What I enjoy most about my e-discovery practice is that regardless of what the issues are in a case, I have the opportunity to help clients find the people and documents that will tell their side of the story in the courtroom or to an investigative agency and help them achieve a successful outcome.
Jill Bindler is the firm’s go-to advisor on all aspects of E-Discovery in litigation and investigations involving complex, high-volume document production obligations. Leader of the firm's E-Discovery Practice Group, she guides litigation teams and client's legal and IT departments through every phase of the E-Discovery process, from document preservation and collection to review and production. Jill’s goal is the same in every case – provide an accurate, cost-effective process to reduce responsive documents to a more manageable size, while also helping clients maintain compliance with all E-Discovery legal and ethical requirements, including compliance with protective orders, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements and protecting information covered by attorney-client privilege and work product protection.
Jill regularly works with clients to guide them in implementing an appropriate Data Retention Policy, Legal Hold Protocols, and to prevent internal loss of data or spoiliations issues.
An accomplished trial lawyer, Jill achieved favorable results in numerous complex commercial litigation and patent infringement matters before deciding to focus primarily on E-Discovery. She has been dedicated to pro bono service throughout her career and continues to represent indigent defendants in federal court through her service on the Criminal Justice Act Panel.
