Collaboratively Prepare for Depositions with Everlaw
6/10/2020: 1-2pm ET

    Post-review litigation preparation traditionally occurs over email, with competing versions of outlines sent back and forth until no one is sure what’s the most up to date. Manual drudgery abounds, whether it’s printing out copies of exhibits, transcribing sticky notes post-deposition, or synchronizing deposition insights with transcripts. All this adds up to countless hours lost and spiraling costs that could have been better spent on substantive legal work.

    Everlaw’s deposition tools enable legal departments to collaborate securely with colleagues, business partners, inside or outside counsel to efficiently manage the end-to-end process of investigations or litigation. Integrated deposition preparation and tracking enable significant cost reductions and time savings by eliminating the need to print out physical copies of all exhibits, pass handwritten notes, and later transfer key information into an online repository. All this adds up to better strategic alignment on teams, which frees up more resources to focus on the core issues of legal matters.

A Proposed TAR Framework
6/28/2020: 1-2pm ET

    It’s time to have a candid conversation about the use of technology-assisted review (TAR) in litigation. There are inconsistent TAR standards and practitioners are weaponizing the use of TAR to the detriment of litigants and the courts. During this webinar, moderated by former US Magistrate Judge and noted Special Master James Francis, Kirkland & Ellis partner Michelle Six and Redgrave partner Christine Payne, will explore a proposed path forward that may reduce cost and contention so that practitioners may take advantage of the efficiency that TAR is intended to provide to litigants. Learn how to skip costly preemptive negotiations about TAR protocols in favor of a straightforward, objective process that parties may implement on any review process.
