The discovery landscape has changed dramatically over the last few years. DOAR understands that the use of a defensible methodology coupled with advanced technology is what offers the greatest advantage. DOAR's expertise in the industry is unparalleled and provides a guided approach to circumventing the potential pitfalls that often arise during discovery.
Data Collection & Analysis
DOAR provides the most reliable data identification and collection capability by using non-invasive forensic techniques that preserve the integrity of the original evidence. We work alongside the organization's IT staff to advise on the best approach for identifying, collecting, migrating and extracting all forms of digital information. Our team determines the optimal method for copying the data exactly as it appears in the original storage media and documents the entire process for Chain of Custody (CoC) purposes.
Once the discoverable sources of ESI are targeted and collected, DOAR helps to provide meaningful insights into their content by working with clients to devise an efficient and defensible culling strategy. By sampling representative portions of the total population, DOAR's consultants apply preliminary keyword search terms. They then analyze the results to limit the inclusion of false positives and amend the list of terms to include other variations and alternatives in order to capture potentially relevant documents.
DOAR has been providing secure web based document management and review services for over a decade. We understand that there is no one solution that fits every case and therefore offer several options that are recommended based on the type of data, needs of the client and technical requirements of the matter. DOAR manages the entire process and offers a seamless workflow that allows our clients to focus on managing the case and not worry about anything else. For those clients that prefer to control the entire process, DOAR offers a complete end-to-end e-discovery solution through DOAR Direct™.
Working to gather responsive documents in order to make a production is just one aspect of the value that DOAR brings to any engagement. Analyzing documents received in response to a production request is an area that DOAR has a fine tuned expertise in. DOAR's methodology looks for patterns in produced data, and surfaces invaluable details and inconsistencies in order to bring crucial information to light. Through the use of data analytics, DOAR is often able to quickly find key documents that would not be identified until months into a review effort.
