E-Discovery and Early Case Assessment
Navigate complex discovery and reduce your data.
No matter the size, language mix, or technical requirements of your e-discovery, we help legal teams forecast and control their discovery spend.
With 100+ offices located strategically across six continents and extensive industry experience, TLS e-discovery project managers, forensic technicians, and legal data specialists deliver fast, smart, and efficient support. Our advanced discovery management platforms deliver powerful, Big Data processing capabilities that allow you to meet stringent deadlines without sacrificing quality.
Take Control of Your Data
Electronically Stored Information
To identify, collect, and produce electronically stored information (ESI) is a substantial undertaking for e-discovery professionals. Without comprehensive processes and technologies, managing and preserving massive amounts of data is costly for law firms and corporate legal departments.
Emails, electronic documents, presentations, databases, audio and video files, social media, text messages, and websites, along with metadata (time-date stamps, recipient information, file properties, etc.), are being created from a dizzying array of sources to meet the demands of modern employees. The breadth of platforms and data sources producing ESI is forever on the rise, as well as the scope and volume of data connected to litigation and investigations.
TLS knows that speed, scale, and smarts are imperative to efficient ESI management. To deliver extremely powerful processing capabilities around the clock, we invest heavily in our data experts, technology, industry-leading applications, data hubs, and production centers with state-of-the-art equipment.
Reduce Your Spend
Early Case Assessment
When it comes to managing e-discovery costs, the first cull is one of the most important stages. It affects downstream costs of hosting and document review—and document review can account for up to 73% of total e-discovery costs. With Pre-Review Analytics®, you will significantly decrease your data volume at the onset of your case.
TLS’s proprietary ECA technology, Digital Reef, is one of the most powerful tools on the market, capable of reducing data sets by more than 95%. Digital Reef’s interface puts the power in the hands of your case team, and not just the legal technologists. Our versatile platform can be installed on-site at your facility or securely hosted in our data centers around the world.
