Cohen to Discuss Attorneys' Ethical Obligations to Understand eDiscovery Technology during FTI Consulting Webinar on November 18, 2008
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced the availability of ESI Handbook: Sources, Technology and Process, written by Adam Cohen, senior managing director of FTI, and Edward Kalbaugh, an independent technical writer and consultant.
"With electronically stored information, or 'ESI,' holding the key to lawsuits and investigations, legal professionals, IT managers and corporate executives need a resource they can understand in resolving enterprise risk issues created by eDiscovery. The ESI Handbook provides simple and clear explanations of the technical and process issues critical to electronic discovery as well as toolkits for documenting sources of ESI, litigation hold procedures and retention policies," said Adam Cohen, a noted industry expert whose previously published legal treatise has been cited in several landmark electronic discovery opinions by federal courts, including three landmark Zubulake opinions.
The ESI Handbook addresses every facet of the eDiscovery process -- an element that has increasingly become a critical part of modern law practice as technology progressively plays a significant role in the legal process. This book is a must-read for professionals involved in the legal process and the application of technology, including lawyers, judges and IT personnel.
The book includes a CD that provides valuable material that can be used and customized for immediate application. The ESI Handbook is available for purchase from Aspen Publishers at http://www.aspenpublishers.com and Amazon.com.
Adam Cohen and Steven Bennett, a partner at Jones Day, will co-present a Webinar, "Ethics of ESI: Do Lawyers Need to be "Techies" in the Age of eDiscovery?" The complimentary Webinar will take place on Tuesday, November 18 at 1:00 pm ET. The webinar will explore the boundaries between legal and technical expertise and the impact of technology-related issues on lawyers' ethical duties to represent clients competently and zealously where so much relevant information is electronically stored.
