Ethics and eDiscovery: Implementing Cost Effective Strategies to Avoid Being Sanctioned or Sued

9:45 – 10:45 a.m.

“…attorney competence related to litigation generally requires, among other things, and at a minimum, a basic understanding of, and facility with, issues relating to eDiscovery, including the discovery of electronically stored information (“ESI”)…” See ABA Model Rules of Conduct for eDiscovery

Courts expect attorneys to actively supervise and understand the management and production of electronically stored information (“ESI”) from start to finish. Changes in the rules of civil procedure and professional conduct ascribe a duty on attorneys to understand and manage the collection and production of ESI, no matter how technical.

Ms. Thompson’s presentation will identify the 3 common areas where lawyers and their firms fall short in their ethical duties in the eDiscovery process (as identified in recent case law and ethics opinions) and provide practical tips and tools for avoiding sanctions and costly mistakes.
