The Case For Cooperation in Electronic Discovery

Closeup of business people standing

For the last scheduled show in 2009, Karl Schieneman, Director of Legal Analytics and Review with JurInnov will moderate a discussion between three noteworthy advocates for better cooperation in electronic discovery. If you have ever wondered how cooperation fits into the litigation world, this is a show for you to listen to. Each of the participants sits in different roles in the electronic discovery process and we will explore cooperation principles from their differing perspectives which come to similar conclusions. If both sides do not cooperate on discovery matters when there is substantial ESI involved, all parties run the risk of losing. The outstanding panel we have assembled are The Honorable Andrew Peck from the Southern District of New York, Maura Grossman with the defense oriented law firm of Wachtell Lipton and leading plaintiff E-Discovery lawyer Bill Butterfield with the global claimant law firm Hausfield, LLP.

The Honorable Andrew Peck from the Southern District of New York is a well known national speaker in electronic discovery and authored two outstanding opinions on search process – Anti-Monopoly, Inc. v. Hasbro, Inc., 1995 WL 649934 (S.D.N.Y. 1995) and William A. Gross Construction Associates, Inc. v. American Manufacturers Mutual Insurance Co. 07 Civ. 10639 (LAK)(AJP) (March 19, 2009).

Maura Grossman is a defense lawyer from the New York business law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz where she focuses her practice on advising lawyers and clients on electronic discovery and information management, both domestically and internationally. She is also the coordinator for the 2010 Legal Track of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Text REtreival Conference, better known as TREC.

Bill Butterfield is a partner with Hausfield, LLP, a global claimants law firm and is also a national speaker in electronic discovery and has put together electronic document management solutions since the early 1990’s in multi million page cases before people were even talking about Terrabytes and Pedabytes of information.
