This program will explore the eDiscovery process from beginning to end and how to navigate the daily challenges of eDiscovery in litigation. It will address issues such as document retention, collection, review and production. The discussion will also cover how best to avoid eDiscovery pitfalls, such as spoliation claims, inadvertent productions, and claims of discovery abuse.
Join Matthew Plant and David J. Butler for a discussion of these issues. Mr. Plant and Mr. Butler are New York City-based Principals of the firm Bressler, Amery & Ross, P.C. They focus their practices in securities litigation.
Matt Plant focuses in securities litigation and regulatory law. He has appeared on behalf of corporate and institutional clients in federal and state courts in New York and New Jersey, and at arbitrations before various self-regulatory organizations. He also represents individual registered representatives and corporate clients in connection with self-regulatory organizations and state investigations and inquiries.
Over the past years, Matt has personally witnessed product failures that have resulted in complex litigation for his clients. These failures have included hedge funds and structured products, among other examples. Matt is highly adept in guiding his clients beyond such obstacles and in overcoming financial product specific litigation claims.
Because Matt understands how financial products and services are structured and managed, his ability to work with witnesses involved in litigation claims is highly developed, and frequently a competitive edge for his clients. Often in partnership with in-house counsel, Matt has worked with his clients to ensure that such matters are handled in a consistent fashion and as efficiently as possible, never losing sight of achieving a positive result.
Matt is also a member of Bressler's Senior Issues: Counseling and Litigation Defense group. The lawyers in this group have a shared interest in providing counsel to corporate clients who confront issues affecting seniors.
David J. Butler’s practice is primarily devoted to securities litigation, securities arbitration, and securities enforcement proceedings. He also has significant experience with commercial litigation and business disputes.
The securities litigation matters David undertakes include representation of financial institutions and their employees in diverse matters before state and federal courts, and self-regulatory industry organizations.
In addition, David co-chairs Bressler’s E-Discovery and Cybersecurity practice group and is a Certified E-Discovery Specialist (CEDS) through the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists. He regularly works with clients on the establishment and deployment of effective e-discovery policies and protocols and advises clients on developments in the field. He also advises clients in a variety of industries on information security and data privacy and counsels businesses on best practices in the area.
The main takeaway from the program is that e-discovery is a specialty like Bankruptcy and Admiralty law and lawyers not versed in it should bring in an outside specialist.
