Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
iDiscovery Solutions, Inc. (iDS), an award-winning, legal technology expert services firm, is a Premium Sponsor of Today’s General Counsel Institute’s (TGCI) The Exchange multi-city conference. Designed for in-house counsel, The Exchange provides deep understanding and practical advice on the major e-Discovery challenges facing organizations today via ten in-depth, interactive roundtable discussions. iDS Senior Manager Jonathan Karchmer will be a featured panelist at the conference’s Los Angeles stop, December 9-10 at L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills.
Mr. Karchmer, an e-Discovery and digital forensics expert, will be one of the moderators of Session 8 on Day 2: “Cost Control”. The session, which will run from 10:00 am-11:00 am on December 10, will focus on controlling costs throughout the e-Discovery process using the establishment of realistic budgets, development of effective workflows, tracking metrics, and development of a solid project management culture. Joining Mr. Karchmer as moderators are Erin Hiley of Molina Healthcare, David Kessler from Norton Rose, Anthony Knaapen from Chevron, and Robert Singleton from Squire Patton Boggs.
“It’s an honor to be part of the TGCI Los Angeles colloquium,” said Mr. Karchmer. “A key component of e-Discovery projects is cost control, and with good practices there are ways to implement savings on projects of any size. It’s important that project teams understand early decisions may have downstream effects. Our session will discuss cost considerations in project planning that could be applied to “serial” projects that organizations may encounter regularly as well as the one-off projects that arise.”
Mr. Karchmer will be joined at the Los Angeles event by iDS Managing Director Jim Vaughn, a court-recognized e-Discovery and computer forensics expert and head of West Coast operations, and Director Patrick Grobbel, head of Business Development for iDS.
Additional moderators in Los Angeles include leading e-Discovery counsel from Littler, DLA Piper, Fenwick & West, O’Melveny & Myers, Orrick, Cooley, and more. CLE credits are offered for each session.
