Kantrow and Waters Present E-discovery Seminar to 100 Claims and Underwriting Personnel

Date: May 2, 2012

On April 24, 2012 members of the e-Discovery practice, Jason Waters (Partner-McLean), presented a seminar entitled "Ethics & Current Trends in E-Discovery” to 100 claims and underwriting personnel. The presentation covered electronically stored information (ESI) from underwriting, defense and coverage perspectives and included a discussion of the latest trends in: (1) preservation and spoliation; (2) the search for and production of documents; (3) preservation of privilege and confidential client information; and (4) the duty to supervise contract attorneys and vendors.

Mr. Waters has substantial national experience handling mass tort and complex commercial cases. He is one of the attorneys leading the defense of a major transit authority in the federal investigation and numerous personal injury cases arising from the collision of two commuter trains in Washington, D.C. During that case, Mr. Waters coordinated the review and production of a major collection of ESI from numerous custodians. As a member of our firm's e-Discovery practice group, Mr. Waters was the lead author of the 2012 ESI Case Law Update. Mr. Waters is a member of the Sedona Conference Working Group 1 on Electronic Document Retention and Production.

This committee's mission is to develop pre-trial litigation principles governing electronic discovery to reduce its cost and burden, so that prohibitive costs associated with e-discovery do not influence clients' litigation decisions.
