Maureen O’Neill leads DiscoverReady’s marketplace presence in the Western and Midwestern United States. She advises clients in the development and execution of effective, cost-efficient discovery strategies, including the use of statistical sampling, predictive coding, and other analytics and automation tools.
Prior to joining DiscoverReady, Maureen was a partner at Paul Hastings LLP, where she represented Fortune 100 and other multinational companies in complex employment litigation, including class and collective actions. Maureen developed unique experience in the production of data from complicated, voluminous databases such as human resources information systems and operational databases, and in using statistical analyses of those data in employment litigation. Maureen also co-chaired the Firm’s E-Discovery Practice Group. In that role, she advised clients on various e-discovery issues, such as identifying and inventorying sources of electronic information, drafting legal hold notices, and developing protocols for document collection, storage, and management. She also consulted internally with attorneys at the Firm on e-discovery issues, and helped develop best practices for litigators engaged in e-discovery practice.
Maureen speaks and writes frequently on significant issues in e-discovery, and she participates actively in the Sedona Conference Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production.
