Big data shouldn't mean big problems.
- Discovery motion drafting: we’ll help you navigate case law and best practices with the aim of minimizing the “back and forth” gamesmanship and "discovery about discovery."
- Custodian surveys and interviews: the two biggest drivers of downstream costs are the numbers of custodians you collect from and the amount of data you collect from each. Effective early strategy can result in massive savings.
- Legal hold management: data collections should be targeted more surgically, but preservation should take a broad scope. We draft legal hold notices and manage the program during ongoing disputes so you don’t have to juggle Excel sheets internally.
- Meet and confer process: Rule 26(f) of the FRCP outlines the responsibilities of each party to ensure discovery is handled in a time and cost-effective manner. This may include agreeing on a list of custodians, the types of data to be collected, the time-frame for data collection, search terms, review methodologies, the format in which documents will be produced, and more. We help facilitate this process to avoid a lengthy and expensive motions dispute.
- Expert testimony: Our unique perspective as both litigators and eDiscovery practitioners allows us to connect the dots in a holistic way. We provide expert testimony for any phase of the EDRM in state and federal courts.
- eDiscovery counsel: When the size, complexity, or unique demands of a matter require an additional layer of support, we engage as eDiscovery counsel through our relationship with Mattingly Burke Cohen & Biederman, LLP.
