Discovery Counsel and Services

Heuristica is leading the transformation of electronic evidence and eDiscovery practice by example. 

 

We have focused our practice on evidence management and use of electronic information in all phases of civil discovery in litigation and arbitration, criminal disclosure, regulatory proceedings and investigations.

 

As a law firm, in addition to providing legal review and RelativityOne hosting, we provide legal advice regarding all aspects of electronic evidence.

 

We are retained to assist counsel in establishing the evidentiary basis for various remedies or cost shifting orders related to electronic discovery processes at examinations for discovery, cross examinations on affidavits or cross examinations at trial and we have also participated in case conferences and discovery motions with litigation counsel when requested.

 

Our legal work can include research, drafting affidavits, drafting related motion materials, and providing comment and opinions regarding electronic evidence and processes.  This assistance can provide support to litigation counsel who can then keep their primary focus on the substantive merits of a matter.

 

Following are examples of the types of legal services we have provided to clients, in addition to legal review:

 

  • Independent Supervising Solicitor
  • Negotiating terms of Subpoenas and Letters Rogatory orders
  • Legal strategy development for electronic evidence
  • Legal advice regarding eDiscovery obligations, defensibility, and proportionality
