Over the past year, there has been a steady stream of examples of eDiscovery productions gone wrong. Disasters like the botched production that saw an attorney for Wells Fargo hand over sensitive, confidential information on some of the bank’s wealthiest clients—without redactions, without a protective order in place, and to a party that promptly took the documents to the New York Times. Or the attorneys whose privilege review failed to catch the vast majority of privileged documents, documents that were then turned over to the opposing party twice, destroying any protection established by their earlier clawback agreement.
Thankfully, you can learn from these career-damaging errors rather than repeat them yourself. To help, Logikcull recently hosted a webinar on how to avoid eDiscovery production disasters. Featuring Mike Simon, attorney and principal at Seventh Samurai, and Scott Borrowman, senior attorney at Redgrave LLP, the webinar surveyed recent case law (and New York Times headlines) related to waiver and sanctions arising from production failures, techniques for avoiding inadvertent disclosure of privileged files, and best practices for securely producing discovery files to opposing parties.
If you missed the webinar, or want to revisit it again, you can find a recording of the event below, as well as a copy of the presentation slides.
