Electronic discovery

Forensic IT specialists provide timely assistance in preparing for disputes and legal proceedings through the collection, review and preservation of electronic communications.

Overview

The volume and frequency of electronic communications keeps expanding. The ability to secure cost effective electronic discovery (e-discovery) is critical. At Ferrier Hodgson we recognise that e-discovery is now a common legal procedure for the collection and review of electronic and paper-based documents for litigation and other legal purposes.

  • Subjective document review
