A testifying and consulting expert in Computer Forensics and eDiscovery, David is a Certified Forensic Litigation Consultant by the Forensic Expert Witness Association (FEWA) and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). In speaking with an AmLaw 100 litigator, and a solo practitioner about returning to court, David found

…they did agree on was that some court hearings are best suited to be managed remotely – especially non-trial hearings such as procedural, non-contested, or standard appearance hearings.

Doug Austin’s interview delves into the acceleration Ricoh accomplished in become remote ready in the beginning of the pandemic, as well as a look at the benefits to vertical experience in geographically dispersed remote review.

For example, if you are in Houston, Texas where a lot of energy-related litigation takes place, and you have a review center in Houston, you can assume there’s a pretty good marketplace for qualified and experienced review attorneys locally. However, there may be suitably experienced people in Calgary or parts of Idaho, or other areas where energy work is impactful.  Those reviewers may have energy industry experience even exceeding some Houston reviewers. That’s a potential advantage to clients who have review needs – to get the most qualified reviewers, regardless of where they’re located.
