Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, one of the world’s leading law firms, today announced the publication of a new book, Electronic Discovery: Law and Practice, by Adam I. Cohen and David J. Lender, partners in the firm’s Litigation practice. The book is the first comprehensive analysis of the case law involving electronic discovery. Published by Aspen Publishers, it is available for purchase from the publisher (www.aspenpublishers.com) and on Amazon.com.
Noting that electronic discovery is the hottest of “hot issues” in litigation today, co-authors Cohen and Lender say they wrote the book—which has already been cited in two groundbreaking e-discovery opinions by Judge Shira Scheindlin of the Southern District of New York—to provide lawyers and others interested in e-discovery with a comprehensive reference for the legal and practical issues that are developing so rapidly in this area.
The book provides in-depth treatment on the entire range of electronic discovery issues, including:
How electronic discovery is treated differently by courts;
Duties for the retention of electronic records;
The impact of electronic document retention policies on litigation;
Shifting the costs of electronic discovery to an adversary;
Admitting and precluding electronic evidence;
How electronic communication affects the attorney-client privilege;
Specific rules for discovering government information.
Mr. Cohen specializes in litigation on intellectual property and commercial matters, with a focus on computer and Internet-related issues. He has extensive experience with digital music copyright issues and has represented some of the world’s largest media and technology companies.
Mr. Lender, a specialist in complex commercial litigation, focuses on patent and intellectual property law. He has successfully tried numerous cases in both federal and state courts and, as co-lead counsel on a case resulting in one of the largest jury awards in the United States in 2003, he won more than $400 million for his client.
