July 2024 - MALSP Meeting - Defining and Managing Cloud Attachments and Hyperlinks


Cloud Attachments, Modern Attachments, Hyperlinks. We have all heard these files referenced in various ways. Join Alison Shier from Lighthouse as she helps to define this modern data source, explore considerations around preservation, versioning and collection, and discuss workflows that can be implemented during downstream eDiscovery when this source is in scope. Then, hear concrete examples from your peers at DaVita and Xcel Energy as Dayna Munsch and May Lee join us for a brief panel to share their recent experiences with this data source.


Alison Shier, Senior Director of Client Solutions & Success, Lighthouse

Alison is a seasoned eDiscovery professional with a career spanning almost 15 years. Alison began in Arnold & Porter’s antitrust group where she managed day-to-day eDiscovery for complex DOJ and FTC second requests and antitrust litigation. After leaving the firm, she went on to work for a global eDiscovery provider. Within 2 years, she became one of ten National Account Directors. In this capacity, Alison was responsible for overseeing delivery for one of the largest global financial institutions and was charged with building and refining their eDiscovery program and playbook.

Alison has spent the last 8 years at Lighthouse, where she serves as Senior Director of Client Solutions and Success. Alison’s chief role is to guide corporations and law firms through the evolution of their eDiscovery programs. Alison advises on a wide array of topics ranging from Information Governance to the implementation of insourced technology, to the application of Review Intelligence. Over the years, Alison has earned a reputation for architecting innovative solutions from the deployment of novel M356 modern attachment workflows to her role in helping clients adopt predictive and generative AI-based solutions.

Alison is not just a practitioner but also an industry thought leader and community member. She regularly serves as an expert speaker on industry panels; including most recently EDI’s 2023 conference where she led a discussion around agile review workflows that integrate Large Language Models. She has also been featured on the podcast Law & Candor where she described the nuances of managing complex data sources exported from Google Vault. Most recently she was considered for potential 2025 ranking by Chambers. She is a member of Lighthouse’s WLEAD Employee Resource Group which supports the growth, advancement, and inclusion of women. She has served as a mentor in the WLEAD Mentorship program, assisting others at Lighthouse in achieving their career goals. She is a member of the New York City chapter of Women in eDiscovery (WiE).

Alison graduated from the University of Michigan. During her time there, she served as a Research Assistant to Professor Daniel Katz at the Centre for the Study of Complex Systems at the University of Michigan Law School. She later served as a Research Fellow to Professor Jane Dutton at the Ross School of Business.
