Tom Howe is currently revising Electronic Discovery Technologies. He has over 25 years experience as a trial lawyer and computer technologist. He is a sought after speaker on the topic of "e-discovery." With amendments in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and emerging case law placing greater burdens on lawyers, their support staff, corporate counsel and IT departments to respond swiftly, competently and completely to discovery requests for electronically stored information, Electronic Discovery Technologies is a unique and timely reference work and practical guide. Bridging the legal-technology gap using plain language, and focuses on ways in which various software products -- many of them adapted by the author in his practice to perform e-discovery tasks -- can be used effectively in the civil litigation workflow. Specific problems are the springboard for not only discussions of practical discovery strategies with useful references to new court rules and case law, they also form the basis for step-by-step illustrated tutorials to teach anyone in the legal profession or corporate IT how to use readily available software to get a better grip on digital data -- and even have some fun! The revised book, to be released soon, will have the very latest in e-discovery law and technologies, from one of the lawyer technologists who, according to a recent article published at findlaw.com, rank among the most "capable e-discovery attorneys" who number only "around 200 worldwide."
