Epiq Systems Faces Battle With Shareholder http://ow.ly/VMCcr @EpiqSystems
One of the top shareholders at the eDiscovery provider Epiq Systems on Friday said that a proxy fight for control of the board, including litigation, looks imminent.
“We’d like to get our proposed slate [of candidates on the board], but there’ll be some litigation – I’m sure,” George Young, a partner at the investment fund St. Denis J. Villere & Co. told Big Law Business. “It would be a proxy battle.”
Young added, “This is an evolving situation. I would suggest you keep an eye on the news today and Monday.”
Based in Kansas City, Epiq Systems provides managed eDiscovery services, and also works on claims administration for class actions and bankruptcy cases. Through a spokeswoman, Epiq declined to comment.

The objective of this document is to briefly define the prominent phases of the eDiscovery lifecycle, the fees associated with the different services performed at each stage if outsourced, and how they are measured. Depending on the scope and size of a matter the services provided and how they’re offered can vary significantly from case to case. This short-list is meant to provide a primer for those that have had minimal exposure to large scale discovery consisting of electronic documents and by no means is fully comprehensive of all scenarios that may be encountered.

Skills, Savvy & Something More: The New eDiscovery Project Manager
If you know hard drives, tape back-up systems and electronic data exchange protocols from A to Z, you won’t necessarily make a good electronic data discovery project manager. If you’re a legal professional, intimately familiar with the laws and regulations governing a specific issue in a specific jurisdiction, you may not make a good EDD manager, either. If you’re a 20-year veteran of corporate or law firm management and administration, you can fall flat on your face trying to manage an electronic discovery monstrosity. If you consider yourself a budgeting expert, good for you-but don’t consider yourself a shoo-in for this job.
If you’re all of the above, you still might not make it as an EDD project manager. In today’s multimillion-dollar, multimillion-document lawsuits and regulatory inquiries, the ideal PMs are a new, absolutely unique breed. [Keep Reading…]
