Native Production—Advantages to Producing E-Discovery Natively

By Scott Lefton

Native productions are on the rise. Lawyers are quickly realizing the benefits to all parties when it comes to producing files natively. Single-page TIFF productions are still commonplace among many litigators, but this graphics-only format is quickly becoming obsolete in the modern world of today’s e-discovery. With the increase in electronic data (mobile data, Internet chat files, social media and email) and the advancements in document review technology, the “paper discovery” methods of the past, like TIFF and PDF conversion, are increasingly unnecessary and no longer cost effective.

The End of the Forensics/e-Discovery Divide

By Tim Leehealey

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard professionals in the e-Discovery and/or forensics field talk about the extreme differences between e-Discovery and forensics. If they’re forensics experts, they talk about the bag of complex tools they have and the obscure methods they use to unearth the hidden truth on a suspect’s computer and mobile devices.
