Matt Gibson leads the firm's litigation technology department, collaborating with attorneys and clients on all technical matters related to electronic evidence – in discovery and at trial. With more than 14 years at the firm, Matt has assisted with e-discovery since before the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure recognized the challenges presented by electronically stored information. He consults on projects relating to litigation readiness, data preservation, forensic collections, defensible data reduction, document review and production, evidence analysis and evidence presentation at hearings. With an eye toward cost containment and appropriately applying proven – yet new – technologies to litigation, Matt ensures that the firm's litigators offer innovative and effective solutions to clients grappling with the volume, complexity and expense of electronic evidence.

Matt oversees the firm's vendor relationships and collaborates with clients' preferred vendors. 

He and his team have managed hundreds of technical matters with the majority involving document review and production. Many have involved complex e-discovery during bet-the-company litigation for clients large and small. Representative projects include:

  • Litigation Readiness Plans – preparing technical plans for clients' legal and IT teams to reference once a duty to preserve data might have been triggered. 
  • Complex Data Preservation – helping attorneys develop a plan for a hospital client to preserve its entire revenue management infrastructure – both hardware and software – without interfering with continued business operations.
  • Assisted Review Technologies – helping attorneys use continuous active learning (CAL) technology, and its "predictive coding" predecessor, to identify key documents within data dumps from adversaries – and to prepare our own clients' document productions. In one matter, we used CAL with an offshore-review team to locate more than 86% of our client's relevant documents while only reviewing 50.2% of the corpus. 
  • Trial Presentation – helping manage the creation of demonstrative animations to support a successful motion to dismiss punitive damages; assisting with evidence presentation during numerous jury and bench proceedings in federal, state, local jurisdictions, both judicial and administrative venues.

Matt has certification from the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS)
