What is eDiscovery? A Beginner's Guide

If you are new to eDiscovery, we have you covered. eDiscovery is short for electronic discovery. This refers to the process in which electronic data is sought, located, secured, and searched with the intent of using it as evidence in a civil or criminal legal case.

As you can probably imagine, the vast majority of documents needed in litigation today exist in electronic format. In fact, there’s an estimated 40% of these documents that are never even printed, and you better believe that the number is on the rise.
