Traditional approaches to ediscovery are costly, time-consuming, and unsustainable. In this webinar, our panel of experts will be exploring traditional workflows and present innovative new approaches across various phases of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM).

Whether through technology triage, data mapping and defensible deletion, building your response playbook, or bringing technology in-house — these seasoned professionals will share their wealth of experiences and expertise.

Join this webinar, an encore presentation of a highly popular 2019 PREX Conference break-out session, that will cover:

  • Technology triage – strategies for slowing the proliferation of new discoverable data sources and repositories (fewer haystacks).
  • Building your plan – tips for building a more effective litigation response plan, including formulating standard Electronically Stored Information (ESI) protocols and ediscovery playbooks.
  • Negotiating scope – how Early Case Assessment (ECA), discovery metrics, and project kickoffs yield more proportional outcomes.
  • Phased discovery — from targeted collections to rolling productions to resolving issues faster, at a lower cost and without misuse.
