Electronic Discovery, also known as e-discovery or ediscovery, is the electronic aspect of the discovery phase of a legal proceeding such as lawsuit or investigation. It involves the identifying, collecting and producing electronically stored information (ESI) that is requested. ESI includes electronic evidence including emails, documents, presentations, databases, instant message chats, voicemail, audio and video files, social media, and websites.
The process of e-Discovery services is complex. It goes beyond collecting physical materials. It usually involves a large volume of dynamic data. Electronic documents often include metadata, time date stamps, author and recipient information, file properties, duplications, and more. The preservation of these pieces from electronic documents creates special challenges to prevent intentional, reckless or negligent withholding, hiding or destroying of evidence. Withum’s CFI/e-Discovery team understands the challenges of e-Discovery technology services and the importance of preventing spoliation.
