The exponential growth in the volume and variety of data in recent years has generated a huge increase in demand for advanced analytics services. The field of legal discovery is perhaps the most striking example, witnessing growth in the volume of data held and processed by an estimated 40% annually.
In recent years, new technological developments have facilitated the presentation of exhibits in near-paper or “image” format. Due to the advent of native and near-native document production techniques and the nature of electronically shared information, increasingly the legal team may be required to present exhibits in native format. Grant Thornton has a breadth of experience in delivering paperless courtrooms across a number of jurisdictions.
As Grant Thornton’s eDiscovery team only employs technology and infrastructure which is wholly owned by Grant Thornton, clients can rest assured that their data is 100% protected at all times and is safely inaccessible to any third parties. In addition, our experts can offer a bespoke service, tailored exactly to your eDiscovery needs.
