As a multibillion dollar industry, electronic discovery has become one of the largest litigation expenses for law firms and companies. Despite its growing significance, lawyers and litigation support professionals frequently find themselves unprepared to successfully handle the myriad issues surrounding the discovery of electronically stored information (ESI). Not only do the attorneys need to have an understanding of the rules and procedures, but so do the company executives, IT personnel and the litigation support professionals who work closely with them on a daily basis.
