eDiscovery: Data, Records & Information Governance

Lathrop GPM is at the forefront of emerging trends in eDiscovery. Our team of experienced lawyers, paralegals, project managers and technical specialists provide innovative, collaborative and cost-efficient solutions to clients in all phases of eDiscovery, an unavoidable part of modern litigation. We leverage law and technology to meet client needs appropriately for any size matter.     

Services we offer to clients include:

  • Advising on data governance, risk management and records retention policies for business needs, litigation, and regulatory compliance
  • Advising on the scope and breadth of data preservation plans
  • Negotiating cost-efficient, practical and defensible processes for document collection, analysis, review and production
  • Managing data preservation, collection, analysis, review and production processes and defending the reasonableness of such processes in court
  • Advising on privacy and data security regulations

Client Focused

We collaborate with clients to understand their objectives and reduce the risks and costs associated with all phases of litigation. One size does not fit all clients, cases or matters. We help clients select appropriate preservation, collection, culling, review, and production strategies and resources. At the same time, we aggressively pursue key information from our clients’ adversaries through the use of targeted discovery approaches, effective negotiations, strategic depositions, and motion practice.   

Litigation Tested

In addition to managing all of the various steps of data preservation and collection of electronically stored information (ESI), we have experience in managing large-scale reviews of ESI nationwide. These client engagements include onsite document review, oversight of document review conducted by outsourced onshore and offshore locations, and internally processed and hosted review. 

Our knowledge base includes working relationships with multiple vendors and LPO companies. Our experience and relationships allow us to provide the highest level of responsiveness, service, and solutions for our clients while saving our clients millions of dollars through strategic price negotiations and partnerships. As a case matures, we are prepared to utilize emerging software packages to manage depositions, exhibits, trial preparation, and electronic documents in complex litigation.

Our experience in these matters extends to the courthouse and the courtroom. Our pioneering work in negotiating eDiscovery protocols and various adverse party agreements set the stage for significant cases around the country. If disputes are not resolved amicably, our lawyers are ready to litigate eDiscovery disputes of all varieties. 

Consultation Ready

We also offer stand-alone data management and eDiscovery advice and technical expertise outside of the litigation setting. Litigation preparedness through a proactive and integrated approach to data and information management has become an economic necessity. Our decades of legal and technical experience enables us to assist clients with advance preparation for litigation holds, electronic information management and document retention. 


Our attorneys frequently speak nationwide on matters involving eDiscovery, data privacy and technology issues. We welcome the opportunity to meet with your organization to discuss your data management and/or eDiscovery needs regardless of how big or small the matter.
