United States: Dispute resolution

E-discovery

Within: E-discovery

'Operating at the top of its game', the team at Kirkland & Ellis LLP is jointly led by New York-based James Mutchnik and Michelle Six, who is 'incredible with clients' and has 'a deep understanding of sophisticated systems and the folks who manage them'. The group is often called upon to assist clients with litigation holds, data-retention policies, privilege issues, employee training, data management and privacy - in addition to e-discovery strategy and the development of data-collection procedures. The group successfully represented Juan Hernandez and James Dossett, on a pro bono basis, in a putative class action against the City of Houston alleging that the plaintiffs were detained beyond the constitutionally allowable window without neutral determination of probable cause; the firm's e-discovery process uncovered a number of abuses committed by the defendant.
