Harry Dorcy develops custom solutions to lead massive discovery response plans across WTO’s range of practice areas and industries, including for large federal antitrust cases involving millions of eDiscovery documents. Most significantly, Harry’s use of best practices in these matters has saved clients close to seven figures in legal expenses over the course of litigation.
As one of the firm’s lead e-discovery attorneys, Harry helps clients implement e-discovery preservation solutions throughout the electronic data recovery model (EDRM). A skilled computer programmer, Harry regularly automates custom processes to most efficiently collect, analyze, and preserve data throughout—and often before—litigation.
In addition, Harry has experience with numerous e-discovery platforms, and develops custom questionnaires and templates to interview clients in order to identify and preserve data. He also regularly assists with discovery negotiation and analysis in order to uncover relevant data.
Prior to joining WTO, Harry was a contract attorney working for multiple law firms and corporations conduction eDiscovery reviews on various complex matters across a range of practice areas and industries.
- Successfully streamlined discovery review to just 3% of all collected data in a $2.1 billion federal antitrust and labor class action challenging the au pair exchange program, saving WTO's client over $800,000.
- Collaborated with a construction industry client to build a master database and establish a set of eDiscovery processes for a portfolio of pattern litigation—before discovery even began. By spending time with the client early to gather information with an eDiscovery strategy in mind, the cases proceeded with improved efficiency, consistency, and defensibility.
- Negotiated eDiscovery terms in a bet-the-company case that is changing how the short term rental industry operates. Successfully engineered multiple databases and wrote client-custom programs and scripts to synergize millions of lines of raw database output in order to analyze and uncover pertinent information throughout the discovery process.
- Won Montana Supreme Court victory for a health system in a putative consumer class action that challenged its policy of issuing refunds in the form of pre-paid debit cards. The victory affirmed WTO's prior summary judgment win and defeated the plaintiff's new claims on appeal.
- Successfully managed the process of harvesting, filtering, analyzing, and producing electronically stored information (ESI) in numerous complex litigation matters.
