How e-discovery works
- Counsel and client determine where potentially relevant evidence may be stored. The custodians of this evidence are identified.
- Data identified as potentially relevant is preserved quickly. This generally is done by notifying custodians that the evidence in their possession must be preserved. A legal hold often is put in place.
- All the potential evidence is gathered in one location to be processed, to determine which portions actually contain relevant evidence.
- Data is reviewed and evidence is documented in a forensically sound manner, including metadata preservation, to assure information is not lost or altered. We avoid duplication and reduce large data sets to the relevant material.
- Once irrelevant or duplicate data is eliminated, the relevant data is documented in a clear, precise report. This evidence is admissible in court or at deposition.
