Scott A. Milner is a partner in Morgan Lewis’s eData Practice. Mr. Milner’s practice focuses on developing tailored strategies and discovery management plans for clients and firm attorneys, with an emphasis on electronic discovery. These responsibilities have included conducting and advising on all phases of discovery, including the preservation, collection, review, and production of large volumes of eDiscovery.
eData is an innovative practice founded by Morgan Lewis to address the impact of electronic data on business and legal strategies. Formerly known as Legal Logistics, eData helps clients meet increasingly demanding regulatory and legal requirements with cost-effective prelitigation risk management, eDiscovery consulting, and document review.
We partner with in-house legal, IT, and records-management teams as well as outside technology vendors to apply best practices, inside and outside litigation. We offer start-to-finish litigation management, from litigation holds and data preservation, to negotiations with opposing counsel, to discovery motion practice, depositions, and trial support. We are a national team with both West Coast and East Coast capabilities.
Our emphasis is on giving practical, real-world advice and services to clients. Combining legal experience with technological know-how, eData brings all aspects of electronic data and records management—which traditionally have operated independently—together in one shop. This critical link drives strategic thinking, collaboration, and problem solving. Our industry-leading “best practices” guide clients to meeting eDiscovery obligations in ways that minimize cost and maximize quality.
The eData Practice plays a large role in defending clients in corporate matters, including product liability, mass torts, antitrust, M&A, regulatory, white collar, compliance, construction, insurance coverage, and complex commercial litigation.
When consulting with clients and firm attorneys, Mr. Milner employs eData’s time-tested and proven “best practices” for preserving, harvesting, processing, reviewing, and producing large quantities of hard copy and electronic data in an efficient and cost-effective manner. He works closely with clients, firm attorneys, and the Practice Technology team to identify innovative solutions to issues such as technology and service provider selection, onsite hard copy and electronic data collection protocols, preparation of review manuals, and methods of production to the requesting party.
Mr. Milner is a frequent speaker at CLEs, seminars, and webcasts addressing eDiscovery issues, including case law updates, practice pointers for key phases of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model, and trends in eDiscovery.
Mr. Milner received his J.D., cum laude, from Villanova University School of Law in 2002. He is a recipient of the Presidential Recognition Award, and was inducted into the Florida Blue Key Leadership Honorary.
Mr. Milner is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
