ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - DTI, the nation's largest independent provider of e-discovery services and managed document review, has announced that it will sponsor a panel discussion on litigation readiness issues at the Washington, DC forum of The Masters Conference for Legal Professionals this Thursday, September 19, 2013. The event will feature Vincent Catanzaro, Senior Counsel, Global Discovery Manager for E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, and Andrea D'Ambra, Counsel in Drinker Biddle's Commercial Litigation Practice Group and a member of the firm's IP Litigation and Electronic Discovery & Data Management teams. Jeffrey Jacobs, DTI's Associate General Counsel and head of the Company's litigation readiness consulting practice, will moderate the panel discussion.

"Advance preparation is one of the keys to controlling costs and managing risks in eDiscovery," says Catanzaro. "Having a documented, repeatable process in place helps ensure that nothing is missed. And figuring out what you're going to do before you need to do it, rather than on-the-fly and ad hoc for each case, can result in tremendous cost savings." 

Ms. D'Ambra, who counsels clients on preservation and data management issues, and has drafted e-discovery manuals for a number of multi-national companies, stresses that "one of the best ways to reduce discovery costs is to have an effective records and email retention (and disposition) policy. Knowing what you have (and what you don't have) can help avoid wild goose chases, while also reducing the cost of reviewing outdated information."
