Data Analytics and eDiscovery

When an investigation or lawsuit hits, the data you collect, retain and produce to a third party can be critical, particularly if you are subject to regulatory oversight or hold trade secrets, intellectual property or other valuable, intangible assets. Whether reviewing documents for due diligence, internal investigations, in response to subpoena requests or as part of a lawsuit, we help minimize costs while safeguarding your interests. Our experienced attorney-reviewers use cutting-edge eDiscovery technology that rivals our largest U.S. competitors, keeping our focus on value, efficiency and your best interests.

Our Team Approach Saves You Time, Money and Headaches

Warner uses an integrated team approach to provide full life-cycle support for business data that has been tested and proven. In both criminal and civil cases, we’ve handled eDiscovery on a massive scale, including some of the largest document cases in Michigan. Our breadth of experience includes document production to federal agencies, U.S. Congress, U.S. Department of Justice, state agencies, local prosecutors, litigants and major news networks.

  • Your “Smart” Accessory or Appliance Could Potentially Implicate You in a Crime – because of potentially discoverable data your device is collecting. This may sound like an extreme, but it is an actual example. Both the types of data records being generated, and the technological means used to access and evaluate them, are evolving constantly – and exponentially. While focusing on growing and managing your organization, it is hard to keep up with all developments. With our end-to-end service offering (including cybersecurity and privacy services), you won’t have to.
  • The Increasingly Important Offense. Being able to respond quickly and effectively to a data or document-production challenge is important. But avoiding a problem is priceless. We regularly conduct discovery audits, helping organizations understand their document retention and production responsibilities so you can identify areas for improvement, before a big case hits. Given the scope and potential multi-million dollars of costs for a big-data battle today, building strong data management and governance into your strategy is key to competing and succeeding.
