Our e-discovery blog, Electronic Discovery Law, focuses on legal issues, news, and best practices relating to the discovery of electronically stored information.

The K&L Gates e-Discovery Analysis & Technology (e-DAT) group delivers creative, efficient, and cost-effective records management, e-discovery, and litigation readiness services to a broad range of clients across multiple industries. Our team, led by experienced trial lawyers, includes partners, staff lawyers, document review lawyers, litigation support managers, paralegals, clerks, and coders. We have been at the forefront of e-discovery and automated records management for over a decade, counseling clients nationally and internationally on these issues.

Our capabilities are used in a wide range of litigation, investigation, compliance, and business matters. We regularly serve as special counsel for discovery-related issues for our clients involved in litigation, governmental, or regulatory matters, even where our firm is not primary counsel in the matter. We learn the intricacies of our clients’ business as well as their electronic documents and data, applying that knowledge to each new matter while working closely with inside and outside counsel.

When legal review of documents is required, we rely on our specially trained review lawyers, most of whom have worked for K&L Gates for years. These professionals have made document review their careers, and unlike other review teams, are employees of the firm. This pool and depth of experience allows us to expand and contract quickly – growing to more than 100 review lawyers when necessary – staffing matters to best meet the needs of our clients.

Our lawyers frequently write and speak on records management and e-discovery topics at national and international conferences and legal profession events, as well as bringing their collective experience and knowledge to bear on client matters. We are involved at the forefront of document retention and electronic discovery policy through Lawyers for Civil Justice, the Sedona Conference, the Georgetown Advanced E-Discovery Institute, and other organizations, and are participating in the process of updating the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and various state rules to address the discovery of electronically stored information.
