"E-discovery" is the term used to describe the process by which electronically stored information is addressed in a legal matter. A great deal of any lawsuit or investigative matter is devoted to finding relevant information. People don't communicate by formal letters anymore. They send emails. They text. Nor do they store important documents in file drawers. They keep things on their hard drives. Or a shared server. Or in the cloud. The explosion of electronically stored information presents special challenges in any lawsuit, and our team at Bell, Davis & Pitt is equipped to meet such challenges. Drawing on our years of experience in the field, and our knowledge of the many e-discovery tools and products available, our attorneys can fashion just the right solution to efficiently handle any type of case
