RenewData, a kCura® Best in Service Relativity Premium Hosting Partner and leading provider of review acceleration and media restoration solutions, today announced that its president has joined LegalTech West Coast’s prestigious line-up of legal technology speakers. On May 22 at 2:45 pm PT, Rich Cohen will present “Sensible eDiscovery: Complying with Requirements without Breaking the Bank (or Your Back!)”
Electronic discovery can be like a “ticking time bomb” that can rapidly deplete litigation budgets. Information that formerly was paper-based (such as records and communications) continues to migrate to electronic formats, contributing to an estimated 210 billion messages sent every day. Combined with the new technologies for electronic collaboration and record keeping that are being developed and adopted each day, and electronic data demands in cases are bigger than ever. It is no surprise that the costs associated with collecting, reviewing and producing electronic evidence is the number one litigation-related burden for attorneys and general counsel.
In his session, Cohen will examine how to expedite the analysis of data to allow for quicker and more informed legal and business decisions. He will also illustrate how to put a sensible eDiscovery plan in place that covers all the issues of preservation, collection, processing, review and production of electronic records in a manner that is both defensible and cost-effective.
Each year, Legal Tech West Cost attracts thousands of law firm and corporate legal professionals looking to stay on top of industry trends and changes to improve law practice management.
