eConsulting and Strategy Planning for Electronically Stored Information
Like-Minded Plaintiff eDiscovery Experts
In class action lawsuits and multidistrict litigation, electronically stored information as part of discovery has become the norm, not the exception. To be able to most efficiently review voluminous computer files and documentation, plaintiffs must draft discovery requests to receive the data in its native file format. Defense teams will resist production requests specifying native files. As a firm specializing in plaintiff eDiscovery services, we can help you overcome these challenges.
You are Entitled to Receive eDiscovery in Native File Format
Using our “Expert Systems” for automated issue coding (also called predictive coding) makes a huge difference to plaintiffs’ counsel in terms of cost, quality and time spent for high-volume document review projects. To be in a position to benefit, defendants’ electronically stored information (“ESI”) productions must be in a format that our eDiscovery experts and analytics team can work with. This requires a specific electronic format that federal eDiscovery rules and case law entitle you to have. But usually, you will have to fight to get it.
Defense teams often leverage what they perceive to be plaintiffs’ counsel’s lack of electronic data discovery sophistication as they describe incredibly complex defendant computing environments. They will claim that your requests are burdensome, unnecessary and impractical, or they will invoke a myriad of exceptions that they declare appropriate to their circumstances. ILS has been there and helped our clients to overcome these challenges to their rightful defense production discovery and formatting requests allowed by law. ILS provides electronic discovery attorneys as well as IT specialists in infrastructure, database and corporate computing environments. We work with you side-by-side from the inception of the matter.
