E-discovery costs constitute 60-70% of a company’s total litigation spend in an average case or investigation. Fortunately, measures exist to rein in costs while significantly mitigating the risk of sanctions and lost information.
On Nov. 12 in New York City, Catalyst is presenting a free luncheon seminar and panel discussion for corporate officers, executives, general counsel and in-house legal staff on how to create a comprehensive data preservation program and e-discovery playbook. The seminar, which will be held noon to 2 p.m. at the offices of Bracewell & Giuliani, will cover:
- The importance of a document preservation program and institutionalized e-discovery playbook.
- How to document your measures to establish defensibility in any future sanctions proceeding.
- How to eliminate redundancies, business disruptions and inefficiencies across jurisdictions and subject matters.
- Tips on leveraging smarter review technologies to cut cost and risk while gaining visibility and enhanced reporting.
