Electronic Discovery: Beyond the Courtroom

Litigators across Canada and around the world have begun to respond to high profile cases involving the preservation, collection, review and production of electronically stored information (“ESI”). New and emerging rules, standards and guidelines are having a dramatic impact on lawyers as they prepare for discoveries and trial.

This is a high risk area for corporations and law firms: if electronic discovery is not handled correctly and in a legally defensible manner, the consequences for both lawyer and client could be severe.

In this panel presentation, two lawyers with years of experience as legal consultants in electronic discovery will explain and demonstrate the key concepts of electronic discovery; will provide an update on the current status of practice guidelines applicable in Quebec (such as the Sedona Canada Principles), and will outline the many ways in which electronic discovery is important not just for litigators but for lawyers in virtually every area of practice.
