    E-discovery can range from gigabytes (and even, on rare occasions, terabytes) of information in a nationwide class action to a thumb drive full of emails for a typical single-plaintiff case.

Kirila, co-chair of the Squire Sanders E-Discovery & Data Management Team, discusses why employment cases require greater attention to potential cost-saving measures, as well as a common sense look at the proportionality of the cost and benefit of electronic discovery.  She notes some recent cases that provide additional direction on guiding clients through e-discovery and helping them deal with electronically stored information.
