Litigation Readiness & Legal Hold

Epiq consultants have deep experience in helping law firms and corporations shape, implement, and manage electronically stored information (ESI) and other data to ensure litigation and legal hold readiness. We bring clarity to the process and the confidence of reliable advanced planning.

An effective litigation readiness and legal hold plan, well implemented, increases the chances of a successful litigation or settlement. A strong plan helps manage case costs, while decreasing the chances of lost data, time, or advantages in a case.

Epiq works with legal and IT stakeholders to determine the most efficient and cost effective approach to issuing legal holds, including evaluating and implementing third party legal hold solutions. For organisations with processes already established, an assessment is performed and recommendations for process optimisation are provided (along with an implementation road map).

For organisations not sure where to start with building out an eDiscovery program, or for those who are wondering if their current approach is adequate, Epiq’s eDiscovery and litigation readiness assessment is a valuable resource to help identify major risks and take action to remedy them.

Epiq can design a detailed workflow to aid legal, IT, and business staff respond to discovery in a minimally disruptive, yet defensible fashion. Our legal, IT, and forensic experts create detailed process diagrams and outline how to perform and execute discovery.

A critical element of managing ESI or responding to discovery requests is knowing where your data is, how it’s being managed, and how to preserve what you need to keep. Epiq will map your IT systems and data repositories and provide a summary of essential facts that will reduce risk and cost and enhance efficiencies.

Relativity legal hold automates issuing, tracking, and releasing legal holds. No software is required as the service is delivered via the internet on a monthly subscription basis. Full audit trail and reporting are included to establish defensibility of process.
