DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- Falcon Discovery, the industry leader for in-house e-discovery managed services, today announced that it is co-sponsoring and presenting at the Corporate eDiscovery Forum ("CEDF") in Minneapolis on August 8, 2013.
The CEDF meeting on August 8 will include a full-day of panels and roundtables, including sessions set aside exclusively for in-house members to dialogue and benchmark on e-discovery management issues such as: technology selection, process management, and best practice tips for reducing data volumes in-house. The meeting will also include a judicial panel that will address a variety of topics, including Minnesota's new rules concerning e-discovery.
"As a former in-house lawyer and CEDF member, I appreciated the opportunity to network and benchmark with other in-house lawyers and e-discovery professionals during the CEDF meetings," noted Falcon's Founder and President, Don McLaughlin, "and I am delighted that Falcon is sponsoring CEDF's meeting in Minneapolis." During the August 8 meeting, Mr. McLaughlin will participate in a mock pre-trial hearing concerning technology-assisted review. The Honorable Judge Andrew Peck will preside over the mock hearing, which will include a heated debate about the merits of technology-assisted review and under what circumstances it can be used to advance the discovery process.
"As an in-house managed services provider for several CEDF member organizations, we are looking forward to contributing our insights and expertise during the Minneapolis meeting," said Mr. McLaughlin, "and we encourage others with corporate e-discovery responsibilities to register and participate in CEDF."
Since 2006, CEDF has been the preferred place for Fortune 1000 corporations to meet and collaborate on the complexities of electronic discovery and information management. CEDF currently includes over 300 corporations, and more than 550 individual members include the AGC of Litigation, in-house e-Discovery Attorneys, IT e-Discovery Liaison and IT Security, Litigation Support Managers, Paralegals and Records Managers and Information Governance Directors.
