Nixon Peabody Attorneys Offer Guidelines for E-Discovery; New York State Attorneys Publish State Bar Association's Practitioners Guide

The New York State Bar Association has released a new publication, Guidelines for Best Practices in E-Discovery in New York State and Federal Courts.

The guide was developed under the direction of the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section and its chair, David H. Tennant, a Rochester-based Nixon Peabody LLP partner, and co-authored by Nixon Peabody’s Constance Boland, a New York City–based commercial litigation partner.

November 4, 2011 - The Guidelines offers practical, concise advice for lawyers and judges in managing electronic discovery in state and federal courts in New York and is the first of its kind practitioner-focused compilation to highlight key distinctions between e-discovery law and practice in the New York state and federal court systems.

Ms. Boland, who co-chairs the section’s E-Discovery Committee, notes that the topics addressed represent areas of high risk for client and counsel and that the Guidelines aims to improve awareness and foster communication, with the goal of containing risk.

Each of the guidelines outlined in the publication is accompanied by extensive commentary. The complete Guidelines is available free of charge at

Guidelines for Best Practices is the result of months of work by members of the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section’s E-Discovery Committee. The process of preparing the publication involved extensive input from New York practitioners, judges, and technical and industry experts. The Section is planning a series of CLE events on the Guidelines, as well as regular updates as warranted.

The 77,000-member New York State Bar Association is the largest voluntary state bar association in the nation. It was founded in 1876.
