Listen to a new format for ESIBytes as serial E-Discovery entrepreneur Karl Schieneman, President of Review Less and who will be joined by Special Host on a recurring basis, the Hon. John Facciola. We will interview those in E-Discovery who are making their marks by trying new approaches and try to get behind the story of their successes into what the world was thinking when they were trying to change the field. We will talk to those who have made historical impacts as well as those today who are trying out new approaches and perhaps are challenging the status quo. We hope to provide a unique view into risk taking in E-Discovery from the perspective of those who have or are taking risks and also analyze the important role that mentoring plays in the lives of our guests both looking backwards and looking forward.
Our first guest for this program will be Patrick Oot, a Shareholder at Shook Hardy & Bacon who has had well publicized stints at the SEC overseeing e-Discovery, Verizon where he oversaw e-Discovery and helped Verizon be named as a Top 10 Most Innovative legal groups by Inside Counsel magazine in 2007, and has been influential in spearheading research into better review approaches with people and technology as a founding member of the e-Discovery Institute. We are thrilled that Patrick has agreed to join us as we launch a new version of ESIBytes.
