The Winston & Strawn ediscovery and information management practice group was formed to centralize the firm's electronic information resources, attorneys, and staff in order to better advise and guide our clients and litigation teams in this specialized and rapidly evolving legal area. The ediscovery group includes partners, associates, paralegals, and technologists with extensive experience in implementing the best practices that are repeatable, defensible, and designed to reduce our clients' risks and costs.
Winston & Strawn's ediscovery group is one of the largest and most experienced ediscovery and information management teams in the United States and worldwide. The ediscovery group is composed of more than 20 partners and associates located throughout our domestic offices and supplemented by 20 technologists who focus on all aspects of e-discovery. Most of our technologists have prior vendor experience and in-depth knowledge of current and emerging technical tools and products. Our U.S.-based team is also supplemented by partners and associates located in our European and Asian offices who regularly deal with cross-border discovery and privacy issues. In addition, we have an experienced and well-trained group of staff attorneys who focus on discovery reviews and regularly supervise and quality check outsourced review teams or client teams.
Each attorney in the ediscovery group brings years of "real world" experience managing large-scale collections and reviews of electronically stored information for many Fortune 500 clients. Our experience includes not only complex litigation matters and third-party subpoenas, but also navigating difficult ediscovery issues in the context of high-stakes government and regulatory investigations. Our experience includes pharmaceutical product liability litigation; securities class actions; patent drug litigation, including ANDA application disputes; commercial litigation; white-collar investigations, including HHS, OIG, DOJ, and SEC investigations; FTC second requests; environmental torts; and labor class actions.
