Robin E. Stewart

Robin Stewart is the founder and Chair of Lathrop & Gage’s eDiscovery, Data, Records and Information Practice Group. She counsels clients in all aspects of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model, from data retention to collection, review and production, including outsourcing options, early case assessment and vendor selection. In her capacity as eDiscovery counsel, Ms. Stewart manages data and production projects for clients utilizing both onshore and offshore capabilities in matters involving terabytes of data, encompassing both technology assisted review and manual production by hundreds of reviewers. Ms. Stewart is well-known in the national eDiscovery community as a thought leader through her numerous articles, alerts and speaking engagements on the all aspects of eDiscovery. The National eDiscovery Leadership Institute was the brainchild of Ms. Stewart, who sought to create a forum for the scholarly discussion and debate of electronic discovery issues and to foster cooperation among the bench and bar to proactively address eDiscovery legal topics before they become intractable disputes. Ms. Stewart is also an active member of the Sedona Conference Working Group 1, which is the leading "think-tank" on eDiscovery. Ms. Stewart’s greatest asset to clients, however, is her common sense approach to eDiscovery matters, which is derived from her thriving commercial litigation practice encompassing the financial services, life sciences and technology industries, including defense of product liability matters, ADA and TCPA litigation. In her own practice, Ms. Stewart "walks the walk" by implementing the very eDiscovery approaches about which she speaks and writes.
