Mayer Brown's Electronic Discovery & Information Governance practice works with clients to manage the risks and costs associated with electronic information by establishing procedures for electronic discovery and records management that allow for timely responses to discovery demands and are defensible before any court or regulatory body. Our practice includes lawyers in the US, EU, Asia and Latin America who are experienced in litigation and corporate and regulatory law, and who have addressed electronic discovery and records management problems across multiple industries.
The vast majority of business information is created and stored electronically. This information can exist in a multitude of formats and reside in a multitude of locations within a company or with third-party vendors. As courts and regulators expand the reach of electronic discovery, the burdens and costs of preserving and managing this information keep increasing. More importantly, the risks associated with electronic information, including the failure to properly preserve, collect, disclose, produce and manage electronic information correctly, have grown substantially as courts and regulators focus on these issues.
