Adam’s practice focuses on discovery and information governance. As part of Shook’s Data and Discovery Strategies group, Adam advises clients on best practices for preservation, collection, processing, review and production as part of the discovery process. He has experience in preparing and negotiating protective orders and production protocols, as well as opposing “discovery on discovery” efforts. 

Adam volunteers with The Electronic Discovery Institute, a nonprofit organization that studies litigation processes and produces educational programs for the benefit of the federal and state judiciary. He spearheads EDI’s Spoliation Guide, a 50-state case survey intended to aid practitioners who need more information than they can find in a case law primer, whether to prepare for a strategy session with outside counsel or a client or a meet-and-confer with an adversary.
