New York, NY (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
QuisLex, a premier offshore provider of legal support services, announced today that Andrew Goodman, its Executive Director of Litigation Services, will moderate a panel discussion entitled “Meeting Ethical Responsibilities for Legal Outsourcing” at the upcoming Electronic Discovery Institute (EDI) Leadership Summit in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The panel will take place on October 18, 2012 at 10:20 a.m.
A number of regulatory bodies in the U.S. have issued ethical guidance for attorneys working with external legal support providers. “While QuisLex’s commitment to quality, transparent reporting and security are goals unto themselves, they also serve another purpose – to give the attorneys with whom we work confidence that we are helping them satisfy their ethical obligations,” says Goodman. “In addition, our defensible, reliable processes aid our clients in responding to any objections or challenges from opposing parties that they might face during the discovery process.
The panel of speakers includes Vincent Catanzaro, Senior Counsel and Global Discovery Manager for DuPont Legal; Michael Boland, Managing Director of Drinker Discovery Solutions LLC; and Mike Sieja, Assistant General Counsel for Altria Client Services, Inc. Led by Goodman, they will discuss the latest challenges and solutions facing corporations when outsourcing document reviews and other e-discovery-related work, as well as the most up-to-date ethical rules and considerations governing legal outsourcing. In particular, they will focus on how corporations can improve the efficiency of their workflow and manage risk and costs while still meeting their ethical responsibilities.
The three-day EDI Leadership Summit focuses on large organization decision makers who manage complex legal challenges. The summit offers an opportunity to collaborate with the top minds in the legal technology and information management community while gaining knowledge about evolving technologies and analyzing the latest trends behind cyber security, privacy, internal investigations, pricing, processing and RFPs. This year’s EDI Leadership Summit will be held from October 17 to 19 at the Ritz Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
