On January 6, 2020, Hannah T. Joseph and Kyle Vieira gave a presentation at the Boston Bar Association on electronic discovery. The program was titled E-Discovery Basics: Who, What, Where, When, WHY!

According to the description of the program, “E-Discovery has become a critical component to any litigation. This program will provide tips and tricks for how to develop an e-discovery strategy, how to engage and manage the vendor relationship, and how to satisfy your discovery obligations.”

Hannah and Kyle recently co-authored an article titled “A Conversation that Every Employer Should Have with Its eDiscovery Vendor.” In their article, Kyle and Hannah offer practical advice to employers about working with eDiscovery vendors.

According to their article, “eDiscovery, which encompasses the collection, preservation, analysis, review, and production of electronically-stored information (ESI), is a necessary and often critical component of litigation. Indeed, eDiscovery is not only expected in most cases, but can also determine litigation strategy and outcomes. Given the sheer volume of potentially-relevant ESI in any given matter, as well as the evolving nature of legal disputes (a ‘small’ matter can quickly balloon into full-blown litigation involving multiple custodians) the appropriate management of eDiscovery is often key to litigating effectively and controlling costs. In most instances, this will mean partnering with the right eDiscovery vendor.”
