Hellmuth & Johnson attorney Brendan Kenny has co-authored (with Eric Mandel) Chapter 10, titled “New Rules and Evolving Standards,” in the E-Discovery Deskbook, published by Minnesota CLE. The second edition of E-Discovery Deskbook was published on February 14, 2023.
In Chapter 10, Brendan addresses the following key matters for eDiscovery practitioners:
- Pretrial Conferences
- Scheduling, Management
- Duty to Disclose
- General Provisions Governing Discovery
- Requests for Production of Documents
- Failure to Make Disclosures or to Cooperate in Discovery
- Evolving standards of Defensibility and Documenting Decisions During Discovery
Designed to be treatises on their topics, Minnesota CLE’s Deskbooks offer comprehensive instruction written and edited by the very best practitioners in their fields. Detailed narratives are punctuated by practice tips and ethical commentary; the compilations are indexed by subject and authorities. Having much longer shelf-lives than course materials, deskbooks are updated regularly.
Brendan is a sought-after speaker and writer on legal writing, eDiscovery, trial practice, storytelling, and all things persuasion. In both his case-specific work and as a thought-leader, he has worked to bridge the divide between eDiscovery, lawyers, and businesses by addressing the legal challenges where law and technology intersect across a diverse array of industries.
