Professional E-Discovery

 

E-discovery is one of the most important parts of litigation, due to the amount of electronically stored information (ESI) involved in most cases. If your e-discovery process is not efficient and thorough, evidence can be lost. Using an e-discovery provider that is able to customize the e-discovery process to your needs is the most important step to ensuring your e-discovery is successful.

 

At DIFSECO, we offer comprehensive e-discovery services. We not only support e-discovery collection from standard sources (laptops, desktops, workstations, servers, mobile devices, etc), we can also support collection from non-standard sources like “the cloud” (Box, Dropbox, Amazon Web Services S3, Microsoft Office 365, and Google Drive). We also offer Website Preservation Services. Don’t let critical evidence slip between your fingers because your e-discovery doesn’t include every location that potential evidence could be stored.

1. Identification

3. Collection

4. Processing

5. Review

Counsel and client determine where potentially relevant evidence may be stored. The Custodians of this evidence are identified. Relevant date ranges are also often identified, to ensure that the process of e-discovery does not become overwhelming.

Preservation is the process of ensuring that data identified as potentially relevant is preserved properly and in a timely fashion. This is generally done by notifying custodians that the evidence that is in their possession must be preserved. Often, a legal hold is put in place.

This process involves gathering all the potential evidence into one location so that the data can be processed to determine which portions of it actually contain relevant evidence.

This step in the process involves reading the data for review. Evidence is extracted. It is important that this process occur in a forensically sound manner, including metadata preservation. It is very important that metadata is never altered, as this information can often prove the validity and authenticity of evidence. DIFSECO provides de-duplication to eliminate redundant information, as well as advanced “near-duplication” removal. To do this, we consolidate similar content to the smallest possible set, significantly cutting time and money spent for review. Often, we can eliminate up to 50% of email and document repositories, radically optimizing the document review process.

This is the most important step in the e-discovery process. We can help you complete extensive, in-depth searching and culling in the most efficiently possible manner. Often, as much as 90% of collected ESI can be non-responsive (irrelevant). To ensure that the evidence that you process is only the most relevant ESI, we take out irrelevant content programmatically, while at the same time identifying content that is most likely relevant.
