Robbins Geller: Leading the Future of E-Discovery

With the technology world ever-changing, e-discovery is expanding its reach into new and exciting territories. As it grows, the need for technologically savvy professionals has become greater, with standards soaring higher than ever before. By developing reliable practices for e-discovery, Robbins Geller has become a technological leader in the field. With its multi-disciplinary team of attorneys, forensic analysts and database professionals, the Firm has developed a comprehensive e-discovery strategy that is case-specific for modern litigation needs.

Document discovery just isn’t feasible without utilizing e-discovery. Evidence is now created, managed, organized and produced electronically – even a document printed on paper was created and accessed via a computer. The days of hand-written data are long behind us, and adaption and innovation are keys to succeeding in document-intensive litigation. Though electronically stored information (ESI) is used now in nearly every case, its complexity and sheer volume can change drastically from case to case, reinforcing the need for e-discovery leaders who have the tools to handle each challenge efficiently. Not only will e-discovery be shaping the future of litigation, it will be shaping laws.  For instance, many of the changes to the discovery rules in the 2015 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure contemplated the predominance of e-discovery in complex litigation.

As the size and stakes of complex litigation continue to increase, it is more important than ever to retain counsel with a successful track record of results. With 200 attorneys supported by a large staff of forensic and e-discovery specialists, Robbins Geller has a level of technological sophistication that is unmatched by any other firm. The attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience in drafting and negotiating sophisticated e-discovery protocols, including those involving the use of predictive coding.  They have helped shape the e-discovery dialogue by regularly contributing to industry publications and lecturing extensively on predictive coding and other technology-assisted review, as well as various discovery issues related to the 2015 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

Robbins Geller has the ability to manage and host all of its litigation support in-house, allowing the firm to implement advanced analytic technologies and custom workflows that work quickly and efficiently. The litigation support team is comprised of project managers, a Relativity systems administrator, data analytics specialists, a trial manager, and six Relativity Certified Administrators.  Collectively, the Robbins Geller forensic and technology professionals have well more than 75 years of e-discovery experience, effectively making them leaders in shaping the e-discovery industry. They play prominent roles in the local chapters of Women in eDiscovery and the Relativity Users Steering Committee.

With security being a top priority for Robbins Geller, all Firm-hosted e-discovery is protected using bank-level 128 encryption and is safeguarded behind state-of-the-art Cisco firewalls. Additionally, the information is hosted on Firm-owned equipment that has been installed in a private cage at the AIS Data Center in San Diego, California. AIS is an SSAE 16-compliant, SOC 1, 2, and 3 audited facility that features 9.1 megawatts of power, N+1 or better redundancy on all data center systems, and security protocols required by leading businesses in the most stringent verticals. The facility was originally designed to support a large defense contractor, meaning that it was built to rigorous standards and includes redundant power, cooling systems and multiple generators. The Robbins Geller disaster recovery site is hosted at a similar AIS data center in Phoenix, Arizona.
