Sarah Millar, Lenczner Slaght Royce Smith Griffin LLP
Discovery is now a largely electronic process, and in large scale litigation involves a significant quantity of data. The costs to parties can be enormous.
To best serve clients, it is crucial that there be defensible and cost-effective ways to approach discovery. Doing this properly requires understanding and embracing technology and utilizing third party vendors where appropriate. This requires innovation and leadership.
“Sarah Millar has been at the forefront of developing an integrated approach to discovery involving lawyers, paralegals, tech personnel and external service providers. This provides significant cost-savings to clients and can also be a significant driver of profit for law firms (vs. having this work done entirely be third parties).”
Millar “is comfortable at the intersection of law, technology and project management, and is adept at managing relationships both within the firm and with third party service providers."
