Metadata: The Hidden Digital World of Client Files in Litigation

Commonplace law practice technology – word processing documents, email, and spreadsheets – has a hidden underside: It collects a host of information about how and when documents are created, the substantive changes made to them, and by whom. This information is all created automatically, stored, and is potentially identified and used by adversaries in litigation. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to the nature of metadata, and how it is discovered in the course of e-discovery and used in litigation. The program will also discuss how to negotiate electronically stored information (ESI) stipulations and how you can satisfy your meet and confer obligations with regard to metadata and e-discovery. Topics to be covered:

  • What is metadata in documents and email and how is it used in litigation?
  • Overview of rules governing metadata in e-discovery
  • How to you negotiate electronically stored information (ESI) stipulations
  • How to you satisfy your meet and confer obligations with regard to e-discovery and metadata
  • Best practices of handling metadata in litigation

Washington partner, Michael E. Lackey, Jr. will be presenting this webinar.
