What Do You Focus On?

I focus on how technology can enhance legal expertise to streamline litigation and government investigations. I guide clients in getting e-discovery done quickly and efficiently.

Leveraging over 10 years of experience working on complex litigation and government investigations, I collaborate with attorneys and clients to create and execute e-discovery project plans through all phases of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM). I’ve developed tools and procedures to assist with meeting the requirements of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) regarding electronically stored information (ESI).

Our clients from industries such as health care, finance and technology require cost-effective strategies for identifying and preserving ESI. I work with attorneys to develop defensible strategies that reduce review time and pinpoint highly relevant documents. Using tools such as technology-assisted review (TAR) we reduce overwhelming data volumes to precise data sets that subject matter experts can use to build their case.

What do you see on the horizon?

The rise of technology-assisted review (TAR) and data analytics continues to transform the litigation process. Increasingly sophisticated tools will allow legal teams to sift through enormous volumes of data efficiently and quickly focus on highly relevant data.
