On Tuesday, November 29 at 1pm ET, EDRM will host the webinar How a Smoking Gun Message Illustrates the Importance of Slack ESI in eDiscovery!

In a recent decision in Red Wolf Energy Trading, LLC v. Bia Capital Management, LLC, et al., digital forensics and eDiscovery experts helped find the “Smoking Gun” evidence in Slack messages. Hear directly from experts involved in the case about impacts of these collaboration apps on litigation and eDiscovery. They will also answer questions including the extent organizations need to change their workflows to accommodate electronically stored information (ESI) from Slack and other collaboration app solutions, as well as how failing to properly address evidence from collaborations apps in eDiscovery can impact your case. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Growth in Use of Collaboration Apps in Recent Years
  • Challenges Associated with Discovery of ESI from Collaboration Apps
  • Recent Case Law Involving Slack and Other Collaboration App ESI in Discovery
  • Facts of the Red Wolf Energy Trading, LLC Litigation Case
  • Lessons Learned from Applications of Digital Forensics
  • Recommendations for In-House and External Counsel on Proper Handling of this Collaboration App Evidence

I’m excited to be presenting with the team directly involved in the Red Wolf case – Derek M. Duarte, Esq., Senior Vice President, Litigation at UnitedLex, Colleen E. Freeman, Esq., CEDS, Senior Director, Global Litigation at UnitedLex and John A. Sten, Esq., Partner & Co-leader, Securities Regulation and Litigation Practice Area, Armstrong Teasdale LLP!
