eDiscovery, Data & Document Management
At the forefront of the litigation support field for more than 25 years, Shook, Hardy & Bacon pioneered many of the data management strategies that are now industry standards. The SHB eDiscovery, Data & Document Management Practice has partnered with many Fortune 50, 100 and 500 clients to develop proactive, efficient solutions for electronic document retention and high-volume discovery in complex litigation. This practice offers a unique blend of legal, technical and strategic acumen developed over decades handling some of largest and most contentious mass tort litigations to date. Leveraging this vast experience, SHB counsel crafts sophisticated corporate compliance programs that take into account state and federal regulations, as well as litigation preservation requirements.
The SHB eDiscovery, Data & Document Management Practice is unrivaled in its ability to orchestrate workflow processes and systems for managing substantial document populations in complex discovery.
