Litigation Consulting, Expert Witnesses, and eDiscovery

Technology Special Masters, Court-Appointed Experts, and eDiscovery Special Masters

Technology disputes undoubtedly add to the time and expense of litigation. Electronically stored information (ESI) is the norm rather than the exception. With the explosion of technology and the complexity of an interconnected world, courts and litigants find they often need to engage an expert in the areas of technology, data, data privacy, cybersecurity, and/or eDiscovery. So to alleviate this increasing burden on the courts, XPAN Law attorneys are regularly appointed as Technology and/or eDiscovery Special Masters by the judiciary to assist litigants and the court to resolve technology adjacent issues.

XPAN Law prides itself on reducing the burden on judicial resources through its comprehensive understanding as court-appointed Technology Special Masters and/or judicial experts. XPAN Law offers multi-layered experience in technology, software, IT security, digital forensics, and international and domestic data privacy and cybersecurity laws impacting the data involved in the dispute.

Any experienced litigator knows that the first rule of being in a courtroom is that no two cases are ever alike. Each case presents unique issues and challenges. As eDiscovery Special Masters, XPAN Law assists courts in efficiently resolving technical issues before cases get bogged down, thereby causing otherwise productive discovery to stall. Using their years of experience at both the trial and appellate levels, XPAN Law attorneys can often help resolve issues quickly by getting to the core of a disputed case to allow litigants to come to an acceptable resolution to reduce the pressures on both them and the courts.

Bankruptcy Consumer Privacy Ombudsman

In 2005, Congress made significant changes to the Bankruptcy Code by enacting the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (“BAPCPA”). BAPCPA also included a change to the way personal information could be sold in bankruptcy. Therefore, when considering the sale of consumer data, a bankruptcy court needs to consider the appointment of a consumer privacy ombudsman. Buttressed by extensive experience in bankruptcy and bankruptcy litigation, XPAN Law provides Bankruptcy Courts with an extensive understanding of how domestic and international data privacy laws and regulations impact the sale of consumer data in a bankruptcy proceeding.
