20 July 2014 – An interesting piece in The Washington Post about Winston & Strawn:
“Winston wants to compete head to head with e-discovery vendors such as FTI and Kroll. This year, the firm started pushing a new service in which Winston’s e-discovery team will handle e-discovery for cases even if other law firms — often their competitors in the legal market — are handling the actual litigation of the case”.
The piece states that one of the fastest-growing departments at Winston & Strawn is also one of the most obscure, at least to many outside of the legal world:
“The law firm has taken the unusual step of creating an in-house shop to handle an important but unglamorous part of the legal process known as e-discovery — the management of electronically stored data such as e-mails and text messages that law firms and corporate legal departments must gather, analyze and turn over to adversaries in litigation, and to the government in investigations of corporate malfeasance”.
