Culling & De-duplication
The process of reducing the volume of electronically stored data using sorting and filtering of various information such as source, file types, dates, key words and concepts. Each file is identified by a unique MD5 hash value and given a production name. The hash value is used throughout the process to provide an intelligent and defensible chain-of-custody.

Electronic Discovery Processing
Converting electronically stored information to various formats, such as native, Tiff, PDF, HTML or XML, for review or production purposes.
First, Files are flattened into component parts. PST and NSF are flattened into individual emails. Zip style files are flattened into individual files. Microsoft files are reviewed for embedded files, and these embeds are flattened into individual files.
For each file discovered within another file an MD5 hash is calculated. Parent / child relationship is recorded using a very simple human readable decimal. File metadata is extracted and recorded.
- Original file name
- Original file path
- To / From / cc for email

Native Review & Analysis
Evaluating collected electronically stored information (ESI) for relevance and privilege, while determining relevant summary information, such as key topics of the case, important people, specific vocabulary and important individual documents.
Native file review leads to a significant reduction in the number of relevant documents. Once these documents are identified they can be tagged for production and further review.

Document Clustering for eDiscovery Review
How the documents are organized for review can make a BIG difference in the efficiency of review, not only saving costs, but also improving accuracy by assigning similar documents to the same reviewer. Clustering software examines the text in your documents, determines which documents are related to each other, and groups them into clusters. Clustering makes it easy to explore and categorize large sets of documents, bringing efficiency to the electronic discovery process.
