LOS ANGELES, CA - September 23, 2009 - O'Melveny & Myers counsel Jeffrey Fowler has accepted a position on the Board of Governors for The Organization of Legal Professionals (OLP).  OLP is a non-profit association with a mission to create higher levels of quality legal services and products and to advancing the career development of legal professionals throughout the world.


The OLP was established to form global standards for e-discovery and other professionals through collaboration, education and certification.  “eDiscovery is the heart of my law practice,” said Fowler.  “OLP’s commitment to upgrading the standards of resources and skills involved in the eDiscovery process and in other legal services is something that I am excited to be a part of.”  


Fowler will be one of 14 members sitting on the Board of Governors, comprised of lawyers, judges, law school professors, consultants, and vendors.  Members of the OLP include top-level professionals:  lawyers, judges, e-discovery managers, technicians, paralegals, case managers, litigation support managers, administrators, vendors, software developers, consultants, and others


Fowler is a member of O’Melveny’s Class Actions, Mass Torts, and Aggregated Litigation Practice. He is also one of the founders and leaders of the Firm’s Electronic Discovery and Document Retention Practice.  He is one of the few litigators in the country whose litigation practice is entirely dedicated to electronic discovery issues.  His extensive experience spans a decade and includes some of history’s first and largest electronic discovery matters.


“We are thrilled about Jeff’s decision to join the OLP’s Board of Governors,” said Chere Estrin, Chairperson of OLP’s Board of Directors. “His enthusiasm and vast e-discovery experience will be of great value to the organization and to the legal professionals who will benefit from our mission.  He is a welcome addition to our team.”
