Short of hopping on a plane and attending an expensive
conference, it is rare to get this much in-house participation
on a given topic. We feel fortunate to be a part of this
timely discussion.

Falcon Discovery, the creator of InsideOut,™ a fully integrated, co-sourced solution for managing discovery in-house, is sponsoring a webcast to advance the discussion about how proportionality and cost-shifting can help restore balance and efficiency to the discovery process. Corporate counsel and law firm representatives are offered a final opportunity to register for this groundbreaking webcast, which is scheduled for Wednesday, January 11, 2012 at 12noon MST. Attendees can register here.

Across the legal industry, lawyers and electronic discovery professionals are cautiously walking the line to ensure that eDiscovery burdens are proportional to the issues in dispute and the amount in controversy. With ample support for principles of proportionality, however, there remains wide spread confusion about where to draw the line between burden and value to determine the optimal balance in discovery. At the same time cost-shifting is receiving more and more attention from the courts, and this can be a viable means of recouping significant e-discovery costs.

Falcon Discovery has enlisted a team of prominent in-house and outside counsel to share their insights and strategies on how best to navigate the murky waters around proportionality and cost-shifting. Falcon’s founder and CEO, Don McLaughlin, will be joined on the webcast by:

o     Emily Pastorius, Assistant General Counsel at Teletech
o    Annie Kao, Senior Litigation Counsel at Vail Resorts
o    Chris Sullivan, Senior Corporate eDiscovery Counsel at CenturyLink
o    Lauren Schmidt, Shareholder at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck

The panelists will tackle some of the vexing issues concerning proportionality and cost-shifting, including how best to apply a proportionality analysis in response to requests for production and the collection and review activities triggered by those requests. “Short of hopping on a plane and attending an expensive conference, it is rare to get this much in-house participation on a given topic. We feel fortunate to be a part of this timely discussion,” said Don McLaughlin, Falcon’s founder and CEO.

CLE CREDIT: This webinar is pending MCLE accreditation from the State Bar of Colorado. Falcon Discovery will alert attendees upon CLE approval and provide credit information retroactively.
