OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Everlaw, the cloud-native investigation and litigation platform, will host Everlaw Summit, the company's flagship in-person experience for its customers, partners and the greater ediscovery community from Nov. 2 to 4, 2022 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. The event will feature live programming centering on education, connection and transformation with 26 sessions and six networking events, including Women in Ediscovery, as well as the Everlaw Summit Awards.
Attendees will learn from experts, get hands-on guidance in the latest technology, and connect with peers who are creating the future of ediscovery and litigation in the cloud.
"We designed Summit to deliver a high return-on-investment for legal practitioners' valuable time," said Everlaw Founder and CEO AJ Shankar. "We're bringing together the best in the legal industry for three days of insights and collaboration, united around the goal of uncovering the truth faster."
Keynotes and select sessions include:
- Bad Blood: Exposing Theranos – Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner John Carreyrou shares how he combs through millions of data points to find his smoking gun—whether in exposing long-secret Medicare fraud or revealing billion dollars worth of deception at Theranos. Reed Kathrein, partner at Hagens Berman, joins him to dive into the Theranos litigation.
- Seeking Truth and Healing in Our Nation's Deadly Opioid Crisis – In a fireside chat, Rachel Taketa, processing and reference archivist at the University of Calif., San Francisco, and Shana Simmons, general counsel at Everlaw, discuss how recent opioid litigation helped expose one of the greatest injustices in modern times—and opened up a host of sensitive data to archives that will soon become a priceless public good.
- Peer into the Future of Ediscovery – Dr. Maura Grossman, professor at University of Waterloo, and David Cohen, chair, records and ediscovery at Reed Smith, will take a deep-dive into the intersection of law, technology and economics, and the role of the courts in adjudicating ediscovery disputes as innovation evolves.
- Adding Value Through the Ediscovery Process and Beyond – Jay Carle, partner and deputy chair of the ediscovery and information governance practice group at Seyfarth Shaw joins Joshua Hodas, Ph.D., partner at Lewis Brisbois and member of the firm's IP and technology practices, to discuss how they extract value from the ediscovery process and carry those benefits forward through the entire litigation lifecycle.
