Professional e-Discovery

E-discovery is one of the most important parts of litigation due to the amount of electronically stored information (ESI) involved in most cases. If your e-discovery process is not efficient and thorough, evidence can be lost.

Our e-Discovery services help to handle the technical and strategic challenges presented by electronic discovery needs or requests.

Don’t let critical evidence slip through your fingers because your e-discovery doesn’t include every location where potential evidence could be stored.

Stages of the E-Discovery Process

Step 1. Identification

Counsel and client determine where potentially relevant evidence may be stored. The custodians of this evidence are identified. Relevant date ranges are also often identified to ensure that the process of e-discovery does not become overwhelming.

Step 2. Preservation

Preservation is the process of ensuring that data identified as potentially relevant is preserved properly and in a timely manner. This is generally done by notifying custodians that the evidence in their possession must be preserved. A legal hold is often put in place.

Step 3. Collection

This process involves gathering all the potential evidence into one location so that the data can be processed to determine which of its portions actually contain relevant evidence.

Step 4. Processing

This step involves reading the data for review. Evidence is extracted. It is important that this process occurs in a forensically sound manner, including metadata preservation. It is very important that metadata is never altered as this information can often prove the validity and authenticity of evidence. DFC provides de-duplication to eliminate redundant information, as well as advanced “near-duplication” removal. In order to do this, we consolidate similar content to the smallest possible set, significantly cutting time and money spent for review. Oftentimes, we can eliminate up to 50% of email and document repositories, radically optimizing the document review process.

Step 5. Review

This is the most important step in the e-discovery process. We can help you complete extensive, in-depth searching and culling in the most efficiently possible manner. Notably, as much as 90% of collected ESI can be non-responsive (irrelevant). Therefore, in order to ensure that the evidence processed is only the most relevant ESI, we take out irrelevant content programmatically while identifying the content that is the most likely relevant.
