In May, Logikcull released a new case study detailing how Baker Donelson maximized client value through a new, powerfully simple approach to eDiscovery. Next week, we’ll be diving into that process in even greater detail, with the firm leaders who helped drive the change. Click here to save your spot.



Long before the current health and economic crises forced other firms’ hands, Baker Donelson was proactively laying the groundwork for a new approach to eDiscovery. With the Am Law 100 firm’s core standard of “clients first” at the center of this transformation, the firm sought to empower its attorneys and support staff with more autonomy over the eDiscovery process, to lower overall costs for clients, to speed access to data by trial teams, and to lower internal overhead and support needs.

Well over a year later, the firm has not only achieved those goals, but surpassed initial expectations. The results of this transformation have been “beyond our initial expectations and any projections we had,” according to Clinton Sanko, Baker Donelson shareholder and the firm’s eDiscovery officer.

Join us Wednesday, July 8th, for an in-depth look at just how Baker Donelson’s new approach to discovery began and how it has played out. Attend this webinar to learn:

  • Why Baker Donelson decided to reimagine its eDiscovery approach and what steps it took to find the best solutions
  • What strategies powered the firm’s success in implementing this new approach
  • How resource allocation, cost savings, user adoption, and time-to-data have been impacted by the firm’s new approach
  • Why eDiscovery is now “a non-event” in so many of the firm’s cases
