ESI Preservation and Collection services
Welcome to Law & Forensics eDiscovery ESI Preservation and Collection services. Our team is dedicated to using defensible methodologies to identify, preserve, and collect Electronically Stored Information (ESI) from various sources, including email, social media, and cloud applications. Our services include Legal Hold Implementation and Management, Targeted Data Collection, Forensic Data Collection, and Social Media and Cloud-based Data Collection.
Legal Hold Implementation and Management
We understand the importance of legal hold implementation and management in the eDiscovery process. We help clients implement legal holds in a timely and defensible manner, while also assisting in managing legal holds and ensuring they are updated and released when necessary. For example, we assisted a large multinational corporation in implementing legal holds and managing compliance across all involved parties. As a result, our client was able to avoid costly sanctions and achieve a favorable outcome in the litigation.
Targeted Data Collection
Our team specializes in targeted data collection, which involves collecting ESI that is relevant to a particular legal matter. We have experience collecting ESI from various sources, including computers, servers, laptops, and mobile devices. We use advanced techniques to collect data efficiently and accurately while minimizing disruption to the client’s business operations. For example, we assisted a small business owner in identifying the relevant ESI and conducting a targeted data collection from the employee’s computer and email accounts. As a result, our client was able to successfully defend against the claims, and the lawsuit was dismissed.
Forensic Data Collection
Our team also offers forensic data collection services, which involve collecting ESI forensically soundly. We use specialized tools and techniques to ensure that the collected data is authentic, complete, and has not been altered. For example, we collected forensic data from a client’s manufacturing systems and identified a defect in the manufacturing process that caused the alleged issues. As a result, the case was settled before trial, saving our client significant litigation costs.
Social Media and Cloud-based Data Collection
We understand that ESI can be stored in a variety of locations, including social media and cloud-based applications. Our team has experience collecting data from platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. We also have expertise in collecting data from cloud-based applications such as Microsoft Office 365, Google Workspace, and Dropbox. For example, we conducted a social media and cloud-based data collection for a large financial holding company facing a regulatory investigation involving potential violations of anti-money laundering laws. We identified key evidence that supported our client’s compliance efforts, and the investigation was closed with no sanctions imposed against our client.
