Controlling the Rising Costs of Electronic Discovery in the U.S.

Corporate Breakfast

Speakers:
Edward Flanders, Partner, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP
Jeffrey J. Joyce, Vice President, Kroll Ontrack Consulting
Wayne C. Matus, Partner, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP

The high cost of litigation in the US has continued its meteoric climb because of the electronic discovery of documents. E-Discovery is now 35% of the cost of litigation, and companies that fail to produce emails are facing millions of dollars in sanctions and fines. How can these costs be controlled? How can these risks be reduced? The panelists discuss your discovery obligations, how companies can control their costs by becoming "litigation ready" and how to handle the unique problems associated with having to process and review large amounts of electronically stored information, including Japanese language data.
