Our Litigation group also has substantial expertise dealing with electronic discovery disputes. When encountering sophisticated electronic discovery “situations,” we pro-actively advise clients on cost-effective steps to address them. In today’s litigation environment, virtually any litigation involves some element of electronic discovery and requires early attention to e-discovery issues. One of our litigation partners, Mark A. Berman, is a columnist for The New York Law Journal writing on electronic discovery issues. He lectures in this area at law schools and before bar and judicial organizations, and is also a member of the Electronic Discovery Working Group for the New York State Court System. Mark is also Chair of the New York State Bar Association’s newly formed “Technology and the Legal Profession Committee.” In addition, Mr. Berman was the former Co-Chair of the Social Media Committee of the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section of the New York State Bar Association.
