He also seeks to ensure that his clients and attorneys avoid legal SANCTIONS for eDiscovery violations.

EARLY CASE ASSESSMENT

PenrodEllis FDD contributes to eDiscovery Early Case Assessments. Mr. Penrod works closely with his clients and their attorneys to:

Identify custodians, computers, & peripheral/ removable storage drives


Collect & preserve client ESI


Assess client's ESI for relevance


Filter known files (called deNISTing) to eliminate unneeded data


Cull potentially relevant ESI for duplicates, custodians & time frame boundaries


Extract metadata from partition directories, file tracking records, & internal data streams


Prepare potentially relevant ESI for attorney privilege review

DOCUMENT PRODUCTION

PenrodEllis FDD can produce the following types of ESI for eDiscovery in either native or static ESI formats:

Network- and/or computer-hosted email messages & attachments


Web-based email, chat, and/or text messages


Office documents, spreadsheets, databases, and/or graphical presentations


Digital photographs & movies


Multimedia (audio/video) files


Web pages visited by user


Metadata generated by file systems, operating systems, & application programs

Electronic Discovery is both a legal and technical process. As a technical process it involves information management; the identification of custodians and sources of ESI; the use of forensic write-blocking hardware and imaging software to preserve and collect ESI; and the forensic recovery of potentially relevant computer evidence. The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) below provides an excellent overview of eDiscovery phases and workflow. It provides a flexible, extensible and internationally accepted framework for the electronic discovery process.

The EDRM diagram represents a conceptual view of the e-discovery process, not a literal, linear or waterfall model. One may engage in some but not all of the steps outlined in the diagram, or one may elect to carry out the steps in a different order that shown here. The diagram also portrays an iterative process. One might repeat the same step numerous times, honing in on a more precise set of results. One might also cycle back to earlier steps, refining one’s approach as a better understanding of the data emerges or as the nature of the matter changes. The diagram is intended as a basis for discussion and analysis, not as a prescription for the one and only right way to approach e-discovery.
