The new eDIM group will be led by Williams Venker & Sanders partner, Patrick Chavez who has experience working on litigation and non-litigation eDiscovery matters, and is a member of the Sedona Conference Working Group 1 on Electronic Document Retention and Production.
In announcing the formation of the eDIM group, the firm is expanding on its conventional litigation practice to offer its clients eDiscovery services, information management counseling, and project management experience.
The members of the eDIM group provide:

Complementing the formation of the eDIM group, Williams Venker & Sanders has added the talents of Arnold as a litigation support specialist.
He will work primarily within the eDIM group and will assist the firm’s attorneys with various litigation support activities. An information management veteran himself, Arnolds has worked extensively in the eDiscovery movement while working with the largest law firms in the country as an eDiscovery liaison.
