Irene Savanis Fiorentinos provides strategic and practical leadership in managing all electronic discovery phases of complex litigation. She draws upon her extensive commercial trial experience and her understanding of technology and best practices for handling electronically stored information from preservation, through collection, review, production, and trial presentation. She has been involved in several matters as electronic discovery liaison responsible for negotiating with opposing counsel electronic discovery plans and arguing before courts electronic discovery disputes, as well as managing all phases of electronic discovery for complex, multijurisdictional matters.

Irene is a leader in the Firm's electronic discovery initiatives, including evaluating new technologies and training attorneys on current judicial trends and best practices. She also frequently speaks on these topics in industry settings and regularly counsels clients on litigation-related topics such as implementation of litigation holds and document retention policies.

Having litigated as much in state as in federal courts, both at the trial court and appellate level, she has tried cases before juries and judges and is a qualified member of the Northern District of Illinois Trial Bar. She has litigated disputes, including class actions, involving claims arising from acquisitions and divestitures, environmental statutes, and complex breach of contract, indemnification, and fraud claims.

Irene has been actively involved in the Firm's diversity efforts and is on the board of the Coalition of Women's Initiatives in Law, a national organization of law firms and corporate legal departments focused on women lawyers as leaders.
