NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 13, 2017
BIA, a leading national eDiscovery service provider celebrating its 15th anniversary, announced the release of its new eDiscovery Best Practices Guide for Law Firms. As BIA’s Enterprise eDiscovery Guide does for corporations, this guide is specifically geared toward law firms to help them create clear, effective and defensible workflows and processes to successfully and confidently navigate the complex eDiscovery process.
BIA’s eDiscovery Best Practices Guide assists law firms in establishing standard practices that cover all phases of the eDiscovery Reference Model (EDRM), helping avoid the pitfalls and damaging negative publicity experienced by firms that have not standardized their eDiscovery practices. Drawing on their countless years of experience, BIA’s experts work with a firm’s attorneys and litigation support professionals to customize the guide for each firm, tailoring it to the firm’s practice areas, preferences, capabilities and more.
The detailed guide allows law firms to establish clear workflows, requirements and expectations covering every aspect of the eDiscovery process that are then implemented by both internal teams at the firm and any external service providers. It also includes a series of checklists covering topics ranging from how to successfully conduct the first matter kick-off call to final document production protocols, all to help ensure that each step is handled in a defensible, efficient and repeatable manner.
“This guide is a critical resource for law firms who want to develop defensible, reliable and repeatable eDiscovery process that not only ensure a consistent result, but that are designed from the outset to protect their clients and their clients’ data,” said Brian Schrader, CEO of BIA. “By establishing a regular protocol, firm leaders can implement the same steps for multiple legal matters to ensure the process is handled correctly every time, thereby reducing risk and increasing efficiency.”
For example, the guide coaches law firms on how best to assemble a team of a senior firm members, technical resources, practice leaders and others to create a truly effective working group that then sets the tone and expectations within the firm.
The end result is a clear reference that everyone in the law firm can rely on and easily implement in every matter, confident that their clients – and their clients’ data – will be protected and secure.
