The acceleration of technology and explosion of data has rewritten the rules for traditional discovery. eDiscovery (electronic discovery) is increasingly recognised as an important aspect of the litigation process, by the justice system as well as prosecution and defence, but its complexity brings with it many challenges across resources, time and accuracy.
Sifting through huge volumes of data to locate the relevant documents or records is one of the biggest challenges facing the industry today. Mobile devices such as iPads and smartphones have also disrupted the eDiscov- ery industry by creating multiple touchpoints through which information is accessed, collected and stored.
When it comes to litigation and disputes, urgency is paramount. As deadlines tighten and data proliferates, this will only get worse.
So what can you and your internal and external clients do to get on top of eDiscovery and deliver better outcomes, faster and with less resources?
