Corporate Counsels’ Guide: Developing a Strategic Approach to Containing the Costs of eDiscovery
Well-positioned on the heels of the G20 Summit in downtown Toronto comes Legal IQ’s (a division of IQPC) conference to assist corporate counsel in curtailing the rising costs of discovery. From June 28th to 30th, e-discovery experts (and those wanting to be in the know) from across North America will meet at the Sheraton Toronto Centre to address this very timely issue.
What is interesting about this conference is its very balanced speaker mix of in-house and external counsel from private and public organizations, judges, and e-discovery vendors, from across both Canada and the United States. Primarily conducted in workshop and panel format, this conference emphasizes a very practical approach to minimizing the costs of e-discovery.
Topics will include:
As a member of the Advisory Board for this conference, our Susan Nickle is co-facilitating a workshop on “Early Case Assessment Strategies and the Pitfalls of Disjointed Collection”.
We’ll keep you posted on key (perhaps contentious?) issues arising at this interesting conference
Last week, the Wortzman Nickle home team travelled to Collingwood for the firm’s retreat.
This annual event gave us the opportunity to re-group, review processes and files, and team-build. Guided by a comprehensive agenda and inspired by the beautiful surroundings, our team has emerged stronger and more efficient than ever.
Key topics of interest? Efficient collection and data processing, lawyer review processes and platforms, plus project management best practices ruled the day. We know that being efficient with processes and reporting keeps files on track, on budget, and clients happy.
In the name of team-building, we took on a “strenuous/advanced” mountain hike in the rain, as well as two yoga classes. There’s nothing like sore muscles, exhaustion, and a few headstands to bring a legal team together.
Things to watch for? Wortzman Nickle’s edgy, innovative, advertising campaign, introduced this Spring and to be continued in the Fall. Some other surprises are in store for our firm…stay tuned.
