Litigation Support


Not every dispute or litigation is big or complex enough to justify the expense of an eDiscovery database.

eDiscovery Collab has developed a number of innovative tools and techniques to support the processes of litigation without the use of a litigation database. 

These tools and techniques help to simplify and create efficiencies in the way you conduct and manage the discovery process, supported, as always, by the eDiscovery Collab team.

Litigation support is recommended for matters where there are less than 1,500 documents.

eDiscovery Collab provides litigation support and creates efficiencies and value for money: 

  • Preparing a list of documents for disclosure: eDiscovery Collab can reduce the amount of time to prepare a list of documents and provide it to you in an organised, chronological, searchable format
  • Hyperlinked solutions: converting the documents to a searchable format, producing a list of the documents and sorting them chronologically will assist in navigating around the documents, searching across the documents and understanding the document content quickly.

The types of documents can include: 

    • Briefs to Counsel
    • Pleadings
    • Witness Statements
    • Expert Reports
    • Submissions
    • Mediation papers
    • Chronologies
    • Trial bundles
    • Witness bundles
    • Any other document that refers to documents within it

Challenges during the litigation and discovery process without a database include:

  • Consistently sharing documents across parties so that everyone is working from the same source of truth, that is the same set of documents.
  • Not being able to search across the documents and their metadata to quickly locate key documents.
  • Understanding what has been reviewed and disclosed at a glance.
  • Identifying privilege documents quickly and quality checking whether a document with a privilege term in it has been identified for disclosure.
  • Using the power of AI to identify the most relevant documents first.
  • Tagging and organising case issue bundles.
  • Duplication – the lawyers may have to review the same document multiple times.
  • Unable to easily track where one document is referred to in multiple witness statements.
  • Unable to compare similar documents easily.

What eDiscovery Collab does

At eDiscovery Collab, we educate our clients’ teams to be as effective and efficient as we are at litigation support.  Well, maybe to be as close as possible to our expertise.

Our team regularly offers and engages with clients and others to train them to be “Document Management Wizards” just like we are.

When we learn something new, or new and updated tools become available, we can’t wait to share it with the people we know and we run regular free workshops online and in person to share these with our client base.
