November 18, 2019

Not long ago, e-discovery was just another step in the litigation process. Today, it plays an outsized role, as the amount and type of information stored electronically by parties to litigation has grown exponentially.

Modern litigators must be able to quickly understand where and how a wide range of documents and other files (from cell phone data to instant messages to video and audio recordings) are stored. And they must have the ability to adequately search, collect, review and make use of this information.

Successful law firm e-discovery practices combine sophisticated legal and technical expertise that bears scant resemblance to what was required even a decade ago. In this roundtable discussion, three lawyers with deep expertise in the field explore how e-discovery came to become a standalone practice area and what the future holds for this vibrant niche.
