DISCOVERY AND DATA MANAGEMENT GROUP
We have a dedicated group to deal with discovery (including e-discovery) and data management, which has become a major aspect of litigation and disputes, in order to effectively manage the costs and client time involved. We also utilise the group for “big data” projects across all other practice areas of the firm.
Richard Willis and Keith Smith, two of our Litigation and Dispute Resolution Partners, lead the eDiscovery Group. Richard is a member of the Commercial Litigation Association of Ireland (“CLAI”) sub-committee which drafted the widely endorsed Good Practice Discovery Guide. The sub-committee has also been tasked with preparing recommendations for the reform of the Irish Rules of the Superior Courts in order to make the discovery process in the High Court less expensive and more efficient. Both Richard and Keith are frequent speakers and contributors to eDiscovery events.
