Electronic Disclosure is a name given to the processes of capturing, collecting, restoring, manipulating and searching large volumes of electronic documents as part of the process of disclosure in civil litigation. The objective is to find the relevant documents from a mass of unsorted or randomly stored files in the most thorough, yet cost effective fashion. Combining this with the digitisation of paper documents were necessary, results in a complete document library enabling full disclosure.
The services that PDM offer encompass a wide array of technology and skills that lend themselves to any requirement of a quasi-discovery or similar nature, such as regulatory review, or investigations. P D M offers a structured service that is designed to complement any professional litigation team.
Larger firms that usually have a dedicated litigation support team, staffed with highly experienced professionals. P D M’s aim is to fulfil those tasks that in-house teams need to outsource, due to technical or time restrictions. Where a lawyer does not have an internal litigation support function to aid them, then P D M is able to plan and execute an entire e-disclosure project, so that the litigation team can concentrate on the subsequent review of the documents provided. This gives any solicitor access to the skills and technology that is usually only available to lawyers at larger firms with internal litigation support team.
