ESI Report

The Portfolio Management Approach to E-Discovery

For years, there was an unspoken notion that the only way to approach e-discovery was on a case-by-case basis; that every case was unique and similarly required a unique approach to discovery. But the constant cycle of collecting, analyzing, reviewing, and producing data wholly disconnected from other projects has created a lot of inefficiency. On this episode of the ESI Report, host Michele Lange interviews portfolio management experts David J. Kearny and John Winkler about an alternative approach to e-discovery.

David J. Kearney is the Director of Technology Services at Cohen & Grigsby PC, where he advises on technology, legal project management, and ediscovery litigation and support processes. David has years of experience managing technical staff while recommending, implementing, and managing hardware, software and workflow solutions, including e-discovery and project management, and has authored articles on e-discovery management practices, forensics, and other topics.

John Winkler is an Account Executive at Kroll Ontrack. He partners with law firm and corporate clients to provide sound advice and best practices in connection with the management of electronically stored information in litigation and investigation. With over 12 years of experience in legal technologies, John works with clients to effectively reduce the proposed scope of discovery.
