Pulteney bridge, Bath, England

Welcome

At LitSavant we specialise in providing independent practical consultancy services in the area of edisclosure and litigation support. Whether you are an in-house legal department, a law firm, service provider or a software supplier, we are able to assist you.

Our consultancy covers all aspects of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) from formulating document management strategies for blue chip companies to identifying presentation systems for deploying material at a hearing. We have advised on formulating defensible collection methodologies, identified effective culling strategies to reduce the volume of material to be reviewed and devised and implemented review strategies for cases ranging in size from a few thousand documents to several million. We have practical experience of operating document processing software and litigation support systems and understand their strengths and limitations.

Key to our practice is our ability to understand and explain technical terminology to lawyers and legal terminology to technologists. Bridging these communication gaps is vital to ensure that those involved in managing the document lifecycle are able to work effectively with their legal teams. We pride ourselves on being able to provide pragmatic solutions to these sorts of challenges whilst thinking outside the box.

EDRM
Electronic Discovery Reference Model: one of a number of industry initiatives to provide a common framework of terminology to describe the entire document lifecycle in the context of litigation.

CPR 31PD 2A

It might be contended that CPR 31PD 2A and electronic disclosure are little known or practised outside the Admiralty and Commercial Court. If so, such myth needs to be swiftly dispelled when over 90% of business documentation is electronic in form. The Practice Direction is in the Civil Procedure Rules and those practising in civil courts are expected to know the rules and practice them; it is gross incompetence not to.
