Jackson Lewis has the expertise and personnel necessary to guide clients through all types of electronic discovery projects, including the most complex. Our e-Discovery team of lawyers, paralegals, and litigation support technicians work with Jackson Lewis clients to efficiently handle all aspects of electronic discovery while complying with legal obligations and managing costs. Jackson Lewis is focused on developing bottom-line driven best practices that serve the special discovery needs and burdens of employment litigation.
At Jackson Lewis, we believe that effective planning, e-discovery budgeting, and management are key components of the discovery process. We work with clients to estimate and project costs and to develop proactive case strategies. Our goal is to satisfy all document retention and production obligations without imposing an undue burden on our clients. Where appropriate, an e-Discovery team member is assigned to cases to facilitate cost-effective strategies and communication with our client’s information technology professionals.
Our ability to access and use the latest technologies, and to marshal teams of attorneys and paralegals from over 49 locations across the country, gives us a competitive advantage in tackling burdensome document review projects in class action and other complex litigation. However, when it is more efficient and cost effective to use outside vendors, we work with clients to make an appropriate choice. We have national pricing agreements in place with select vendors and have successfully leveraged our firm’s size and complex litigation caseload to negotiate competitive pricing for electronic discovery work. We also work closely with specialized vendors for forensic collection and analysis, document imaging and full-text extraction,and electronic discovery processing and printing.
In addition to assistance during the course of litigation, Jackson Lewis helps employers develop electronic information retention and destruction policies, employee technology and electronic communication policies, Internet and Social Media policies and formalized litigation hold procedures that take into account each client’s organizational structure, technological capabilities and firm culture.
