Heightened scrutiny of the financial industry is producing unprecedented legal challenges for financial institutions everywhere. Class action suits and governmental investigations have led to a surge in discovery of electronically stored information (ESI), straining company resources. Financial institutions are particularly vulnerable to eDiscovery demands because of the wide array of ESI they possess as well as their extensive database infrastructure.

At this webinar, Mr. Willis and Mr. Yannella will review recent technological and legal trends in the field of eDiscovery that particularly affect financial institutions. They'll focus on trends that may help financial institutions mitigate their eDiscovery costs.
