Expert Analysis. Big Savings.

Strategic Insights that Cut Cost

BlackStone’s team of eDiscovery and forensic experts can provide insights into and analysis from ESI before the cost of discovery becomes burdensome. Early Litigation Intelligence (ELI) reports give our clients strategic insights that enable them to understand the scope of discovery, so that an effective case strategy is developed early on. These reports cut downstream costs associated with processing and review, as well as ensuring our clients retain all relevant case information while optimizing the eDiscovery process.

Proportionality at your fingertips

Most eDiscovery customers pay too much because of irrelevant data being loaded on to expensive processing and review platforms. At BlackStone, we’re committed to providing cost effective solutions for our clients by targeting the right data, so that you can defensibly streamline your data set without sacrificing a full preservation.
