Scott Bilbrey is Covington’s Director of Litigation Support Services. He oversees technical and ediscovery services for the firm’s litigators (in addition to overseeing the litigation paralegals), and his responsibilities include counseling clients on ediscovery strategy and data management, as well as advising on technical and system issues.
Prior to joining Covington, Mr. Bilbrey was Vice President of Operational Risk at Credit Suisse First Boston in New York, where he helped to overhaul CSFB's records retention policies and procedures, and to re-engineer processes for identifying and sequestering data for prospective litigation. After CSFB, Mr. Bilbrey was Vice President of Client Services for the ediscovery vendor nMatrix (now Epiq Systems), where he headed Production and Project Management, serving leading international law firms and institutional clients.
Mr. Bilbrey began his career at Davis Polk & Wardwell, where he was the first paralegal to use modern database systems for managing case materials, and was promoted to Supervisor and Systems Analyst in Litigation Services. His experience at DPW provided a front-row seat for many landmark ediscovery matters, including the Enron matter for Arthur Anderson, which eventually led to a role as senior consultant with ediscovery pioneer, Ibis Consulting.
Mr. Bilbrey has a BA in English literature from New York University, and an MBA in finance from Columbia Business School.
