The costs of eDiscovery should not be an obstacle to obtaining a fair merits-based resolution of a dispute. My goal is to keep the focus on the merits of a matter by employing strategies to contain eDiscovery costs and keep the scope of discovery proportional to the size of each matter. This is in the best interests of our clients and dispute resolution in general.
Wendy serves as the firm’s eDiscovery SME and regularly counsels clients and colleagues on the full spectrum of eDiscovery issues from preservation through production. eDiscovery costs can escalate easily in litigation. Wendy understands this and employs a cost-cutting approach to addressing client eDiscovery challenges, including the use of effective meet and confer strategies, targeted collections, data analytics and document review workflow efficiencies. Wendy’s approach is simple and effective at right-sizing the eDiscovery to the litigation.
Wendy serves as a part-time instructor for an undergraduate business course offered by Penn State University’s World Campus (on-line course work) on the topic of the Social, Legal and Ethical Environment of Business. Wendy is actively involved in local politics and regularly volunteers to serve local, state and national candidates. During the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections, Wendy served as a poll watcher at local polling places to protect voters, address ballot issues and escalate voting issues requiring a higher level of resolution.
