About this event

Modern Musings and Present-Day Pitfalls for Protocols – Things We Didn’t Have to Consider 5 Years Ago

In some ways, the current day challenges with ESI Protocols are the same as they’ve been for years – counsel is hesitant to address eDiscovery issues and resolve them early in the matter. On the other hand, there are new and unique data types and file formats popping up everywhere that are difficult to navigate.

What’s the best way to oversee information governance with Microsoft 365? What’s the best approach to collecting and parsing text messages from mobile devices? What’s the most efficient and effective means of combing through social media channels for relevant communications? Join us for an engaging and practical panel discussion regarding modern-day protocols, how to request the data you need, and avoid agreeing to unreasonable ESI discovery requests.

Join us on April 18, 2024, for a lively and engaging panel discussion!
