  • Practice Guide
    • Data Targeting: Target More, Spend Less – Discovery costs can be reduced by reducing the volume of data that reaches review, the most costly discovery activity. To more narrowly target the right data prior to review, there are a range of tools and techniques available within each phase – before litigation, during collection and restoration, during processing, and during early case assessment and review preparation.  This practice guide reviews those tools and techniques and discusses how to deploy them to more efficiently accomplish your goals.

As always, we welcome your input regarding future topics for our webinars, articles, and white papers.  Share your interests with us here.
