- Forensic Consulting
We assist our clients in preparing discovery requests according to Rule 34 and Rule 26(b)(2)(C) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and its state equivalents. We also provide assistance in creating an effective litigation response plan, preserving relevant data, identifying key witnesses, custodians, relevant time frames and determining keyword lists. We help our clients map their information systems and create an accurate representation of their IT infrastructure.
Litigation Database Conversions and Migrations
Having to migrate thousands of active and inactive databases from one platform to another (e.g. from AccessData Summation to LexisNexis Concordance® or Relativity®) is a challenging task. Such conversions require expert knowledge of both platforms as well as a workflow that will minimize human error through automation and meticulous quality control. Similarly, migrating a large number of databases to a different site or different servers (e.g. due to lack of available server capacity) can be tedious and error prone. We are experts in planning and executing large scale database conversions and migrations.
Legal Technology Consulting
Our experts review and evaluate software and hardware resources available to the legal community daily. We provide support in obtaining the best hardware and software systems for your organization to achieve your goals. We can help you build a litigation support department or choose the right software tools for your discovery response.
