We at Exterro know how the summer months can make being productive at work even harder than usual, especially when dealing with e-discovery issues. But, with the right music or playlist, it can make you more efficient and help the summer days breeze on by. With that in mind, over the the summer months Exterro employees will be sharing with you their own summer playlist/mix tape (us, more well seasoned folk know what this means) that can hopefully keep you sharp and focused while you're at work.  We've even embedded the Spotify playlist at the bottom...

Of course you do have a defined process. No e-discovery professional worth his or her salt would be satisfied with a reactive fire drill every time litigation or an investigation started. But if you're just getting started on your e-discovery journey, check out our Comprehensive E-Discovery Workflow Guide for some recommendations to help you get started. And if you'd rather just have a laugh, you can always visit our entire catalog of E-Discovery Memes and Cartoons, and feel free to share the fun with friends and colleagues to celebrate another successful week!

No one wants to be accused of being "vague, overly broad, and unduly burdensome," least of all an e-discovery professional. But, according to judges, those terms appear all too often in connection with e-discovery motions and objections. Make sure you're avoiding these sorts of tongue-lashings, and the associated risks of sanctions, by making sure you're following the courts' guidance on e-discovery matters by downloading our recent case law white paper, The Essentials of a Defensible Legal Hold Process. But of course if you're just interested in a chuckle, you can always visit our entire... Read More

Everyone in e-discovery knows that the most expensive phase of any project is document review... but if you think that it has to be that way, you haven't really looked at the cost savings you could achieve during review by implementing some simple best practices, like early case assessment to cull down data before you send it out to review. Learn some best practices for ECA in Exterro's Beginner's Guide to Early Case Assessment...

Coming out of the holidays, you've probably spent a fair bit of time describing e-discovery to your friends and family. It might have left you a little stunned for those first few days back in the office, but if you need help shaking off the rust and getting back to work, why not check out some New Year's Resolutions for E-Discovery Professionals?

Friday Funnies: Exterro's E-Discovery Meme Series (Legal Hold Bicyclist Edition)

Created on October 26, 2018


Creative Manager at Exterro

There aren't many tasks that you can't solve with a little ingenuity, like our bicyclist here. He'll get where he's going, but the trip is going to take longer, be more hard work, and a lot riskier than if he had an actual bicycle wheel up front. The same is true of legal hold management. You can muddle through with spreadsheets and emails, but it's going to take longer, require a lot more effort, and the risk of a mistake (like lost data) is going to be higher. There is a better...

If you're using the right technology, it doesn't really matter how big a database you're pulling from for e-discovery--you've got it covered (at least as far as collection goes). You'll have it all under control, just like this classic flight attendant! And you can take a step in the same direction, if you download Exterro's Comprehensive Guide to E-Discovery Collection. And if you'd rather just have a laugh, you can always visit our entire catalog of E-Discovery Memes and Cartoons, and feel free to share the fun with friends and colleagues to celebrate another...
