This model is a diagrammatic representation of the standard phases in any eDiscovery project and it consists of nine distinct stages.
The main stages of the EDRM are outlined below.
This is, basically, getting your electronic house in order to mitigate risk and expense should eDiscovery become an issue.
This is locating the potential sources of ESI in the case or matter e.g. where is the ESI stored?
At this stage the ESI is harvested from the client for further use in the eDiscovery process e.g. processing, review and analysis.
At this stage the volume of ESI is reduced to a manageable level for review using e.g. keyword searching, date ranges and early case assessment.
The legal review team conducts this stage and determines what documents are relevant and privileged.
This stage can involve evaluating the document set for key patterns, topics and issues.
This is the process of delivering the final output to another party in the matter or case.
Yes – It is very important to point out that this is not a step-by-step guide; it is a representation of the eDiscovery process.
Any given project may follow all of the steps in the model, could follow the steps in a different order or perhaps repeat some of the steps. In other words, the EDRM can be repeated and/or completed in a different order.
