you’ll want to hear our expert panelists discuss the pros and cons of technology-assisted review, including:
- Understanding the process
- The impact of recent court rulings and developments
- The risks, benefits and advantages of predictive coding
- Evaluating whether predictive coding is right for your case
- Balancing key elements and considerations
- Emerging best practices and stories from the field
