As complex litigation increasingly involves issues dealing with electronically stored information (ESI), judges are confronting technical and legal issues that require specialized expertise. A court may appoint a special master who can help facilitate, monitor or adjudicate e-discovery issues. This area is one of Tim Opsitnick’s specialties. As an E-Discovery Special Master, he can:
- Facilitate electronic discovery
- Monitor discovery compliance
- Adjudicate technical disputes related to ESI
- Adjudicate legal disputes related to ESI
Similarly, Opsitnick can serve as an e-discovery coordinator, where required under the local rules, or as an expert witness concerning ESI.
