Tom O and Advanced Discovery Once Again Participate In University of Florida EDRM E-Discovery Conference


I’m proud to announce that Advanced Discovery will once again be having two participants in the University of Florida EDRM E-Discovery Conference on March 30th in Gainesville, Fla.  Both Canaan Himmelbaum, Vice President of Business Development and Tom O’Connor, Senior ESU Consultant, will be featured speakers at the event.

The event this year, the 4th Annual Conference, will be held in Holland Hall at the University of Florida, Levin College of Law in Gainesville, and will be streamed online as well. Bill Hamilton, partner at Quarles & Brady and Executive Director of the E-Discovery Project at the U of Florida Levin College of Law, says that “The education mission of the Conference is to address the needs of everyday attorneys handling medium sized cases that still often involve tens if not hundreds of gigabytes of data. Our goal is provide students, attorneys, paralegals and litigation support professionals with exposure to readily and reasonably available technologies that will help them implement best practices.”

A further description of the Conference from their website says:

The Conference this year provides a pathway for attorneys, paralegals and support professionals to move beyond simple keyword searching to basic data analytics.  Come join us to see how simple tools such as near duplicates analysis, automatic document grouping, document clustering, and the magical process of finding “more like this.”

Our Conference features a special kick off in the morning with Craig Ball speaking on the 9 e-discovery skills every litigator and trial attorney must have and a luncheon address by the Hon. Ralph Artigliere on emerging e-discovery ethics.

This year we also added a judges panel featuring Florida State Court Judge Gill Freeman (Miami), US Magistrate Judges Gary Jones (N.D. Fla.), William Matthewman (S.D. Fla.) and Anthony Porcelli (M.D. Fla.) discussing the e-discovery competency courts should expect from attorneys.

Our exciting national experts from around the nation drawn from leading law firms, vendors and corporate legal departments once again return with some fresh faces and hands-on demonstrations.

Join our faculty and guests all day as we cover the basics of e-discovery competency in 2016.
