Sharon Nelson and John Simek from the Legal Talk Network’s Digital Detectives podcast recently interviewed Excel Esquire’s Ben Kusmin about the pitfalls (and opportunities) faced by lawyers when handling their clients’ Excel spreadsheets. Among other things, we discussed native review of spreadsheets, turning them into deposition or motion exhibits, the challenges of redacting spreadsheets, and the importance of getting Excel files produced in native format. I also gave my take on the Wells Fargo inadvertent disclosure incident, and explained how Excel competence can be part of the lawyer’s duty of technology competence.
