Discovery and E-Discovery
Discovery is disclosure of relevant documents and information by the parties to each other in a lawsuit, and can take three different forms: written discovery, requests for production of evidence, and depositions.
E-discovery is the disclosure of electronically-stored information in its native format. Presenting and producing electronically-stored information is no longer optional. Businesses are expected to preserve emails and electronically-stored documents, and keep detailed records. An inability to produce these when requested will undoubtedly result in sanctions.
Our attorneys can navigate the pitfalls that arise in presenting, preserving, and producing discovery and e-discovery. As with everything we do at Policastri Law Firm LLC, we follow a systematic approach:
- Determine the scope of discovery
- Collect and preserve the data
- Process, review, and analyze that data
Our experienced attorneys also understand what is not considered discoverable, such as confidential conversations, private matters, and privacy rights of third parties. It is important to remember that discovery is a very complicated process and warrants the assistance of an experienced architectural and engineering lawyer to ensure that you are protected.
