That was the key takeaway from the recent Indianapolis Bar Association CLE “E-Discovery in Insurance Coverage Litigation.” The presentation, a panel discussion presented by the IndyBar’s E-Discovery, Information Governance & Cybersecurity Section, also offered specific practice pointers for making the most of the meet and confer.

The panelists provided three distinct viewpoints on e-discovery practice in the context of insurance coverage cases. Ryan Leagre of Plews Shadley Racher & Braun LLP represents policyholders, Eric McNamar of Lewis Wagner represents insurance companies and Ray Biederman of Mattingly Burke Cohen & Biederman has a practice focus of e-discovery.
