Ariana J. Tadler pioneered the development of an e-Discovery Practice Group while at a prior plaintiffs’ firm with which she was affiliated for 23 years.

We routinely assist clients and other law firms in navigating complex issues.
Why e-Discovery Is So Important for Litigation
Storing most data electronically has changed pretrial discovery and document processing in general across the legal industry and those it serves. Electronic records are the focus of and at the center of most active forms of complex litigation in modern times. That, along with the high volume of data that needs to be exchanged among parties and collaborated on between co-counsel, has led to increased obligations for all parties with regard to e-Discovery. Both litigation and information management within law firms have been directly and significantly impacted by technological changes and the corresponding adjusted expectations of all involved.
Tadler Law’s e-Discovery practice group is led by industry pioneer Ariana Tadler, who has hands on experience developing workflow processes, technology, systems, and even input into the rules governing e-Discovery practices nationwide. Her depth and breadth of experience, along with her tenacity to stay current and knowledgeable as both legal and technology issues evolve surrounding these practices, make her uniquely qualified to help her firm’s own clients as well as work with other law firms and businesses on their e-Discovery processes and procedures. And, while many large firms have a team of professionals, Tadler Law distinguishes itself by offering comparable skills at much more accessible and affordable rates with a leaner team.
