We have extensive experience managing the complex discovery issues that arise when lawsuits with similar allegations are filed in multiple jurisdictions across the country. We are up-to-date (and in the fray) on the emerging issues and technology associated with the preservation, collection, and review of electronically-stored information (ESI). Our litigation management practice group assists clients in:
- formulating a national defense strategy;
- preserving, collecting and reviewing information that is potentially responsive to discovery requests and information that supports the client’s position and strategy;
- creating electronically searchable databases and, in the process, identifying information protected by law from disclosure to third-parties;
- protecting trade secrets and commercially-sensitive proprietary information by obtaining and enforcing protective orders and redaction of core trade secret information;
- tracking the dissemination of proprietary information when courts allow discovery and collecting that information at the conclusion of the case;
- coordinating with trial counsel to ensure that consistent litigation strategies are employed and that all discovery responses and legal arguments are consistent, accurate and complete; and
- avoiding unnecessary costs by maintaining a database of legal memoranda, maintaining online dockets and calendars and communicating constantly with the client and trial counsel.
