Only 98 Days Until E-Discovery Day! It’s Never Too Early to Start Planning How You’ll Celebrate

One of the main themes that came out of Exterro's 2016 Judges Survey was that e-discovery competency was significantly lacking amongst attorneys and other e-discovery practitioners. As one attorney put it, “Litigators tend to be people with high confidence, and too often they think if they don't understand something it must not be that important. They view E-Discovery as akin to janitorial work – a skill neither difficult or prestigious." But E-Discovery is a complex process that, like anything that's done well, requires education and training. When that process... Read More

We lose things. Keys, phones, remotes. And sometimes, when we can’t find them, there are consequences—some bigger than others. Corporate legal teams are no different when it comes to e-discovery. Either they produce the sought after data on their own or face punishment for spoliation—sometimes costing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a single case.

Organizations often respond to these events by recycling old systems, deleting email... Read More

Since James Gillray, English printmaker and the father of the political cartoon, started lampooning the French Revolution, King George III of England, and other figures of his time, editorial cartoons have continued to take on politics, business, and scandal; and often, it's these caricatures – sometimes even more so than traditional journalism – that capture our attention and aid our understanding of complex issues, sometimes even more than straightforward reporting or analysis. So we thought, “Why not E-Discovery?" The Exterro creative team put together... Read More
