The threat of having your organization affected by an e-Discovery request is becoming more of a reality every day.   And, if your organization is a small or mid-sized business, that threat has the potential to place an economic and human resource burden on your company that might be just enough to drive that company out of business.

Being aware and being prepared, for these e-discovery requests, are disaster preparedness actions that require much learning, evaluating and planning effort(s).

To help that process, the Legal Talk Network has released the latest edition of Sensei’s Digital Detectives podcast, entitled “The Five Hottest Topics in E-Discovery.” Podcasters Sharon D. Nelson, Esq. and John W. Simek, Sensei’s President and Vice President, welcomed California attorney and e-discovery expert, Josh Gilliland, the noted author of the Bow Tie Blog to discuss the five hottest topics in e-discovery today.

Their discussion included the form of production,  litigation holds after the Pension Committee case, how small firms are surviving their entry into e-discovery, preservation of ESI and how to prove that an e-discovery request will cause an “undue burden.”

Ms. Nelson noted, “Josh is not only a true expert in this area, but he invests his commentary with wit, which is undoubtedly why he is such a popular e-discovery speaker. We were honored to have him share his expertise with our listeners.”
