Jeffrey J. Fowler

Jeffrey Fowler is a partner in O'Melveny's Los Angeles office and is one of the founders and leaders of the Firm’s Electronic Discovery and Document Retention Practice. Jeff is one of the longest-serving eDiscovery litigators in the country and one of the few whose practice is entirely dedicated to eDiscovery issues.

Over the last decade, Jeff has contributed his eDiscovery expertise to well over 200 Litigation Department matters in virtually every area of practice. The most notable example is representing Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. in its civil antitrust lawsuit against Intel Corporation. In what is considered one of the largest eDiscovery cases on record, Jeff helped negotiate several precedent-setting stipulations designed to limit the otherwise infinite amount of electronic evidence in the possession of the parties and the computer manufacturers, retailers, and distributors subpoenaed in AMD v. Intel. As the case proceeded, Jeff also helped to litigate the many evidence preservation, collection, production and spoliation questions spawned by Intel’s disclosure of email preservation issues.

Jeff’s entire practice involves serving as the lead lawyer responsible for eDiscovery issues in complex class actions and multidistrict litigations. In these matters, he successfully limits the scope and cost of discovery by negotiating favorable document preservation and production agreements, manages defensible and cost-efficient data collection and review processes, appears before judges and magistrates to address eDiscovery issues, takes and defends depositions of IT representatives and eDiscovery consultants, and litigates cutting-edge eDiscovery issues.

Jeff is a noted speaker and writer. He is a regular panelist for Strafford Teleconferences and is the co-author of the practice guide entitled, "Preserving Electronic Information: A Practical Approach," BNA Books (2009).
