Differentiating ESI vs. Knowledge

Most of my eDiscovery career has revolved around architecting systems and processes required to extract ESI relevant to high risk-value incidents. In my first forensic-discovery decade I mostly did the extraction, review and testing for prosecutors or counsel.

Will Omicron Kill Legalweek New York 2022?

  The trickle of LTNY briefing cancellations and rescheduling requests started over the holidays. I expected some from the Delta wave, but I did not expect this Monday’s wave of ‘we regret to inform you that CompanyX will not be presenting at Legalweek due to safety concerns’.
