Sampling Techniques for Litigation and Investigations
Despite years of discussion in the eDiscovery industry about the power and importance of sampling techniques – particularly in the context of technology-assisted review (TAR), many practitioners remain unfamiliar with what they can accomplish with them and when, outside of TAR, they might do so.

Never have there been so many communication devices, apps, and services available for use by employees, and employees helping themselves to these options can create significant identification, preservation, and collection challenges
The fog of war is apt shorthand for the state of uncertainty that exists early in a new legal matter: What are the facts? What are the risks? What evidence exists, and what does it show? Early case assessment (ECA) is how we start to answer those questions.
Managing eDiscovery matters without a plan is like trying to navigate a major city without directions – chaotic, inefficient, and unlikely to get you where you wanted to go. Taking the time to scope and plan will help you understand where you need to go and how best to get there.
