eDiscovery

“eDiscovery” has come to mean much more than electronic discovery – it is commonly used to refer to the collection, processing, management, analysis and production of any evidence collection that includes ESI (electronically stored information).

Gathering ESI for further use in the electronic discovery process.

Preservation

Ensuring that ESI is protected against inappropriate alteration or destruction.

Review

Evaluating ESI for relevance and privilege.

Processing

Reducing the volume of ESI and converting it, if necessary, to forms more suitable for review and analysis.

Analysis

Evaluating ESI for content and context, including key patterns, topics, people and discussion.

Production

Delivering ESI to others in compliant forms.

Presentation

Beyond eDiscovery, displaying ESI before audiences (including at arbitrations, hearings and trials), to elicit further information, validate existing facts or positions, or persuade an audience.

eDiscovery Software

elaw uses a suite of software tools, including commercially produced software and custom developed applications. For hosted review and analysis, we deliver expert support via Delium, Nuix Discover or Relativity software. We recognise that matters, firms, clients and evidence collections have different requirements and that one size does not fit all. We will always take the time to recommend the best fit for your team and matter – it’s part of the elaw difference. You will also find us flexible. Whether you’re looking for support at every step, or want to take control yourself, we’re happy to work your way.
