Electronic Discovery & Digital Evidence

To meet the evolving needs of clients in today’s data rich environment, we provide cost efficient and technologically advanced discovery and litigation technology services.

Our approach

e-Discovery is often the single most significant expense in large cases. By combining the legal, technical and project management resources, we help ensure that e-Discovery is planned and managed efficiently and in a way that minimizes disruptions to our clients’ business, protects our clients from the risk of discovery sanctions and uses our deep tactical insights to turn the discovery process from a burden into a valuable cost-effective tool.

We have a unique team of experienced lawyers, paralegals and technical specialists who deliver the full range of strategic advice, counsel, representation and advocacy to those facing electronic discovery issues. We offer both full-service litigation support and targeted advice on particular e-Discovery challenges as part of a case.

While many law firms claim to have some level of electronic discovery and digital evidence capabilities, few have a sophisticated understanding of the need for practical and sound advice in this sphere or the ability to leverage the combination of law and technology to meet client needs. Our attorneys are nationally recognized professionals in the field, with years of experience in both litigating disputes and shaping the emerging rules in this area of the law.

We also have built an extraordinary technical platform that allows us to host and process high-volumes of data in-house—a differentiator that provides for maximum confidentiality, coordination and integrated response for our clients. And clients reap additional value when we use innovative predictive coding technology to increase the cost savings, accuracy, speed and efficiency of the document review process—typically one of the most time-consuming and expensive parts of litigation.

We work collaboratively with our clients during all phases of discovery, including e-Discovery planning, data collection, electronic review database design, electronic document review and production of electronic documents in both civil and enforcement matters.

We work with

  • Fortune 100 companies in the financial services, high tech, pharmaceutical and health care industries
  • Higher education institutions
  • Government entities
