Morgan Lewis Publishes 2021 eData Deskbook Featuring Dedicated Chapter on Data Privacy

December 09, 2021

PHILADELPHIA, December 9, 2021: The industry-leading eData team at Morgan Lewis has released the fourth edition of its eData Deskbook, an annotated, best-practices guide to electronic discovery and information governance for legal practitioners.

Revised to include a stand-alone chapter on the scope and enforcement of global data protection laws, the 2021 eData Deskbook not only features updated case law, but valuable insights on the legal challenges posed by developing data sources and critical information-governance strategies and data preservation tactics key to avoiding increasing sanctions.

“In a time of exponential data proliferation, it’s never been more critical for counsel to understand the new and emerging rules and best practices that inform information governance and discovery and the steps to be taken to ensure sensible and defensible management,” said Tess Blair, the guide’s editor and leader of the firm’s eData practice. “Evolving right along with this challenging practice, the revamped Deskbook is a practical, and perennial, reference on ediscovery and information governance.”

Pioneers in the ediscovery space, Morgan Lewis’s deep bench of lawyers, data scientists, technologists, and process designers leverage the proliferation of data to reveal new insights and change the way legal services are delivered. The global team combines its legal, technical, and process know-how to guide clients’ litigation and business strategies and effectively execute them, in court and on paper. Earlier this year, the award-winning eData practice was named to The National Law Journal’s 2021 Legal Technology Trailblazers list for the development of its proprietary LATHOS application. The digital tool enables lawyers, case teams, and clients to objectively evaluate the performance of review lawyers managing document reviews.
