Spencer Fane attorneys Cynthia Rowe and Leslie Witterschein recently published an article featured in the ACC Docket, highlighting the importance of advanced planning in eDiscovery matters.
Titled “eDiscovery Predictability in an Unpredictable World,” the article outlines best practices to lower legal spend, boost objectives, and increase predictability in eDiscovery litigation. Cynthia and Leslie emphasized that open and data-driven conversations amongst in-house and outside counsel can lead to the desired outcome.
