People

Ronni Solomon co-leads our E-Discovery practice and focuses exclusively on e-discovery issues.  She has been ranked in Chambers USA 2013-2019 and in Chambers Global 2013-2019 as one of the nation’s top lawyers in e-discovery litigation practice.   According to Chambers USA, Ronni was "praised as a great negotiator and strategist" and "an expert in her field and it shows.  She is never caught off guard by a question and has a wealth of real-world expertise to back up her legal advice."  Chambers also noted that Ronni "acts as e-discovery counsel for an enviable roster of clients, bringing substantial experience and expertise to government investigations, class actions and multidistrict litigation." 

Ronni was also recently identified as an e-discovery Leading Lawyer in the inaugural 2019 edition of Legal 500, 1 of only 7 lawyers to receive that distinction.  She was also recognized in the E-Discovery section of Who’s Who Legal: Litigation 2017-2019.  Ronni is also an adjunct professor on e-discovery at the University of Georgia School of Law.

Ronni has significant experience managing e-discovery in crisis litigation that spans multiple regulatory, investigatory and civil matters and helping clients ensure that e-discovery does not become a costly sideshow.  A certified Project Management Professional (PMP), Ronni uses her experience and skills to ensure that e-discovery activities are run cost-efficiently, defensibly and consistently.  Ronni also serves as National E-Discovery Counsel for large corporations and works with clients on information governance and defensible deletion issues. 

Ronni is actively engaged in e-discovery thought leadership.  She was a member of the Steering Committee of Working Group 1 of The Sedona Conference on Best Practices for Electronic Discovery and Records Management.   She sits on the Advisory Board of the Georgetown Law Advanced E-Discovery Institute.  She also is Chairperson of the International Legal Holds Brainstorming Group for Working Group 6 of the Sedona Conference, International Electronic Information Management, Discovery and Disclosure, which focuses on international issues relating to disclosure, cross-border discovery, and privacy.   She is a member of the Nominations Committee for First Chair, an organization that recognizes achievements of in-house counsel.

Ronni co-authored a chapter, “Predictive Coding from the Defense Perspective:  Issues and Challenges,” for a 2016 ABA book titled Perspectives on Predictive Coding and Other Advanced Search Methods for the Legal Practitioner. She also co-authored a chapter of the Federal Judges’ Guide to Discovery titled “The Roles of Rules 26(f) and 16(b) in Active Judicial Management of Discovery Challenges,” published by the Electronic Discovery Institute (EDI).  She was Co-Senior Editor of The Sedona Conference’s Social Media Primer; the Steering Committee Liaison of the Sedona Conference’s Commentary on BYOD: Principles and Guidance for Developing Policies and Meeting Discovery Obligations paper; and she assisted in drafting a model Rule 502(d) order that appeared in the Fordham Law Journal.

She was appointed by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Batten to be on a committee to provide recommendations regarding amending local rules to address e-discovery issues, was co-chair of the Electronic Discovery Subcommittee of the Pretrial Practice and Discovery Committee of the Litigation Section of the American Bar Association and is the former Director of the Atlanta Chapter of Women in E-Discovery. 

Previously, Ronni was a corporate discovery specialist for one of the largest e-discovery companies in the industry. In that role, she advised in-house counsel of large corporations on electronic discovery strategies. She applies the knowledge she gained on the vendor side to help clients select the most efficient e-discovery tools and strategies, significantly reducing their total vendor and review costs.
