Buckley Sandler Webcast: eDiscovery Challenges in Government Investigations
Government investigations are high stakes and often involve significant risk—both financial and reputational—for companies. These investigations often pose significant eDiscovery challenges insofar as the motivations of the parties and the rules of the road are not quite the same as in a typical litigation context. Counsel must be aware of the eDiscovery challenges in handling subpoenas from government agencies and informed about the important legal and strategic eDiscovery decisions that need to be made at each stage of an investigation.
Please join Buckley Sandler partners Elizabeth McGinn and Caitlin Kasmar to discuss eDiscovery in government investigations and practical suggestions to responding to subpoenas or civil investigative demands from government agencies.
As part of the conversation, we will address recent case law in this area and discuss concerns such as:
- Critical first steps to take when a subpoena comes in
- How to ask the “right” questions about internal systems and document repositories
- What the government agency issuing the subpoena has in mind when drafting requests
- Practical tips on how to negotiate a subpoena so as to significantly limit the burden and expense of responding
