eDiscovery: Data, Records and Information

Lathrop Gage LLP is at the forefront of emerging trends in eDiscovery. Our team of experienced lawyers and technical specialists provide sophisticated, yet practical and sound advice. We leverage law and technology to meet client needs appropriately for any size matter.     

Client Focused. We collaborate with clients to understand their objectives and reduce the risks and costs associated with all phases of litigation. One size does not fit all clients, cases or matters. We help clients select appropriate preservation, collection, culling, review, and production strategies and resources. We do not build a super highway where a country lane will do. At the same time, we aggressively pursue key information from our clients’ adversaries through the use of targeted discovery approaches, effective negotiations, strategic depositions, and motion practice.   

Litigation Tested. In addition to managing all of the various steps of data preservation and collection of electronically stored information (ESI), we have experience in managing large-scale reviews of ESI nationwide. These client engagements include onsite document review, oversight of document review conducted by outsourced onshore and offshore locations, and internally processed and hosted review. 

Our knowledge base includes working relationships with multiple vendors and LPO companies. Our experience and relationships allow us to provide the highest level of responsiveness, service, and solutions for our clients while saving our clients millions of dollars through strategic price negotiations and partnerships. As a case matures, we are prepared to utilize emerging software packages to manage depositions, exhibits, trial preparation, and electronic documents in complex litigation.

Our experience in these matters extends to the courthouse and the courtroom. Our pioneering work in negotiating eDiscovery protocols and various adverse party agreements set the stage for significant cases around the country. If disputes are not resolved amicably, our lawyers are ready to litigate eDiscovery disputes of all varieties. 

Consultation Ready. We also offer stand-alone eDiscovery advice and technical expertise outside of the litigation setting. Litigation preparedness through a proactive and integrated approach to eDiscovery has become an economic necessity. Our decades of legal and technical expertise assist clients with advance preparation for litigation holds, electronic information management and document retention. 

Authoritative. Our attorneys frequently speak nationwide on matters involving eDiscovery and technology issues. We welcome the opportunity to meet with your organization to discuss your data management and/or eDiscovery needs regardless of how big or small the matter.
