October 12, Washington, D.C. LAWFUEL – Law, attorney, legal technology, legal news & researchDOAR’s newest office at 607 14th Street NW, Suite 520 (The Red Sage Building) opened today and expands DOAR’s ability to consult law firms, corporate legal departments and government agencies on the management and presentation of information in pending and active litigation and regulatory matters. DOAR will be in a position to better support its DC client base and to fill a critical need of its Northeast clients with DC offices.
DOAR’s services in DC consist of document management, electronic discovery, jury consulting, analytical trial graphics, and trial support and technology. DOAR consults on antitrust/FTC matters, ITC hearings, regulatory investigations and complex commercial litigation matters.
The DC office is staffed by litigation consultants, jury consultants, graphic artists and project managers, among others. Several New York-based DOAR employees have relocated to the new DC office. DOAR is also actively recruiting to fill several open positions.
Sam Solomon, DOAR’s CEO, and Paul Neale, the firm’s Vice President and General Manager, currently share responsibility for managing the Washington, D.C. office. Solomon is a legal strategist and prominent speaker with more than 20 years of experience in the legal, financial and information technology industries. He has provided expert testimony in courts nationwide on a range of issues, including information technology, jury strategy, jury issues and the admissibility of graphics.
Neale is a nationally recognized expert in the rapidly changing area of electronic discovery, and has provided key expert witness testimony on issues relating to trial technology, case management and electronic discovery. He recently testified as an expert on the handling of electronic evidence in the Adelphia-related United States v. John Rigas, et al. criminal defense trial.
“The DC office represents the culmination of one of DOAR’s long-term strategic growth objectives,“ said Neale. “Many of our current New York clients have significant operations in the nation’s capital; furthermore, we believe the time is right for businesses and organizations involved in regulatory and other governmental matters to have access to the same cutting edge technologies, in-depth research and other support which DOAR provides for litigation matters and arbitrations.“
Jonathan Lerner, an attorney at Skadden, Arps, Meagher & Flom in New York and a client of DOAR, is among those applauding DOAR’s increased accessibility within the Beltway. “We’ve worked with DOAR on matters handled by our New York office,” Lerner said. “We believe their expansion will enhance their ability to service our colleagues in Washington as well as our firm in general.“
DOAR considers Washington, D.C. a significant market for electronic discovery in particular. The firm has managed e-discovery matters relating to regulatory investigations and civil matters on behalf of many of the nation’s largest investment banks; market timing and late trading investigations on behalf of mutual fund companies and brokers; and FCC indecency investigations on behalf of national media companies DOAR has also been involved in some of the country’s most high-profile cases including the trial of Martha Stewart, the World Trade Center Insurance Litigation, the IPO Allocation Class Action, the trial of the Adelphia executives and the Visa/Mastercard Antitrust Litigation.
