Dennis Kiker – LeClairRyan

Practice/Organization Description

Dennis Kiker combines litigation experience and a business process background to help clients reduce time, cost and risk

LeClairRyan’s Discovery Solutions Practice (DSP) at LeClairRyan is different, and, in this case, different really is good. Dennis Kiker is a key example of that difference. Dennis joined DSP as a partner in April of this year after spending two years as Director of Consulting for Fios, Inc., the Portland, Oregon based e-discovery company. Prior to Fios, Dennis spent fourteen years as a litigator. Though his practice was primarily in the products liability arena, his true focus was discovery. Dennis served as national discovery counsel for a number of Fortune 500 and smaller companies, managing all aspects of discovery response and representing clients in courts across the country. Dennis was also an early entrant into the e-discovery discussion, having provided testimony to the Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure as it contemplated the changes in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that would come into effect in December, 2006. Before entering the practice of law, Dennis spent 11 years in the computer and semiconductor manufacturing industries, working for Intel and Digital Equipment Corporation where he gained invaluable business process experience as a Process Engineer and Production Planner.

Today, Dennis combines his extensive experience as a practicing litigator with his knowledge of business process to help corporations reduce the time, cost and risk associated with information governance and discovery response. Effective records management and discovery response requires the right balance of people, process and technology implemented in a manner suited to the particular organization’s culture, business needs and risk tolerance. Managing a multi-disciplinary team of legal and information systems consultants, Dennis uses defined methods to evaluate and assess current records management and discovery response practices and recommend practical solutions to identified gaps between current and best practices. It is a different approach, recognizing that our clients need business solutions, not just legal strategies.
