  • Practice Guide
    • When the Game is Afoot: eDiscovery Investigations – The majority of eDiscovery work takes place in the context of litigation, but a significant amount of it takes place instead in the context of investigations, where time pressure can be greater and bad actors may work against your efforts. In this practice guide, we discuss eDiscovery investigation issues, including: the need for speed and secrecy, the challenges of nuanced analysis and review, the importance of preparing for later litigation, and challenges created by modern technology.
  • White Paper
    • Gone Viral: Social Media in eDiscovery, Updated July 2018 – Newly updated for 2018, this white paper explores the technical and legal challenges presented by social media in eDiscovery and the ways those challenges can be met, including: what sources there are, what data they actually have, how it can be preserved and collected, how it can be authenticated for admission as evidence, and what other issues it raises.
  • Educational Webinar
    • Trending: Social Media in eDiscovery – Also newly updated for 2018, this program explores the technical and legal challenges presented by social media and the ways those challenges can be met, including: what sources there are, what data they actually have, how it can be preserved and collected, how it can be authenticated for admission as evidence, and what other issues it raises.
