David specializes in assisting clients with complex data issues and implementing and executing best practices, particularly in high-profile litigation and regulatory matters.

He has extensive experience in the area of electronic discovery (eDiscovery) with a focus on the processing, collection, review, and production of electronically stored information. He has led teams in securing and processing data in a forensically sound and defensible manner and has worked with his clients to develop efficient solutions to review the potentially responsive data sets.

Currently, David is a leader in the use of predictive coding and other technology-assisted review tools in large-scale eDiscovery projects. Prior to joining AlixPartners, LLP, David worked at Navigant Consulting as part of the technology solutions practice.

Key Engagements:

  • Managed FCPA investigation for a multinational organization.  The project required the oversight of more than 75 contract attorneys reviewing documents in English, Spanish, and Russian.  Leveraged text analytics across the full lifecycle of the project to identify foreign languages, categorize documents for review, and thread email communication.  Managed migration of documents from the investigative team’s workspace to separate outside counsel workspace.  
  • Provided consulting and project management services for a government contractor in a significant DOJ investigation.  Oversaw collection of multiple data sources from more than 65 custodians.  Utilized a secondary deduplication process to remove duplicate emails.   Developed predictive coding workflow to identify documents for quality control review and secondary screen for key documents.
  • Organized the review of a collection universe exceeding one petabyte of data.  The AlixPartners team reduced the potential review universe to 2.5 TB and 20 million documents.  The population was further culled through the use of validated search terms and continuous active learning to review only 160,000 documents.
  • Led numerous internal and government investigations containing chat-related data from corporate and mobile messaging platforms, including WhatsApp, Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Facebook.
