Federal Trade Commission, Social Security Administration and Securities and Exchange Commission Discuss Managing the Unique Costs and Challenges of eDiscovery in Government Enforcement at eDiscovery Strategies for Government Summit


NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--

Legal IQ, a division of IQPC (News - Alert), announces the eDiscovery Strategies for Government Summit, being held June 27th-28th, 2011 in Washington, D.C., to manage the unique costs and challenges of eDiscovery in government enforcement of civil and criminal actions.

In today's legal environment, electonically stored information (ESI (News - Alert)) is an inescapable aspect of every litigation and investigation, and attorneys avoid dealing with ESI at the risk of being sanctioned. However, with an understanding of a few core topics, any attorney working under any budget can defensibly handle any eDiscovery issue. eDiscovery Strateies for Government Summit will offer key insights to stay on top of emerging challenges and how to craft thorough, cost-effective and defensible eDiscovery.



Additionally our expert faculty will provide key benefits for government organizations including:

  • The necessary procedures and tools for reducing the time, cost and sheer volume of data whenever litigation matters arise
  • Preservation challenges associated with ephemeral and rapidly changing media formats and storage systems
  • Spoliation sanctions: Addressing the lack of awareness about the importance of e-records and the dangers associated with their loss and spoliation
  • How to achieve collaboration among records managers, archivists, IT specialists and legal to proactively address today's e-discovery issues
  • The interplay between FOIA requests and eDiscovery

Senior Advisor at Enbridge commented on the event: "So many practical, well considered ideas that are immediately applicable."
