In an article published on Dec. 12, 2017 in the Financial Times, Columbia partner John D. Martin discusses how the Firm is rethinking its approach to e-discovery in an effort to keep corporate litigation costs down. The Firm was able to save money for one of its clients, health insurer Anthem, because it used e-discovery for several cases at once, lowering costs by about $50 million.
