Jill E. Sterbakov

Jill E. Sterbakov is an associate in Morgan Lewis's eData Practice. eData is an innovative practice group founded by Morgan Lewis to address the impact of electronic data on business and legal strategies. Formerly known as Legal Logistics, eData helps clients meet increasingly demanding regulatory and legal requirements with cost-effective prelitigation risk management, eDiscovery consulting, and document review.

We partner with in-house legal, IT, and records-management teams as well as outside technology vendors to apply best practices, inside and outside litigation. We offer start-to-finish litigation management, from litigation holds and data preservation, to negotiations with opposing counsel, to discovery motion practice, depositions, and trial support. We are a national team with both West Coast and East Coast capabilities.

Our emphasis is on giving practical, real-world advice and services to clients. Combining legal experience with technological know-how, eData brings all aspects of electronic data and records management—which traditionally have operated independently—together in one shop. This critical link drives strategic thinking, collaboration, and problem solving. Our industry-leading “best practices” guide clients to meet eDiscovery obligations in ways that minimize cost and maximize quality.

The eData Practice plays a large role in defending clients in corporate matters, including product liability, mass torts, antitrust, M&A, regulatory, white collar, compliance, construction, insurance coverage, and complex commercial litigation.

Prior to joining Morgan Lewis in the fall of 2004, Ms. Sterbakov worked in securities class-action and corporate litigation, as well as in securities and corporate transactional work. She has also served as an adjunct professor at the Beasley School of Law of Temple University, teaching legal writing and research to law students.

Ms. Sterbakov received her J.D., cum laude, from Temple University, Beasley School of Law in 1996 and her B.A., magna cum laude, in communications from Temple University in 1992.

Ms. Sterbakov is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania.
