9:00 a.m. - 9:50 a.m. -- Emerging Issues in Electronic Discovery and Evidence Speakers: Rachel See, of the National Labor Relations Board and Dennis Kiker, Independent eDiscovery ConsultantElectronic discovery horror stories often make the legal news, and many attorneys have heard how electronic discovery missteps can result in sanctions and lost cases. Even though many e-discovery “war stories” focus on large cases involving terabytes of data and hundreds of custodians, these issues are also appearing in smaller cases, including typical employment litigation. In these smaller cases, e-discovery issues might be extremely important and could potentially impact the likelihood of success on the merits, or they might be an unwelcome distraction. Through vignettes and practical advice, seasoned e-discovery professionals Rachel See and Dennis Kiker will help you understand how to manage eDiscovery in small cases, instead of letting eDiscovery manage you. Among other things, you will learn to think strategically about eDiscovery risks and costs, manage expectations of your client, opposing counsel and the Court about the reasonable scope of discovery; defensibly identify, preserve and collect relevant information; identify and prepare witnesses on eDiscovery; and leverage eDiscovery offensively to help your case. Rachel See, the Lead Technology Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, and Dennis Kiker, an independent eDiscovery consultant will discuss these strategies. Rachel See previously served as outside eDiscovery counsel to numerous Fortune 500 companies as the head of the electronic discovery and litigation technology practice group at Williams Mullen in Richmond, Virginia and as an associate in the eDiscovery practice group at Seyfarth Shaw in Chicago. Dennis Kiker has also managed discovery nationally for Fortune 500 and smaller companies by preparing discovery response programs and working with organizations to implement them.Gwenlynn W.
