Wortzman Nickle Law Firm Launches Canadian E-Discovery Blog

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2009) - Wortzman Nickle, Canada's first law firm to focus on electronic discovery ("e-discovery"), is pleased to announce the launch of its e-discovery blog at http://www.WortzmanNickle.com/ediscovery-blog/ to better address the impact of e-discovery on Canadian litigation.

New protocols, including changes and advancements in technology, have dramatically changed the legal process of electronic discovery and disclosure. "Indeed, more than globalization or demographic shifts, e-discovery is the area lawyers feel will have the biggest impact on the practice of law over the next five years." (Canadian Lawyer Magazine, March 2008).

E-discovery involves the preservation, identification, collection, processing, review and production of electronically stored information in preparation for litigation, mediation, arbitration, regulatory investigation or audit. While the discovery process can be complex, expensive and intimidating when you're in the middle of litigation, Wortzman Nickle is committed to an efficient and cost-effective approach to litigation management and litigation readiness. Wortzman Nickle ensures that organizations, together with their management and IT professionals, meet their e-discovery obligations with confidence.

Wortzman Nickle works with law firms, large and small, and their clients, to manage all aspects of e-discovery. The firm provides advice on matters that range from huge multi-national pieces of litigation involving terabytes of information, to ongoing advice on smaller cases where relatively small quantities of electronically stored information are at issue. Additionally, Wortzman Nickle assists law firms and companies of all sizes with the drafting and implementation of records management policies and protocols, and litigation readiness plans.

Wortzman Nickle is actively involved in various IT and legal conferences, presenting free workshops and developing industry standards. There is "a rallying cry for innovation in Canadian courtrooms and justice systems" (Law Times, 2008.) In response to such demands, Susan Wortzman and Susan Nickle were part of the Sedona Canada Working Group 7 that assumed the responsibility of addressing e-Discovery issues across Canada and released the much awaited Canadian guidelines to e-Discovery: The Sedona Canada Principles(R) in 2008.

Wortzman Nickle looks forward to finding all the ways its Canadian e-discovery services can save law firms and their clients' time, expense, and risk.
