Protect Your Company's Reputation with Technology & Best Practices in Today's Complex E-Discovery Environment

Kevin Clem | May 05, 2015

Bobbi Basile recently participated on a distinguished webcast panel exploring how standardizing e-discovery processes supported by metrics, role clarity and technology can protect a company's brand while also reducing its legal spend.  According to Exterro's 2015 Federal Judges Survey on E-Discovery Best Practices and Trends, many legal professionals need significant improvement in the area of e-discovery. Not only do many legal teams lack the knowledge to adequately advise on e-discovery issues, they open up their clients or organizations to unnecessary risks, increased legal spend and reputational harm. To prevent mistakes from being made, legal directors and inside counsel need a strategy for aligning the various stakeholders (clerks, paralegals, attorneys, service providers and law firms) and putting in place the right checks and balances to mitigate e-discovery dangers.

The webcast can be viewed on demand here:

The panelists co-authored a white paper entitled, "Why Legal Directors Are Bringing E-Discovery In House”exploring reasons legal directors are insourcing e-discovery and provides best practices for optimizing e-discovery processes.
