Leading US Law firm, Preston Gates & Ellis LLP, has announced the launch of Electronic Discovery Law blog devoted entirely to e-discovery issues. Visitors to the site can access a proprietary database of case listings and summaries, monitor the latest news and trends in e-discovery and learn about upcoming events and resources.
“The blog allows us to share the depth of our knowledge on electronic discovery,” said Martha Dawson, partner at Preston Gates and head of the firm’s Document Analysis Technology Group (DATG). “We used to send out a 160-plus page tome to our clients and prospects, detailing what we knew about e-discovery. It was impressive in size but it wasn’t efficient. Now all of that information is just a click away and available to everyone.”
The firm states it believes “the frequency and speed with which blogs can be updated make them an ideal vehicle for providing the most up-to-date information, a feature that lends itself well to the quick-changing landscape of e-discovery law” and demonstrates yet another interesting use for the medium.
