  • Educational Webinar
    • An Ounce of Prevention: eDiscovery Project Planning – We have a lot of maxims about the value of preparation, and perhaps the most well-known is “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Investing the time and effort required for effective planning, from the beginning, produces downstream benefits including saved time, saved money, reduced risk, and increased defensibility.  The clichés became clichés for a reason.  In this free, one-hour webinar, XDD Director of Education Matthew Verga and XDD VP of eDiscovery Operations Sean King discuss various aspects of effective eDiscovery project planning – including checklists for each step – to equip you with the knowledge you need to reduce your chaos, your costs, and your risks.

As always, we welcome your input regarding future topics for our webinars, articles, and white papers.  Share your interests with us here.
