On November 14, 2012, Kelly Twigger will join an esteemed group of presenters including Judges from the Federal and State bench at the 5th Annual Electronic Discovery Conference sponsored by AIIM Wisconsin, Eastern District of Wisconsin Bar Association and the Milwaukee Bar Association.  The goal of this year’s conference is to provide content reflecting feedback from a survey of Bar Association members sent out earlier this year and start building a toolkit for lawyers to incorporate eDiscovery into their practice effectively.

The day-long seminar will begin with a primer on eDiscovery obligations by Andy Skwierawski of Friebert, Finerty & St. John and Matt  Stippich of Digital Intelligence. This session will explore various common technologies including email servers, mobile devices, SharePoint and cloud computing and the issues related to obtaining eDiscovery from such technologies.

Following the primer, conference panelists will discuss essentials to preservation including working with your client to preserve data, making decisions about the scope of preservation, and identifying what you need to learn to properly negotiate with opposing counsel during the meet and confer. This session will be moderated by Matthew W. O’Neill of Fox, O’Neill & Shannon. Panelists include Kathly L. Nusslock of Davis & Kuelthua; Shawn Olley of Midwest Legal & eData Services Inc.; Matthew J. Stippich and Stephen D.R. Taylor of Kohner, Mann & Kailas.

The afternoon begins with the always popular lunch and learn session appropriately titled View From the Bench. Lawyers and professionals who support eDiscovery know that what the judges think rules — literally. This is a great opportunity to hear about what judges from federal and state benches learned from the 7th Circuit electronic discovery pilot project, what they’re seeing in federal and state courts and their views on the proposed changes to the Federal Rules. Kelly Twigger will moderate a panel including the Hon. William E. Callahan Jr., U.S. of the District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin and the Hon. Richard J. Sankovitz, of the Milwaukee County Circuit Court.

During the next session, presenter Kelly Twigger will discuss recent eDiscovery decisions, trends and issues to pay attention to in handling cases. Kelly will also review the year in case law trends as well as how to recognize the issues your organization faces and how courts locally and across the country are viewing them.

Conference panelists discuss understanding the ethical implications of eDiscovery during the final conference session including typical scenarios confronted by lawyers, records managers and litigation support personnel. Matthew J. Stippich will moderate a group of  panelists including Jane E. Appleby, Senior Counsel at Aurora Health Care, Timothy J. Pierce of the State Bar of Wisconsin and Kelly Twigger.

The event will close with a conference wrap-up/Q&A  at 3:30 p.m.
