BakerHostetler is one of the world’s largest users and providers of discovery services in litigation and investigations. Our E-Discovery Advocacy and Management practice was built on the understanding that modern discovery in complex litigation creates specialized advocacy opportunities in addition to litigation support challenges.
BakerHostetler arms seasoned litigators and litigation support specialists, who have expertise in both the law and process of electronic discovery, with advanced technology and tools to manage discovery consistently, defensibly, and efficiently through the life cycle of a single engagement or across multiple engagements.
Our team members contribute to the work of The Sedona Conference, Georgetown Advanced E-Discovery Institute, and multiple publications including Electronic Evidence: Law and Practice (ABA Section of Litigation, 2d Ed. 2008), E-Discovery and Data Privacy: A Practical Guide (Kluwer Law Int’l 2011), and The Sedona Conference Commentary on Proportionality in Electronic Discovery (Fall 2010).
Whether we are supporting a client’s sophisticated in-house e-discovery program or managing the discovery process for a client that has never before had to think about electronic discovery, our approach is the same: advocate and manage a proportional, defensible, and sensible discovery process to keep litigation focused on the merits rather than the discovery process.
