Susan Wortzman

Toronto
Partner, McCarthy Tétrault LLP

Early in Susan Wortzman’s legal career, she served as a litigator who dealt with complex cases for which she had to handle millions of paper documents. This experience sparked her interest in innovation and in the deployment of technology to speed up legal processes. Wortzman founded MT>3, a division of McCarthy Tétrault that focuses on e-discovery, information governance and digital information management. In one instance, MT>3 received an urgent request to support a client investigation one Friday evening. By Saturday morning, the division had ingested 300 GBs of data, totalling 1,278,555 records, and by Monday, the review had begun. In another matter, which involved a public sector client, MT>3 developed a responsive database system within 48 hours from the client’s initial request and at no cost to the client. These examples show the division’s commitment to meeting its clients’ objectives with agility, accuracy and affordability. Wortzman’s leadership in the e-discovery community is also evidenced by her involvement in the Sedona Canada Working Group, which played a key role in the development of provincial and national guidelines for e-discovery.
