The discovery of information held in electronic format. Data can be subject to local rules and agreed-upon processes and is often reviewed for privilege and relevance before being turned over to a client. Our professionals follow a six-stage eDiscovery process:
- Identification: Potentially responsive digital information is identified for further analysis and review. Custodians in possession of potentially relevant information are also identified, and to ensure a complete identification of data sources, data mapping techniques are often employed.
- Preservation: Data is identified as potentially relevant is placed in a legal hold, ensuring it cannot be destroyed. Special care is taken to ensure the process is legally defensible, with the end-goal of reducing data spoliation or destruction.
- Collection: Digital evidence is preserved and transferred to legal counsel, who determines its relevance and disposition.
- Processing: Digital files are prepared for loading into a digital review platform. This phase involves extraction of text and metadata from digital files.
- Review: Documents and digital evidence are reviewed for responsiveness to discovery requests, and for privilege. PRS uses standard tools to make reviews and assessments of large groups of documents and digital evidence easy.
During this final phase, documents and digital evidence are turned over to opposing counsel based upon agreed specifications.
