Complex Litigation & Discovery Center
Steptoe’s Complex Litigation & Discovery Center (CLDC) provides innovative, efficient, and cost-effective solutions to help clients handle and meet the ever-growing demands and challenges of their e-discovery obligations, including the legal review of documents and electronically stored information (ESI).
Established in 2003 in Rockville, Maryland, Steptoe’s CLDC has been producing high-quality results for its clients for more than a decade by utilizing a team of experienced lawyers and other professional staff dedicated to working on a broad range of e-discovery issues for clients across a number of different practice areas, including, but not limited to:
- Antitrust and Hart-Scott-Rodino compliance
- Transactional due diligence projects
- White-collar criminal defense
- Internal investigations
- Government subpoenas and investigations
Steptoe’s CLDC associates and staff of highly-trained professionals bring a wealth of e-discovery experience and subject matter expertise that comes from the successful hands-on management of more than 200 document reviews and productions for the firm’s clients. Every client document review is managed by an experienced Steptoe CLDC associate who serves as the “project manager” for the duration of the review. As an established firm-managed facility, the CLDC also offers clients the benefit of having Steptoe—as their outside counsel—maintain and apply its best practices and operational controls over the document review process. Mike Bergeron, of counsel with Steptoe for more than 12 years and operations director of the firm’s CLDC, has more than 34 years of legal and management experience and previously ran corporate legal departments and served as a senior executive in operations capacities. Mr. Bergeron is joined by Patrick Tofilon, who serves as the CLDC’s lead associate and has more than 10 years of experience handling complex litigation and managing discovery matters.
