Last week, the second annual Complex Litigation E-Discovery Forum (CLEF) took place at the Minneapolis Club in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Lieff Cabraser partner Annika K. Martin (left, above) led a discussion on “Proportionality a year after the Amendments,” which covered amendments to the Federal Rules in December 2015 with regard to case law and effective strategies for plaintiffs within civil procedures.
Co-founded and presented by Ms. Martin, the CLEF event was a rousing success, bringing together lawyers from around the country for an info-rich opportunity to gain cutting-edge insight into this critical and growing area of complex practice.
Other topics covered at the forum included: Big Data and Storylines, Negotiating a State of the Art ESI Protocol, and Document Review Strategies, as well as a demonstration on the data that can be all-too-easily captured from text messages and other cell phone data.
About the Complex Litigation E-Discovery Forum
The Complex Litigation E-Discovery Forum (CLEF) is an annual forum for plaintiffs’-side complex litigation attorneys to share experiences, lessons learned, and best practices to address electronic discovery issues unique to the plaintiffs’ bar. The invitation-only forum is an e-discovery think-tank, not a CLE.
