Extensive experience sets us apart. With more than 20 years of experience in eDiscovery, we've developed data preservation and discovery plans, harvested terabytes of data, negotiated search terms, handled motions for protective orders and sanctions. We've reviewed and produced more than 100 million pages of hard copy and electronic documents and written privilege logs bigger than "War and Peace." We're comfortable shepherding e-discovery in any matter—from a simple response to a third-party subpoena for a local company to complex, multi-district litigation involving multinational corporate giants. Our experience includes:

In a federal court action involving antitrust and copyright infringement claims, we collected, reviewed and produced more than 80 million pages from a Fortune Global 100 business technology company’s worldwide locations.

In a federal court civil rights action, we served as a Special Assistant Attorney General to design, implement and defend a discovery plan that involved the collection of more than 1 million pages from multiple locations.

In price-fixing class actions in 15 states, we developed a litigation and discovery management system for 6,900 plaintiffs, 100 complaints and over 1 million discovery documents.

For several international manufacturers, we serve as national discovery counsel and have developed systems for timely and accurate discovery compliance throughout the U.S.

Alternative pricing models and budgets are nothing new to us. Because we’ve managed more than 100 discovery projects, we are uniquely able to provide you options at each discovery stage, explain the cost/benefits and help you select the best plan.

One-size plan does not fit all so we work with you to match your specifications for budget and timing and to select the right services for your situation. While we offer a full range of discovery and record management services, we are available as your full-time discovery counsel or for a specific project.

Our eDiscovery facility is a dedicated facility equipped with dozens of computer stations networked to high-speed printers and multifunction devices. More specifically, 64-bit Microsoft servers provide 12 Terabytes of storage with data mirrored to redundant servers that are backed-up daily. We can use any review platform including Summation, iConnect and Relativity and we own 150 licenses for in-house document review projects.

Employee education and training is crucial to controlling discovery risks and costs. We understand that the best policies and procedures aren't worth the files they're stored in unless employees understand and execute them properly. Our team works with human resources, IT and legal departments to develop and implement effective records management and litigation readiness policies and we offer tailored employee education and training. We’ve worked with numerous industries as well as state agencies and trade associations.

Consistent counsel has many advantages. It’s a real partnership. Issues and discovery often overlap from one case to the next and our familiarity with the company’s business allows us to locate and produce the relevant discovery consistently and efficiently, which reduces both litigation risk and expense.
