E-Discovery

We live in a digital world. Information is easily created, stored, and shared – opening businesses to growth opportunities while also exposing them to substantial risks. Knowing what data you need to preserve and produce, as well as how you should review and analyze your data, can suddenly become costly questions when you are faced with litigation. Poorly-managed document productions and outdated records management policies can not only weaken your case, but result in extensive discovery costs that could have been minimized or avoided entirely. Even worse, failing to comply with discovery obligations raises the possibility of monetary or case-terminating sanctions. No matter where you are in the e-discovery process – from updating retention policies to implementing litigation hold procedures to responding to document production requests – we can help.

Our significant experience covers all stages of e-discovery. We have planned and managed cost-effective document review projects in a variety of cases, including complex commercial cases for Fortune 100 companies, international arbitration disputes, and in litigation brought by federal and state government agencies related to the Clean Air Act. We have used diverse staffing models and workflows and the latest legal technology, including review software developed with our guidance, to fit specific projects, improve quality and control costs. In addition, we regularly advise businesses before litigation arises on their maintenance and preservation of corporate records and electronic data and their evaluation and implementation of e-discovery processes and technology solutions.

We recognize that each business has different needs, philosophies, and capabilities. By drawing on our experience, we collaborate with you to assess what e-discovery strategies make the most sense for your situation. When feasible, we begin with a proactive approach to information governance tailored to meet your objectives, minimize your risk, and respect your budget. If litigation arises, we work with you to develop a defensible discovery plan that is proportional to what is at stake, fulfills your discovery obligations cost-effectively, and finds key documents efficiently – so that you can stay focused on the merits of your case.

Whatever your needs may be, we can help you through the e-discovery process from start to finish.
