Our Litigation Technology Strategy
Quality Litigation Technology Services at a Substantial Savings
E-Discovery is not just a buzzword. E-Discovery is Discovery, and at Zelle Hofmann we know that providing our clients the highest quality legal services includes harnessing state of the art litigation technology to sift through massive volumes of electronically stored information (ESI) during discovery and trial preparation.
Traditionally, clients and law firms have turned to E-Discovery vendors for ESI processing and hosting services. Enormous vendor costs and the inefficiencies inherent in vendor services led Zelle Hofmann to build a better mousetrap. By investing in experienced E-Discovery professionals and innovative systems, Zelle Hofmann now offers a highly cost-effective litigation technology service alternative to the traditional dependence on vendors.
Scope of Services
While Zelle Hofmann works with its clients and co-counsel in handing all aspects of E-Discovery, as shown in the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) below, the firm focuses its internal litigation technology on handling ESI after it has been identified, preserved and collected.
In addition to offering in-house litigation technology solutions, Zelle Hofmann works with clients and co-counsel to engage the best litigation service providers in the industry for outsourcing whenever appropriate. Zelle Hofmann’s National E-Discovery Counsel, Eric Mandel, provides leadership and practical guidance with advanced workflows to take the greatest advantage of all available technology as a case moves through the discovery lifecycle.
