E-Discovery

Among the first plaintiffs’ firms in the country to assemble and train a dedicated team to meet the e-discovery demands of complex litigation, Milberg has developed e-discovery capabilities that are exceptional among U.S. law firms.  Established nearly 10 years ago, Milberg’s e-discovery practice has grown extensively and today offers clients the ability to go toe-to-toe with adversaries in the fast-evolving e-discovery climate.  This multidisciplinary group offers clients a full array of counsel services relating to discovery strategy, data preservation, data collection and storage, sophisticated data search and analysis, production, and computer forensic investigation, as well as training on e-discovery issues, including application of the recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, local rules, and state law.

The Firm’s e-discovery practice is led by partner Ariana J. Tadler.  One of the most respected e-discovery practitioners in the field, Ms. Tadler is Chair Emeritus and continues to be an active member of The Sedona Conference® Steering Committee for Working Group I on Electronic Document Retention and Production, the preeminent “think tank” on e‑Discovery.  She also serves on the Advisory Boards of Georgetown University Law Center’s Advanced E-Discovery Institute, Bloomberg BNA’s eDiscovery Resource Center, and Cardozo’s Data Law Initiative (for which she is currently serving as the Executive Director).

Milberg’s e-discovery practice is further supported by a state-of-the-art e-discovery infrastructure, which it developed, and in November 2015 spun off, leading to the establishment of Meta-e Discovery LLC.  Milberg’s former Chief Discovery Officer, Paul McVoy, is the Managing Director of Meta-e. Ms. Tadler is a Principal in Meta-e.

Milberg works with Meta-e to offer clients one of the most advanced e-discovery document review tools on the market, Relativity™.  Relativity™ combines traditional review capabilities with advanced search and coding options to improve document discovery review efficiency and accuracy.  Adding to that functionality, Relativity Analytics™ are available to group related documents and data, apply a statistically valid subset of coding across an entire database, and search in English across documents written in other languages.

With access to these unique resources, Milberg can meet even the largest and most complex challenges involving electronically stored information, and provide the counsel required to navigate the legal issues from the simplest to the most complex.
