The American College of e-Neutrals (ACESIN) has announced that Richard F. Greenleaf has been selected to join the College of E-Neutrals as one of its distinguished Fellows.
The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Construction Rules of the American Arbitration Association and other administrators of dispute resolution services allow for the discovery of electronically stored information (ESI). Commonly referred to as “e-discovery,” this has added a new dimension to disputes which is extremely burdensome and costly if not handled properly. Attorney and client failures in handling e-discovery have led to an increase in litigation/arbitrator costs and sanctions being imposed . Neutral third-parties who resolves discovery disputes involving ESI, are the key to resolving e-discovery disputes in a timely and efficient manner while promoting party cooperation. Mr. Greenleaf's practice focuses on the arbitration of complex construction disputes where e-discovery disputes are commonplace.
