Today's discovery rules often require parties in civil litigation to produce voluminous computer-generated data. We have the capability to obtain relevant electronically stored information from as few as one or two computers to complex networks with multiple computers, cell phones and iPads. Our processes allow for culling and de-duping of data to produce usable product in original format, load files, TIFF or whatever is required by the parties, while preserving useful metadata. If needed, we also can recover deleted files that should have been preserved, thus possibly avoiding costly sanctions for not having protected and produced the information as required. Recent court cases have driven home the point that simple keyword searching is insufficient. Our capabilities include concept searching, technology assisted review and Early Data Assessment. Our approach tailors the response to each electronic discovery need and we have the tools to meet each need in a cost-efficient and defensible manor.
The following image illustrates the steps in our approach to electronic discovery:
The following case summary is a good example of a large eDiscovery matter our firm handled recently using remote connections through the company's network to access and download reams of data without having to interrupt the company's business and saving the client time and money. The complex litigation matter required the client to preserve for production many thousands of documents stored on servers and over 200 laptops and desktops at its business locations throughout California. Rather than drive from location to location and interrupt the daily business functions of employees, Califorensics used state-of-the-art techniques to image drives and acquire data from one location in Sacramento, saving tens and possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars for the client, while employees went about their business unaware of the effort.
