eDiscovery Consulting & Project Management

As digital storage costs decrease, data volumes increase exponentially internal and external for organizations with significant litigation exposure. Disputes prevail related to spoliation and production protocol compliance. The development and administration of repeatable, defensible approaches can mitigate the associated risk. That’s where we come in.


marketing and social media consulting

Because our legal technology consultants have direct experience in their respective disciplines, they are perfectly poised to develop relevant and insightful content for social media and marketing use. Our marketing consultants leverage these internal resources to launch provocative campaigns on behalf of our clients and to kick start repeatable processes for clients who merely require help getting started.

Legal Technology software selection and implementation

Often organizations seeking new business solutions, check with their peers and move forward with the same solution as their immediate contacts. Information technology solutions involve integration considerations, training, support, direct expenses and indirect costs that work together with other variables to raise the importance of making the best choice for the environment. We drive the process for results consistent with organization goals.  

direct hire Recruiting

Our repository of over 4000 screened Legal and I.T. candidates, nationwide, provides a targeted base for recruitment of the right candidate for the position. Our recruiters experience managing in the very type of organizations for which they recruit provides the advantage of an intimate knowledge of key performance indicators for each position. 

litigation cost analysis and management consulting

Legal parties seek to minimize cost while simultaneously minimizing risk in litigation. Law firms seek to help their clients to achieve this goal while providing the best legal services possible. As a third party consultant, we work with inside counsel and their lawyers to develop cost containment strategies for the management of the digital components of the litigation, including electronic discovery. 


temporary and contract staffing

Large projects occassionally need to ramp up staffing levels for finite periods of time. Our recruiters maintain a national database of contract staff available in legal and IT disciplines for short term assignment. All candidates have been screened for appropriate skills, certifications, licenses, and background checks.
