Electronically Stored Information (ESI) Agreements, Orders, and Protocols in eDiscovery
Formalized eDiscovery agreements or orders/protocols are highly advisable in document intensive cases. Our process for ESI agreement/order development covers all the critical details to stay ahead of the curve and avoid potential pitfalls. A properly planned and negotiated eDiscovery ESI agreement can streamline electronic discovery and avoid unnecessary disputes, eliminate case delays, and reduce ediscovery costs. Failure to handle these sometimes technical but important issues can lead to frustration, higher costs, embarrassment, and ultimately the inability to obtain key evidence in your case. ESI Agreements can sometimes be negotiated as part of the Rule 26 (f) ‘Meet and Confer’ process in federal court. In such cases, having a model agreement can help focus the Rule 26 (f) discussions. Even outside of the Rule 26 framework, such an agreement can be helpful in any complex case. Our CEDS certified eDiscovery Specialists are available to assist in drafting and reviewing ESI agreements, orders, protocols, and specific production requirements.
