What is eDiscovery?

eDiscovery is the general term for the process of preserving, collecting, processing, reviewing, and producing electronic material for disclosure in litigation. eDiscovery technology and processes are often used in other situations where large volumes of data need to be analysed quickly, for example: regulatory investigations, cyber breaches, or data subject access requests.

A successful eDiscovery project will combine specialist technology platforms which can process and present data for review by a team of lawyers, with expertise in using the technology effectively and defensibly. eDiscovery is often the most expensive part of litigation, and there is huge demand for strategies which are cost-effective, and which can manage the increasing number of data types which are stored by organisations.
