Honigman's e-Discovery and Information Management Practice Group advises clients on the effective management of electronic information, both inside and outside of the courtroom. The proliferation of electronic information, and the variety of devices and quickly evolving technology that generate that information, has created an intricate network of resources and risks for companies and management. Honigman’s e-Discovery attorneys help clients create solid business practices and information management and retention strategies, in concert with compliance and risk management programs, to best position clients for the future. Should that future include litigation, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience required to guide clients through the often complex e-Discovery process.
For pre-discovery information management, Honigman counsels organizations on creating legally defensible document retention policies and processes that heighten compliance, save time, reduce costs and provide potential strategic advantages should litigation ever occur. Our team evaluates technology infrastructures; develops effective and consistent document retention and destruction policies; establishes employee technology and communications policies, including social media guidelines; and develops protocols for responding to future e-Discovery requests, including formal litigation hold procedures.
Should litigation or a subpoena response become necessary, our attorneys provide clients with efficient and cost-effective solutions for navigating e-Discovery obligations. Whether our clients have systematically prepared for e-Discovery previously or whether they are addressing it for the very first time, we work to ensure effective compliance with discovery requests while also minimizing any resultant client business disruptions. We work with you to tailor the e-Discovery process to the particulars of your case.
Honigman's e-Discovery Practice Group makes it a priority to stay abreast of the ever-changing landscape of practices, emerging case law, procedural rules and document review technologies to better counsel and advise clients on the most effective business strategies for their specific circumstance.
