Webinar: Trends and Best Practices in E-Discovery Privilege Review

You cannot unring a bell, as the saying goes, and nowhere in e-discovery is that more true than when privileged documents are inadvertently produced to an opposing party. Even if you have a clawback agreement and even if the court enforces that agreement (not a certainty), the damage may already be done.

On Thursday, June 28, at noon Eastern time, Catalyst will present a free webinar, Trends and Best Practices in E-Discovery Privilege Review, presented by three members of the Catalyst Search & Analytics Consulting team. John Hokkanen, director of Search and Analytics Consulting, and senior consultants Jim Eidelman and Ron Tienzo will explore recent e-discovery trends and best practices regarding privileged documents.

Topics will Include:

  • A brief overview of recent court decisions regarding attorney-client waiver issues and best ways to use FRE 502.
  • Best ways to search for potentially privileged documents.
  • Using advanced analytics to identify social networking among in-house counsel, outside counsel, management and others to categorize privileged documents.
  • Creating a privilege log automatically as you review.
  • Best ways to QC for privilege using analytics, sampling, and rule-based software.
