Join George Socha, co-creator of the EDRM, as he moderates a conversation with Bonnie Kennedy of Delta Air Lines, Avi Benayoun of Greenberg Traurig, and Adam Strayer of BDO. They will discuss the TAR workflow and the importance of open communication between and among the client, the law firm, and the service provider. These three litigation and ediscovery experts will talk about expectations, transparency, and some of the information black holes that can develop during the predictive coding process.
This webinar is generously sponsored by BDO and is part of a webinar series designed to help educate lawyers and judges on various aspects of TAR in advance of the invitation-only Duke Conference on TAR (Sept. 7-8 in Arlington, Va.), which aims to develop best practices for using TAR.
