Overview

Paul serves as the firm’s National eDiscovery Counsel. In this position, he and his team of lawyers and Litigation Support Project Managers, as well as Littler’s National Data Center, service the eDiscovery needs of the firm’s clients and lawyers practicing in Littler’s offices across the globe.  Paul provides focused guidance on electronic discovery matters, ranging from case and client-specific advice about meeting preservation obligations, to addressing initial "meet and confer" obligations, to handling court appearances that address eDiscovery matters, to taking and defending depositions of IT personnel and experts, to developing strategies for efficient and effective data harvesting, protection, review and production, to implementing cost-shifting and reduction strategies, with a particular emphasis on high-exposure Rule 23 class and FLSA § 216(b) collective actions,

eDiscovery is one of the most important and transformational legal developments in recent years. It has become a $200-billion-a-year industry and a legal subspecialty in its own right. Littler is one of the first firms in the country to hire attorneys at the shareholder level dedicated exclusively to managing eDiscovery worldwide, reinforcing the firm's commitment to providing its clients with leading-edge solutions in this rapidly developing area. (More information about Littler's eDiscovery Team can be found on the eDiscovery practice page.)

Paul is a nationally recognized thought leader in the area of electronic discovery. He has lectured and published extensively in the area of eDiscovery, including in the American Bar Association's Litigation Journal and the Section of Litigation's Employment & Labor Relations Law Newsletter, ALM's National Law Journal and Law Technology News, and BNA's Digital Discovery & E-Evidence®.  (More detail about recent speeches and publications can be found in the “Publications and Press” and “Speaking Engagement” tabs on this page.)  His work has served to educate lawyers, judges and business people about the technical and legal issues governing electronic discovery, and was cited by the landmark opinion of Zubulake v. UBS Warburg LLC, 220 F.R.D. 212, 220 n. 39 (S.D.N.Y. 2003) (Scheindlin, J.). Paul serves as the permanent co-chair of the Advisory Board for the Georgetown Law Advanced eDiscovery Institute® and on the Steering Committee of the Sedona Conference® Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production (WG1).  He is also actively involved in the Sedona Conference’s Working Group on International Electronic Information Management and Disclosure (WG6).

Paul has served as a court-appointed eDiscovery Special Master for the U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, a court-appointed Discovery Master for the Court of Common Pleas First Judicial District of Pennsylvania, and is on the inaugural roster of eDiscovery Special Masters for the U. S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. Paul is one of a select group of attorneys that is ranked by Chambers USA and Chambers Global in the category of Litigation: eDiscovery - Nationwide.

Paul is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and has handled cases in many jurisdictions nationally.

In addition to his deep substantive knowledge in the constantly evolving field of eDiscovery, Paul has practical, hands-on experience that comes from litigating scores of cases in today’s digital age. Prior to joining Littler, Paul was a litigation partner at an AM LAW 100 law firm, where he focused his practice on complex business litigation and served as trial counsel in jury and non-jury trials, as well as large commercial arbitrations. His trial experience enables him to bring a practical and cost-effective perspective to what can otherwise appear to be esoteric eDiscovery issues that can hijack a case, and to never lose sight of the fact that the goal of all discovery, including eDiscovery, is to win the case.

Paul is also a member of the Firm’s Innovation Counsel, that is tasked with reengineering the traditional practice of law to bring to clients cost-effective and forward-thinking solutions that employ leading-edge technology, project management skills and alternative pricing strategies.

Outside of his law practice, Paul is an extremely active member in the community, the bar and pro bono organizations, serving as an officer on boards of directors of several organizations, including the Temple American Inn of Court and breastcancer.org.
