E-Discovery Cost Containment: Legal Strategies
Leveraging Economical Litigation Agreements, E-Mediation and Other Emerging Tools
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
Conducted on Thursday, August 19, 2010
Recorded event now available
This CLE webinar will provide counsel with strategies to contain e-discovery costs without sacrificing quality or increasing legal risks or potential court sanctions. The panel will review and evaluate emerging tools and ongoing developments within the legal profession.
To limit litigation costs, counsel must focus on cost containment for e-discovery. Economical litigation agreements can streamline discovery from the outset. E-discovery costs can also be controlled through the use of e-discovery mediators.
Counsel must also be fluent in e-discovery law in order to successfully argue for discovery that is proportionate to the value of the case, limit discovery based on the inaccessibility of ESI, and obtain the cooperation of opposing counsel.
Lawyers, judges, and academics gathered to explore a number of possible solutions to containing the costs of civil litigation and e-discovery at the recent Civil Litigation Conference (Duke Conference), which included discussion of potential Federal Rules of Civil Procedure amendments.
Listen as our authoritative panel of attorneys discusses effective legal strategies to control
e-discovery costs and emerging trends and developments to address this issue.
- Meet and Confer Conference
- Framing the issues and expectations for discovery
- Economical litigation agreements
- E-mediation and special masters
- Preservation and Production

- Technology strategies (processing and deduplication strategy, dealing with vendors)
- Production and post-production litigation support
- Discovery law
- Emerging trends

- 7th Circuit Pilot Program Report
- Model litigation prenup agreement
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- How can economical litigation agreements be used to streamline discovery?
- What developments in e-discovery law can assist counsel in limiting ESI production?
- How can counsel effectively use ADR and e-mediation to control e-discovery costs?
- What proposals are being made for amendments to FRCP to address the soaring cost of e-discovery?
