Many litigators assume that electronic discovery applies only to major lawsuits involving multi-national corporations and vast repositories of electronic documents. They associate ediscovery with huge costs, large teams of expensive attorneys, and deep in-house technical resources. But today, virtually every corporation is likely to possess electronic evidence that is potentially subject to discovery. Even a small dispute is likely to involve electronically-stored information. And even the smallest law firm will sometimes be faced with the need to conduct eDiscovery. Further, even large corporations and large law firms often have small matters that must be handled economically. The modern litigator therefore must know how to conduct "affordable eDiscovery." The litigator must satisfy the requirements of the rules of procedure while keeping the discovery budget proportionate to the amount in dispute. This seminar will explore the use of eDiscovery in civil litigation in three scenarios: - The litigation matter that does not justify a large discovery budget; - The litigation client that does not have a large discovery budget; - The law firm that does not have large in-house resources for eDiscovery. The seminar will present methods for implementing smaller-scale eDiscovery techniques to address these lower-budget scenarios.
