Robbins Geller Attorney Lea Bays Appointed to the Sedona Conference Working Group 1 Steering Committee
Last week, Robbins Geller attorney Lea Bays was appointed to the Sedona Conference Working Group 1 Steering Committee for a three-year term. The Steering Committee works to develop principles, guidance, and best practice recommendations for information governance and electronic discovery in the context of litigation, dispute resolution and investigations. Bays was selected to the Steering Committee because of her “capacity for dialogue and working to achieve consensus, subject matter expertise, [her] records of significant contributions to WG1 meetings and drafting team efforts, and demonstrated commitments to the mission of The Sedona Conference.”
Before being appointed to the Steering Committee, Bays served on drafting teams for two WG1 papers published in 2017: The Sedona Conference TAR Case Law Primer and The Sedona Conference Commentary on Proportionality in Electronic Discovery.
Bays focuses on e-discovery issues, from preservation through production, and provides counsel to the Firm’s multi-disciplinary, e-discovery team consisting of attorneys, forensic analysts and database professionals. Through her role as counsel to the e-discovery team, Bays is very familiar with the various stages of e-discovery, including identification of relevant electronically stored information, data culling, predictive coding protocols, privilege and responsiveness reviews, as well as having experience in post-production discovery through trial preparation. Through speaking at various events, she is also a leader in shaping the broader dialogue on e-discovery issues.
