Jason Priebe

Jason Priebe is senior counsel in Seyfarth Shaw's Chicago office and is the Midwest regional manager for Seyfarth's eDiscovery and Information Governance (eDIG) group. Mr. Priebe is licensed to practice law in Georgia and Illinois. His current practice focuses on issues involved in electronic discovery preparedness, planning and execution, as well as information privacy, information governance and data security. He routinely provides legal consultation and advice to several large and diverse corporations and organizations regarding the design and implementation of electronic discovery programs, including the development of policies and procedures for efficiently and defensibly preserving, collecting and producing electronically stored information (ESI). His experience includes serving as an in-house counsel for the nation's largest publicly traded property and casualty insurer, where he advised on issues involving litigation hold administration, information management, and electronic data discovery process and policy.

Mr. Priebe has extensive litigation and jury trial experience in a broad range of substantive areas, including individual and commercial insurance claims, subrogation and insurance coverage disputes. Since 2005, his practice has focused on eDiscovery, corporate compliance and information governance. His eDiscovery litigation experience has ranged from intellectual property and commercial cases involving a small number of data points and data custodians, to nationwide multi-district and class action cases involving several hundred individuals, complicated multilayered structured active and legacy database and storage environments, and many terabytes of potentially relevant information. He has also managed and coordinated ESI preservation and productions on behalf of several large corporations in response to regulatory agency and law enforcement investigations and informational requests.

Mr. Priebe frequently speaks on topics involving the practical application of eDiscovery standards in the reality of modern information storage and messaging environments, including storage and archival strategy, cloud computing, social networking, enterprise search, and record retention and content management solutions. He is a member of the Sedona Conference, and a participant in the Sedona Working Group on International Electronic Information Management, Discovery and Disclosure and the Chicago chapter of ARMA International.
