Electronic Discovery (eDiscovery) is the process of collecting, reviewing, and producing electronically stored information (ESI) via the litigation discovery process.  ESI refers to any information held in a digital format, such as:

  • E-mail messages
  • Spreadsheets
  • Documents
  • Presentations
  • Text messages
  • Instant messages
  • Social media

Organizations may wonder whether or not it makes sense to handle eDiscovery in-house or use a third-party service that has the tools and specialized skills for it.  There is a lot to consider, such as the organization’s size and its tolerance for risk, as well as whether the efficiency, quality, speed, and costs of either option meets key business objectives.
