Jeffrey Greene is a shareholder in the Litigation Practice in the firm’s Boston office and is Co-Chair of the firm’s global eDiscovery & eRetention Practice. Co-Chair of the Boston Litigation Department, Jeff is an experienced trial lawyer who focuses his practice on litigation and investigations that involve complex legal, factual and data management issues. Jeff counsels clients through the entire electronic records management lifecycle —from tailoring a document retention program to navigating court rules and legal decisions regarding the production of ESI. Jeff has developed programs that enable clients to meet their legal and business requirements and to take swift and appropriate action in response to requests for ESI in connection with litigation or government investigations. Jeff has extensive experience counseling hospital management companies, hospitals and medical centers in connection with the preservation, collection and analysis of electronic medical records systems.

Jeff’s experience extends not only to assisting clients satisfy their obligations to preserve and produce electronic materials, but also to defending against other parties’ efforts to take far-reaching “discovery on discovery” regarding the underlying information systems themselves. At the outset of litigation, Jeff works with clients to identify and inventory their potentially discoverable electronic resources, and then to develop reasonable and cost-effective plans for preserving data. He also advises on the selection of eDiscovery vendors, consultants and computer forensics experts.
