UHY Advisors’ eDiscovery & Digital Forensics Practice Group today announced that its Managing Director Doug Herman will discuss “Responding to Subpoenas and Challenges Dealing with eDiscovery Issues” at the 2013 Best Practices Forum presented by Lemme.
At the private forum, scheduled for September 12 in Chicago and hosted by Lemme Insurance Group, attendees will be provided invaluable insight from peers and industry experts. Herman, who is joining the discussion with in-house counsel, will draw from more than a decade of pre-litigation, eDiscovery, digital forensics and technical experience to discuss:
• Best practices and practical steps for addressing subpoenas and challenges with eDiscovery issues;
• How to identify the key aspects of a process to address these matters;
• How a data landscape model allows the in-house teams to better understand what data sources exist and focus on what they put on hold in the context of a litigation event;
• The challenges of data retention, including identifying sources and a case study of a company that is successfully controlling it;
• Common internal mistakes committed by CPA/professional service firms and how to minimize the time, effort and costs associated with this;
• Best practices to prepare for eDiscovery before a matter develops.
The session begins at 1:30 pm. EDT and concludes at 2:45 pm. EDT.
