Washington, D.C.-based Wendy Butler Curtis (pictured below) is e-discovery of counsel and chair of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe’s eDiscovery Working Group, says her Feb. 5 panel “will look at how technology is changing the way we collect, cull and review potentially responsive information–as well as the way federal and local rules are impacting the process.” Curtis. She will be joined by Lynn Looby, former managing counsel at The Dow Chemical Company; Eli Nelson, of counsel at McKenna Long & Aldridge; and Emily Cobb, associate and senior discovery attorney at Ropes & Gray for “The E-Discovery Pulse: Metrics You Need to Know,” sponsored by Kroll Ontrack, 2:00-to-3:15 p.m. Dean Hager, Kroll’s president and chief executive officer, will moderate the discussion.
The group will examine key developments in the area, using a plethora of data pulled from recent matters, Curtis said. Metric discussions will include the average number of custodians per matter, percentage of data processed that is email and the average number of produced gigabytes, she said. “While technology is a major factor today, more and more courts are establishing local rules and protocols which I believe are creating a foundation of understanding for best practices in e-discovery that will benefit both large and small matters.”
Changes at the court level will increase the likelihood that parties will focus on cases at the beginning, which generally leads to risk and cost controls, she predicts. “In the long run, I think it will be these rules and protocols that will have the broadest impact.”
