eTERA Consulting to Host Webinar on Applying Project Management to eDiscovery Processes

Prominent Legal Industry Veterans to Discuss Best Practices of Effective Legal Project Management

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - November 15, 2016) - eTERA Consulting, an international leader in data and technology management, today announced it will host a complimentary webinar focused on legal project management best practices on Thursday, November 17, 2016 at 11:00 AM EST with panel speakers Todd Haley and Michael Quartararo.

Effective project management in eDiscovery can have an equal, or in some circumstances, greater effect on the outcome of litigation than the actual merits of the case. Going through discovery without a project plan and sound project-oriented processes means taking unnecessary risks that could result in excessive costs, affect the outcome of the case or result in monetary sanctions. Effective project management is key to avoiding such negative outcomes.

This one-hour complimentary webinar will feature Todd Haley, Vice President of Business Intelligence at eTERA Consulting and Michael Quartararo, Director of Litigation Support Services at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP. Panelists will provide attendees with a model for effective project management in eDiscovery including:

  • Brief introduction to eDiscovery project management
  • Importance of legal project management for defensibility
  • Project management considerations for preservation, collection, processing, review and production of Electronically Stored Information (ESI)
  • The stages of the legal project management process in eDiscovery

This webinar is part of eTERA's ongoing series of training and education initiatives to help legal professionals stay abreast of critical issues surrounding data management and eDiscovery. To register, please click here.
