If you don’t work as an interdisciplinary e-discovery team, you will likely lose the game of e-discovery. You will make mistakes and get sanctioned, or pay too much, or both. Lawyers need to work with IT, techs, and others to do e-discovery right. But that is not enough. Even if you have a team, if your team doesn’t cooperate with the opposing players, or at least try to and go to the referee if they refuse, you may still lose. Teamwork and cooperation are the first two of the three pillars of e-discovery. The third is metrics and technology. You can probably avoid sanctions without the third pillar, but not high costs, and so you may win, but your client will still lose. This week in the eleven minute video below (yes, I know, it’s a minute too long) I explain the first two pillars of e-discovery. Next week I’ll tackle the third.
