General Counsel are faced with the never-ending challenge of controlling both risk and cost. Without the right people, processes or infrastructure, this is a formidable task.
San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
SFL Data, the first provider of a fixed-price e-discovery managed service, will discuss the advantages of managed electronic discovery services at the 2012 Chief Legal Officer Leadership Forum on May 3 in San Francisco, as a Senior Supporter Partner. Organized by the Argyle Executive Forum, this invitation-only event will host nearly 200 General Counsel from the San Francisco Bay Area, including Michelle Banks (Gap), Chris Ekren (Sony Electronics, Inc.) and Alexandra Ross (Wal-Mart Stores). SFL Data CEO Christian Lawrence will attend the forum, along with General Counsel and Discovery Consultant Eamonn Markham. The event will host a series of panel discussions designed to help general counsel address issues of corporate governance, vendor relationships, litigation cost management, brand protection in a global marketplace and more.
“General Counsel are faced with the never-ending challenge of controlling both risk and cost. Without the right people, processes or infrastructure, this is a formidable task. This event presents a fantastic opportunity for legal executives to learn more about our managed e-discovery service that’s proven so beneficial for Oracle,” said Lawrence.
Both Lawrence and Markham have extensive experience interfacing with general counsel on the topic of e-discovery management. Specifically, SFL Data is Oracle’s exclusive e-discovery service provider delivering end-to-end litigation support based on a consultative, metrics-driven approach. By using an outside firm, Oracle has realized significant e-discovery cost savings and is able to keep litigation data isolated while mitigating risk and increasing defensibility.
