Carrie is the chair of Hilgers Graben’s e-discovery division, HG Edge. She leads HG Edge’s talented team of document reviewers and oversees the coordination and execution of all aspects of e-discovery, including document preservation, collection, review, and production for complex and sensitive litigation matters and regulatory investigations.
Carrie has extensive knowledge of and experience with document review technologies that make the document review process faster and less expensive. More importantly, Carrie has pioneered custom workflows and techniques that drive down review costs and increase efficiency and consistency.
She also has extensive experience working with the lead law firms in significant governmental investigations providing contextual analysis, document summaries, and witness interview preparation collections. No matter the scale, scope or subject matter of the document review, Carrie focuses on conducting a smarter and better review for considerably less than either document review vendors or big law firms.
Carrie currently lives in Omaha with her husband and four children.
Carrie successfully led a team in the review of emails from the top leadership of a major company in a $1 billion commercial dispute.
With her team, Carrie completed an expedited review of over 900,000 documents in under 60 days, in which the team did the entire scope of work (including first-pass review, second-pass review, analysis, redactions, privilege-log creation, and production) on time and under budget, coming in at about 30% of the cost of vendor quotes for first-pass review.
Carrie also led a team completing a substantive first- and second-pass review of hundreds of thousands of documents relating to an internal investigation.
