Advanced Discovery, an e-discovery company, plans to attend and hopes to see everyone at Booth #41.
Succeeding in Catastrophic Cases
On Monday, April 2, the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists General Session topic offers information on succeeding in catastrophic cases. Join speakers John Bagby, Steve Fernelius, Ervin Gonzalez and Jeff Jacobson as they explain how cases like BP Oil, Penn State and Siemens rely heavily on electronic discovery. The experts will provide information about preservation strategy, litigation notices, cloud accounts, personal email and many other aspects of e-discovery that affect catastrophic cases that spawn legal action. Cases that involve environmental disasters, extensive child abuse or corporate corruption often rely on mounds of electronic documents for both sides of the case. This panel, moderated by Charles Intriago and Helen Bergman Moure, should be on every conference member’s “must-attend” list.
Cutting Malpractice Costs and Preventing Risks
Join speakers Rafael Bernardino, Noah Lang, Al Lindsay and Nancy Stupriach as the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists present “E-Discovery Malpractice – Preventing the New Risk Lawyers Face,” as the General Session on Tuesday, April 3. Moderated by Robert Hilson and Charles Intriago, this session will explain how new e-discovery duties and penalties have created a new challenge for lawyers and e-discovery companies alike. The session will cover how to control risk, the best processes to limit malpractice and how to protect reputations if a claim is filed against a firm.

This general session, moderated by Robert Hilson and Charles Intriago, features speakers John Barkett, Rafael Bernardino, Andrea Gibson and John Upchurch offering advice on safeguarding careers and reputations when it comes to the new challenges e-discovery has created.
