Eliminating E-Discovery Over Collection

This whitepaper debunks popular myths surrounding e-discovery collection and offers practical advice for developing a targeted collection strategy that substantially reduces ESI volumes while preserving counsel’s ability to meet e-discovery obligations.

Over-collection of data in e-discovery is a common problem that leads to exorbitant processing and review costs. In most cases, over-collection stems from a misinterpretation of judicial standards, needless fear of evidence spoliation and resulting sanctions, or failure to fully leverage more advanced, targeted collection technologies.

This white paper explores the over-collection issue, analyzing each of the factors that drive this common, yet unnecessary, e-discovery practice.

You will learn:

  • How courts interpret the principle of “proportionality" in e-discovery and how that translates to data collection expectations
  • The important distinction between preservation and collection and how each contributes to a defensible process
  • Five simple best practices and technology considerations for reducing e-discovery collection volumes and creating a targeted collection strategy
