The mobile and desktop reference tool defines more than 100 terms.

CHICAGO, February 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Latham & Watkins LLP1 is pleased to announce the launch of The Book of Jargon® — eDiscovery, a comprehensive digital glossary of over 100 terms developed for the business, academic and legal communities. A handy reference tool demystifies the legal terminology, acronyms and slang of eDiscovery, a highly technical but critical capability used in most, if not all, litigation.

Defining terms from “asymmetric production” to “unstructured data”, Latham’s the latest Book of Jargon® transforms the vocabulary of this specialized field of discovery into language that is more accessible and easy to understand, especially for those grappling with the complex legal and technical challenges present in eDiscovery.

Sean Berkowitzglobal president Latham’s Complex Commercial Litigation Practice, noted: “Documents and data generated through eDiscovery are critical to any dispute, and it is imperative that litigants understand the language and terminology—not only for themselves, but also for their clients and other clients. Our practices are stacked with talented litigators and attorneys who bring a deep knowledge of the complexities and value of eDiscovery, and that knowledge has fueled the development of this handy reference tool.”
