Law Firm Inc., Vol. 5, Jan./Feb. 2007 at 24, provides some details about the Corporate E-Discovery Forum. “[C]reated in May 2006 … executives from the 83 member companies use the confidential forum to discuss strategies and emerging issues involving e-discovery.” James Wright, director of e-discovery for Halliburton Energy Services Group (Houston, TX) was one of the co-founders.
Here is another example of a group for law departments to join (See my post of Dec. 19, 2005 about other groups and four references.) as well as an admirable instance of collective law department action (See my post of Oct. 14, 2005 on collective activities by law departments.) and an underscore on the importance of discovery costs (See my post of Feb. 14, 2007 on Pfizer and its standard for handling litigation documents.).
