If the case involves Electronically Stored Information (ESI), in Federal, and most State courts, you have to follow the rules governing E-Discovery. Indeed, the courts not only expect you to know the rules, they expect you to oversee the ESI collection and management activities of your client.
In-house litigation support comprises differing functions among medium size law firms. For some it is a team of paralegals providing some level of first pass review. For others it is a complete department of personnel and applications supporting in-house review. What it typically does not include is an experienced Electronically Stored Information (ESI) consulting team that is involved from the outset in case planning and strategy.

Any one of these events can put your firm in a position requiring the preservation and production of electronically stored information (ESI).

Large law firms frequently have significant litigation support resources in house. Many times they also have e-discovery savvy attorneys. What is not common is OnlineSecurity’s 17 years of accumulated end to end experience touching on all aspects of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) and beyond. Even less expected is a focus on cost containment based on effective project management and the reduction of unnecessary data volumes.
