E-DiscoveryTranscending Paradigms

As technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, making sense of the data and obtaining better information faster has become critical in litigation and a vital part of e-discovery. Kilpatrick Townsend’s dedicated LitSmart E-Discovery® Team provides end-to-end e-discovery solutions, using the most sophisticated technology in-house, managed by experienced legal and technical professionals. By eliminating outside vendors, we can handle all of your e-discovery needs in a defensible, efficient, and cost-effective manner, while maintaining valuable institutional knowledge of a client’s data systems, major players, and protocols. We also regularly give advice and testimony on preservation strategies, international data privacy and cross-border concerns, collection methodologies, and metadata production, among others.

Through our Discovery Counsel model, we also provide U.S. and global support to some of the world’s largest companies, offering independent, all-inclusive legal, operational, and document review e-discovery solutions. Our Discovery Counsel model — our fastest growing service — leverages our institutional knowledge of our clients’ protocols and preferences to determine e-discovery strategies, minimize risks, streamline processes, and control costs. Supported by our LitSmart E-Discovery Team, our model also incorporates access to LitIntake 2.0, our proprietary software platform that tracks e-discovery projects, ensuring on-time, on-budget delivery.


Insightful Information Without Delay

Our 30+ team members (attorneys, project managers, data analysts, trial technologists, plus up to 60 contract attorneys), average more than 15 years of litigation and e-discovery experience; hold numerous technical certifications; and/or have advanced technical and business degrees. We guide our clients and litigation teams through every stage of discovery in litigation matters and investigations, including identification, preservation, collection, early case assessment, processing, review (including analytics and predictive coding), and production of relevant information. Our proven expertise across practice areas, industries, and global venues enables us to handle — often at a moment’s notice — the most complicated discovery matters.


Collaborative Opportunities

We work closely with clients — including some of the world’s most technologically-advanced companies — to assess their e-discovery needs and data practices, while collaborating internally to strategically manage projects, technologies, quality control, costs, efficiencies, and client expectations. All of our project managers hold PMP certifications, and bring extensive experience developing creative, individualized solutions. Our industry-leading billing model — tracked by our firm-developed, award-winning proprietary dashboard system — provides foreseeability in budgeting, flattens budgets, and offers significant client discounts from the market.
