– iDiscovery Solutions, Inc. (iDS), an award-winning, legal technology and information governance expert services firm, announced today that Senior Managing Consultant Charlie Platt will co-present timely and informative CLE’s for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) in February. PBI is the continuing legal education arm of the PA Bar Association.  The in-person sessions of “Practicing Law in the Cloud,” will take place from 9:00 am to 12:15 pm in Mechanicsburg, PA, on Feb. 10, Philadelphia, PA, on Feb. 17, and Pittsburgh, PA, on Feb. 26.  The CLE will also be simulcast live on Feb. 10 in multiple PA locations, with the added ability to participate via a live webcast, if preferred.


The CLE will examine the Cloud’s impact on the law in general and preserving confidentiality. Although Cloud computing has been around for a few years, it is still not fully understood by many attorneys. While new technology offers new ways for lawyers and their clients to communicate, it also poses unique problems for preserving confidentiality. The way that we communicate is changing, but the privilege rules are the same. The faculty will also discuss how amended Rule 37(e) of the FRCP effects e- Discovery of Cloud data and the ethics surrounding the Cloud.


Mr. Platt has more than 25 years’ experience consulting on data analytics, e-Discovery, digital forensics, cybersecurity, incident response and electronically stored information (ESI). He has worked on projects ranging from large scale forensics investigations to highly complex intellectual property and systems analysis cases in the legal and e-Discovery industries. Mr. Platt has developed websites, applications and utilities for a variety of corporate needs and has managed comprehensive, multifaceted collections, both in the

U.S. and internationally. He is a Certified Ethical Hacker, a Microsoft Certified DBA and holds certifications in C/C++, Infrastructure and Networking.


Mr. Platt will be joined on the panel by Don Myers, Partner and member of Littler Mendelson P.C.’s eDiscovery team, and Stuart Claire, Director of Practice Technology Services at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney P.C.

“I’m thrilled to be speaking alongside Don and Stuart for the Pennsylvania Bar Association,”said Mr. Platt. “The Cloud is where data resides for many companies today. When litigation arises, being prepared for Cloud-based challenges, including knowing where data truly resides and how to protect it for discovery, is vital in our electronic information-heavy world. This CLE will help all litigators prepare for the advantages and pitfalls that surround the Cloud and the law.”


The educational session has been approved the Pennsylvania CLE Board for 2 hours of CLE credit in substantive law and 1 hour of ethics. To learn more and sign up, please visit
