E-discovery – the process of preserving, retrieving, reviewing and producing electronic documents – has become integral to most litigation proceedings. We recognize that it can be a daunting task to disclose and review all relevant documents, particularly given the voluminous number of emails and data that most organizations produce on a daily basis.
Our e-Discovery team exists to help clients navigate the e-discovery process as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. We have the resources to manage the efficient production of applicable materials, and we know how to prioritize the review of relevant documents. We also ensure that our clients’ proprietary, privileged and privacy-protected information is not improperly disclosed.
Our e-Discovery team works seamlessly with our top litigators to ensure that we strategically mount your best case and aggressively litigate it. We also work with our clients on the document management, providing advice and reviewing policies to make sure their information is easily accessible while being stored safely.
