ESI in the form of electronic documents, e-mail, voicemail, instant and text messages, databases, digital images, multimedia files and file metadata is increasingly relied upon as evidence.
The advances in computer technology have made it easy for individuals and businesses to produce large volumes of ESI and the means to duplicate and store it on various devices. Lawyers are challenged to trawl through large volumes of ESI in order to find relevant information for their case. LitSupport’s eDiscovery platform brings large volumes of ESI under control quickly, accurately and cost-effectively.
