Identification

BlackStone Discovery’s highly skilled consultants will assist you in identifying key information regarding the scope, breadth and depth of electronically stored information that might be pursued during discovery. They take into consideration any claims and defenses, preservation demands, disclosure requirements and discovery demands. Starting with a larger pool of potentially discoverable electronically stored information, they assess how much should be preserved and collected to be used with successful impact during depositions and negotiations with opposing counsel or as critical factual elements underlying the key allegations in the case.

Preservation

We understand the importance of preservation, which is why at BlackStone we ensure that electronically stored information is protected against destruction or alterations.
