Happy New Year from the Mayer Brown Electronic Discovery & Records Management Practice. We hope you found our Tips of the Month to be a valuable resource in 2010. To begin the new year, we are pleased to present an electronic compilation of the year’s tips for easy reference.

Accompanying this compilation is a summary of the key court decisions and emerging trends in e-discovery that were at the forefront of the discussion in 2010. Hot button issues included social media, cloud computing, privacy concerns, the blurring of the lines between business and personal communications, data located in foreign jurisdictions, and the courts’ continued willingness to impose severe sanctions against companies that purportedly failed to properly manage ESI. We expect to see further development on these topics in 2011.
