Description: Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, one of the world’s leading international law firms, seeks to hire a highly qualified senior attorney with law firm experience to join our eData Practice in the New York, Philadelphia, or Washington, D.C. offices.
Morgan Lewis’s eData team delivers innovation and efficiency across all of the information management challenges that our clients face. Using the best of technology and mobility, Morgan Lewis has the global capacity to provide end-to-end discovery anywhere on the planet. Our unique team, composed of both lawyers and technologists, serves Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 clients across a wide range of industries and practice areas. eData’s mission is to combine great lawyering with technology and process to deliver real efficiency and value to clients. With a critical eye on each client’s bottom line, eData has the flexibility to tailor its services to provide any or all of the full range of electronic data management services, including information governance, data mining, electronic discovery, compliance, and in-house employee training. Because eDiscovery inherently carries a high risk of inefficiency and legal noncompliance, the team’s working model emphasizes cost containment and alternative billing along with a high-caliber, comprehensive command of legal issues.
The eData associate provides legal counsel and electronic data management, and project management services to firm clients on eData matters across various practice groups and over various industries. The role will be responsible for counseling internal and external clients on topics such as information governance, data privacy and GDPR and litigation discovery advice, strategy and management, and will serve as a team lead on eData managed review and other managed legal services.
