Philip N. Yannella


Mr. Yannella will participate on a panel focusing on pre-litigation document management and preservation best practices and ethical duties for:

  • Technology assessments and inventory
  • Employee education
  • Designing and implementing document retention policies and preservation plans
  • Litigation risk assessments

The panel will also explore recent developments and emerging issues of the discovery process, including:

  • Use of outside vendors and new technologies
  • Navigation of court-imposed duties and associated ethical obligations in litigation
  • Metadata
  • Instant messaging, mobile devices, and social media
  • Preserving privilege and confidential client information in written discovery and deposition
  • Key (and potentially problematic) differences between federal and state court treatment of discovery
