[Webinar] The Trajectory of Remote E-Discovery in 2022

December 3rd, 8:00 am - 9:00 am PT


December 3rd, 2021
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PT

Join legal industry analyst Ari Kaplan, Eric Crawley, Epiq’s managing director for global advanced solutions, Seth Eichenholtz, Director of eDiscovery at Mastercard, and Lora Ramsey, eDiscovery Manager at Walmart for a discussion about the current state of electronic discovery within corporate legal departments and the future of remote options in a post-pandemic environment.

Kaplan will reveal – and the panel will discuss – findings from the Epiq-commissioned report based on the perspectives of 30 leading corporate legal eDiscovery professionals about the challenges, tactics, and best practices fueling change in this sector. Eighty-seven percent of the respondents reported that they handle some document review processes with support from their outside counsel. Sixty-three percent also utilize alternative legal services providers (ALSPs). With the near-universal deployment of remote reviewers during the pandemic, only 10 percent of the respondents reported seeing disadvantages. For many organizations, the document review process involves a combination of resources and is often driven by cost and risk.

One respondent told us:

“We want the lowest cost resource that offers the highest quality work, which is not always the outside law firm.”

If you answer yes to any of these questions, this webinar is for you:

  • How can my firm make the most informed decisions about our document review processes given the new wide acceptance of remote work?

  • Should our litigation and investigative teams work with alternative legal service providers to conduct remote review? What are the benefits?

  • What do our clients, namely corporate e-discovery professionals, think about remote review and the role of law firms in the process?
