E-Discovery & Information Governance Consulting

Gain competitive advantage and peace of mind with a comprehensive e-discovery and information management strategy. Concerned about locating important data when you need it? Concerned about the cost of over-preservation? Concerned about managing volume subpoena work? Concerned about moving data housed within the European Union? LitSmart E-Discovery helps clients develop policies and protocols for managing data that minimize cost and risk in just about any circumstance.

Information Governance & Records Management

Comprehensive information governance and records management strategies can be an immense driver of cost savings for organizations. With the exponential growth in data, it is simply too risky and too costly for organizations to be without effective policies that govern data management, including how data will be stored and for how long, what data serves a legitimate business purpose and what data can be deleted. We routinely develop information governance protocols, including legal hold and data retention policies, and guide our clients through the implementation process. 

Subpoena Response Management

Many organizations, especially financial institutions, are bombarded with subpoenas on an almost daily basis. Without a member of the in-house legal team dedicated solely to responding to subpoenas, it can become impossible to meet the tight deadlines imposed by government agencies and federal, state and local rules. We help clients manage volume subpoenas by creating standard operating procedures that streamline workflows. Working collaboratively with the client’s IT team, we are able to automate the legal hold, identification and collection process. We store potentially responsive documents in a repository in Relativity, eliminating the need to duplicate efforts when the same documents are needed time and time again. We endeavor to narrow the subpoena whenever possible, move for cost shifting when appropriate and develop a standard set of responses and objections (sometimes in letter form) tailored to the client’s needs that can be adapted to each subpoena.

International Data

When your business crosses borders, your information does too. LitSmart helps clients navigate the complicated and evolving international data privacy and cross-border data transfer laws to ensure they are fulfilling their legal and ethical obligations. With decades of international experience, data processing and hosting capabilities in the EU, and locations throughout the world, LitSmart is ideally suited to handle international data with an eye on complying with local laws, and avoiding fines and sanctions.

Privacy Consulting

Data breaches are occurring throughout the world on a daily basis and they can have a significant impact on a company’s reputation and livelihood. We guide our clients through preparing for such events by designing and implementing strong privacy measures and response plans. We deliver individualized solutions for management teams in a format that is easily digested by IT teams. We also help our clients navigate complex privacy regulations, whether imposed by state, federal or international law.

Data Security

Data security is of paramount importance to our clients and our team. In addition to our US operations, we offer secure data processing and hosting in the EU via the Firm’s Stockholm office with a dedicated Relativity instance and on-site support. All data is stored in state-of-the-art data centers in Atlanta, Georgia and Stockholm, Sweden with ISO 27001, SSAE16, SOC-1 Type II, SOC-2 Type II, ISAE 3402 Type 2 and GDPR Compliance certifications. All data is also monitored by the industry’s best cyber breach software and hardware. We have risk assessment programs in place, a dedicated Relativity Database Administrator and our systems are regularly audited to ensure data managed by LitSmart is safe.
