Athena Forensics provide eDiscovery and eDisclosure services to law firms and corporate clients within legal proceedings and investigations throughout the UK.
Our team of digital forensic experts are able to acquire data stored on a device, including mobile phones, computers, servers and cloud based storage and extract that data and provide it to our clients within a secure online platform for review. Our eDiscovery experts are then able to document the work conducted and, where required, present any evidence that has been produced in Court.
eDiscovery and eDisclosure comprises of the identification, collection and production of electronically stored emails, documents, databases, audio, video and image files, along with others, in response to a request for production in legal proceedings.
Due to the amount of data and the types and the volatility of the devices upon which it can be stored, sometimes eDiscovery digital disclosure can become a complex process and should be handled in the correct manner to ensure that it is not altered or lost so that any results can be relied upon in court.
Any potentially relevant data identified during the eDiscovery process is collected and extracted. It is then indexed and placed into a database that are then filtered based upon the case requirements and the potentially relevant data is then hosted in a secure environment and made accessible to reviewers who assess the documents for their relevance to the proceedings.
When producing the relevant documents following the eDiscovery process they can be converted, if required, so that they can be viewed externally and any privileged and irrelevant data removed so that it can then be provided to the parties for use within the proceedings.
ediscovery has become a standard part of civil litigation and is necessary to ensure that any documents or communication that may be relevant in a dispute are disclosed to the parties involved to ensure that all relevant evidence is considered within legal proceedings and within internal cases and disputes such as harassment.
Lawyers can be under pressure to provide accurate and relevant information from large amounts of data within short timescales. The keywords used to identify relevant material as well as the types of information being sought can be critical to ensuring that large amounts of irrelevant data is not produced from an eDiscovery process.
The eDiscovery experts at Athena Forensics can be on-hand and provide continual consultation to ensure that the scope of the project, including the information being sought and the methods used to identify that data, are the most suitable for the required outcome for the legal team involved.
