A boutique law firm has just formed that will focus on e-discovery. 

New Law Firm Targets E-Discovery Angst on law.com (in The Recorder) reports that a new, four lawyer, virtual firm “will offer strategic advice to businesses on improving the management of their digital information and records, how best to respond to electronic discovery requests and the risks involved in the integration of different information systems in the aftermath of a merger or acquisition.” The four lawyers met at as members of the Sedonna Conference.

I have previously suggested that large law firms appoint a senior lawyer as the e-discovery expert or “go to” person for e-discovery. This report just reinforces this idea and growing importance of firms getting a grip on e-discovery, from the legal issues, to the technology, to the management of projects.
