Obermayer Launches E-Discovery and Information Management Group

Philadelphia, PA (PressExposure) October 25, 2011 -- The law firm of Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel LLP announced today the creation of its E-Discovery and Information Management Practice Group. The new group is in response to the growing need of businesses to meet the ever-changing obligations of e-discovery.

The E-Discovery and Information Practice Group consists of 13 attorneys, from various disciplines of law, and IT professionals. The interdisciplinary group has been addressing e-discovery issues in their fields of law and guiding clients through all phases of information management and e-discovery.

"For years, we've been working with clients on e-discovery and information management and retention. Our work in this area continues to grow," stated Obermayer managing partner Robert Whitelaw. "It simply made sense for us to formalize the group so we can leverage our collective experiences and provide a higher level of support to our clients."

The practice group is led by Obermayer partner Mathieu J. Shapiro. Shapiro is also a member of the firm's Management Committee. "The vast amount of commercial litigation we do dictated the need for us to be involved in all facets of e-discovery from the get go," stated Shapiro. "Today, it is more important than ever that companies' outside counsel have practical experience in handling e-discovery. Failure to be adequately prepared for or respond properly to e-discovery requests could result in disastrous consequences."

The members of the E-Discovery and Information Practice Group include attorneys: Joseph Dougher, Jackie Gallagher, Richard Limburg, Joe McGovern, Nick Poduslenko, Jason Reisman, Gary Samms, Mathieu Shapiro, Hugh Sutherland, Alex Basilevsky, Kevin Kotch, Max McCauley and Aaron Peskin. Members are resident in Obermayer offices throughout the region.
