Friedman Kaplan integrates state-of-the-art e-discovery management into every litigation plan. Each member of our fully dedicated in-house e-discovery team has earned the Certified E-Discovery Specialists credential from the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists, the preeminent international organization for e-discovery professionals worldwide. They provide and manage services for all phases of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM).
At the inception of each matter, the team works directly with clients and attorneys to map out an effective e-discovery response plan, providing clients with a predictable budget and minimizing the risk of spoliation. After executing a defensible and cost-effective document collection, we move the documents through the data culling, review, and production phases utilizing leading software to generate early case assessment statistics. We then use those statistics to formulate a document review and production plan. Depending on the matter’s size and scope, we host data in-house, with the client’s vendor of choice, or with one of our preferred vendors, each of which are evaluated and chosen to assure premium service at a reasonable price. Our e-discovery experts then work hand-in-hand with our attorneys through document batching, review, tagging, redaction, quality control review, and production.
We regularly handle collections and productions of millions of documents from both domestic and international clients, and working with our vendors provide seamless access to our document databases to our own attorneys, contract attorneys, and clients wherever they may be located.
Our investment in industry-leading expertise creates effective, efficient, and winning e-discovery protocols for matters large and small.
