If you had a chance to participate in our webinar last week, you saw the breakdown of the ESI Approach to eDiscovery that I advocate. The ESI Approach takes into account that we have increased volumes and potential sources of ESI that have to be considered, and that gathering everything is too expensive. It’s also not required by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and most state courts.

We recently had a great win for a client by using the ESI Approach to focus on the sources of ESI needed to tell this client’s story to defend the theft of trade secrets claim. Our work in discovery brought the case to a very fast conclusion — a result that was a big win for our client and outside counsel.
