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
