Our E-DTS team has experience with cases involving voluminous discovery, as well as smaller matters. We work to negotiate cost-sharing, to prevent spoliation issues, and to employ protocols that reduce costs in all phases of electronic discovery, including collection, analysis, processing, review and production. When appropriate, we employ technology assisted review tools (including predictive coding) to reduce costs. In addition, we proactively counsel clients on records management and litigation readiness policies tailored to their business to minimize long-term risk and reduce unnecessary costs. Team members are frequent contributors to publications and conferences on electronic discovery issues, and they played a leading role in the recent revision to the Western District of Washington’s local rules relating to electronic discovery.
Our E-DTS Team has experience and partners with sophisticated litigation management and presentation software including Relativity, Digital WarRoom (DWR), Concordance, Summation, Casemap and Trial Director. In addition, depending on the size and complexity of the matter, we partner with numerous outside vendors such as Kroll Ontrack, Recommind, DTI and others. Our intranet allows attorneys and paralegals to share documents easily and efficiently, and we offer clients the option of a custom-built extranet from which to review and manage documents in real time.
Our E-DTS Team offers counseling and advice in the following areas:
Development, implementation and auditing of document retention policies and procedures to ensure compliance with state and federal law, minimize long-term risk and reduce unnecessary costs.
Proactive development, implementation and auditing of defensible internal electronic discovery policies and procedures, including the development of litigation hold, document collection and preservation, and document review and production protocols.
Management of the electronic discovery process at every stage of litigation in state and federal courts regionally, nationally and internationally. This includes providing advice regarding meet and confer obligations; offensive electronic discovery strategies; and the use of vendors and state-of-the-art software to streamline the document collection, review and production process. We also work in cooperation with national and/or in-house counsel, and provide services as special electronic discovery counsel in cases and investigations where clients and other law firms require specific electronic discovery services and counseling.
Utilizing our in-depth knowledge of a wide range of software and innovative, emerging technologies, we advise clients on how to efficiently and effectively sort through and review large amounts of data to find electronic documents and information specifically related to topics that are the subject of government inquiries or internal investigations.
