O’Melveny partner Jeffrey Fowler will speak at PLI’s Electronic Discovery Institute 2017: What Corporate and Outside Counsel Need to Know scheduled for September 18, 2017, in New York.
The demands and costs of ediscovery in litigation continue to grow. Nearly every case now involves some sort of ediscovery, and it is essential to know how to effectively and fairly handle the many issues that can arise. Experienced lawyers, judges, and ediscovery professionals will provide an inside look at the current state of ediscovery, give tips for avoiding pitfalls litigants have encountered in the years since the passage of the federal rules, and discuss important ethical issues in light of court decisions imposing discovery sanctions and outlining the duties of outside and in-house counsel.
This seminar is designed to provide counsel with the understanding necessary to advise clients on state, federal, and international ediscovery strategic and technology issues.
Topics to be discussed:
- Update on the latest legal developments in ediscovery
- Hear from judges, in-house counsel, outside counsel, and others facing the myriad of ediscovery issues that can arise in litigation
- Gain the perspectives of experienced ediscovery attorneys who have encountered problems similar to those your clients will likely face
- Get practical tips for conducting efficient and defensible discovery in the electronic age
- Learn why sanctions are imposed for ediscovery violations and how you can avoid similar issues
