About the eDiscovery in MDLs On-Demand Webinar

Even in comparison to other complex litigation, multidistrict litigation matters (MDLs) present distinctive challenges in building and maintaining efficient and effective eDiscovery processes. In this webinar, you’ll hear practical tips and experienced perspectives from a world-class panel of eDiscovery litigators.

During the webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • The unique challenges MDLs pose in establishing reasonable bounds on the scope of preservation and production;
  • The notion of “succession planning” to hedge against the frequent loss of subject matter experts – especially given the extreme duration of many MDLs;
  • The opportunities and risks tied to utilizing centralized document production repositories;
  • The added complexity and long-term impact of negotiating ESI protocols and protective orders in matters that often have numerous sets of plaintiffs and defendants (with differing risks, approaches, objectives even across co-defendants); and
  • The risks and opportunities tied to related parallel matters (regulatory, state AG, JCCP, etc.).
