In Washington DC, e-discovery ‘thought leader‘ John Rosenthal leads the department, praised by clients for combining ‘deep knowledge of discovery issues with a trial lawyer’s mentality‘. The group also benefits from the forensic investigations and trade secrets expertise of Houston’s Sheryl Falk, who serves on commercial litigation trial teams in state and federal cases and arbitrations. Splitting his time between Hong Kong and Chicago, Steven Grimes focuses on compliance and data security issues, internal investigations, government interactions and disputes.
