The selection, collection and review of data, especially in litigation involving a significant number of custodians, often contributes the greatest single cost to the litigation process. Sherman & Howard’s e-discovery team helps clients find and preserve critical data, economically and efficiently, and avoid the harsh potential sanctions of spoliation of evidence. Working with clients’ legal, regulatory, business and information technology units, we help implement cost-effective and defensible processes that support accurate and efficient data preservation, collection and storage; effective “meet and confers” with opposing counsel; e-discovery vendor selection; and efficient attorney review. We also guide our clients through critical decisions involving strategy for data search as well as relevance and privilege review, weighing whether such reviews should be undertaken by an in-house team, contract lawyers or off-shore providers.
