  Program: It has been almost one year since the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure were amended to formally include the discovery of electronically stored information. Since that time, corporate records and information management has begun to shift operations to meet these demands. Join us for a discussion at the September meeting and hear how recent developments in e-discovery impact the way organizations should meet and respond to e-discovery requests. Principal topics include:

• How recent case law is expanding and clarifying the actions organizations must take with regard to e-discovery preparedness
• Benchmarking: steps organizations are taking to reduce risk
• Expectations for the future and how to prepare your organization. 

Speakers:Peter B. Gronvall, Esq., focuses on assisting clients on a full range of e-discovery issues, with particular emphasis on discovery risk matters, including helping clients analyze, design and implement corporate data retention policies that comply with the new federal e-discovery rules.
