Michael Conner

Thoughtful and Creative e-Discovery Expert, Solutions Architect and Forensic LeaderNightOwl DiscoveryConnectContact

I come up with creative, cost effective solutions for clients that require either, proactive or reactive assistance managing their Electronically Stored Information. I have nineteen years of experience in the collection, processing, and production of ESI. Throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity to work in almost every facet of the EDRM, however, my primary focus remains in the area of electronic discovery, database analytics, and forensic acquisition. I’ve worked with domestic and international law firms as well as the legal departments of national and multinational companies. I have operated in the capacity of an ESI consultant and/or expert in over a dozen Federal and State litigation matters from within a law firm and on the vendor side. In addition, I have authored white papers and published articles on various topics related to e-Discovery and ESI. I’ve spoken individually, on panels and as a moderator in the areas of e-Discovery and ESI process, protocol and best practices.
