San Francisco, Calif. – August 2, 2011 – SFL Data, the first provider of a fixed-price eDiscovery managed service for corporations and law firms, will introduce LitAudit™, a comprehensive evaluation of the discovery process, in Booth 112 at the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) National Conference, August 21-25, 2011 in Nashville, Tenn. When implemented during the first phase of eDiscovery, LitAudit provides a custom litigation readiness assessment to law firms and corporations to identify key gaps in the current setup, and recommend actionable implementation steps. LitAudit can help detect risks, identify potential consequences, plan workflow and ultimately reduce attorney review costs. SFL Data recently used LitAudit as part of custom audit services for a software firm and manufacturing company.

“By gathering data from key stakeholders, we demonstrated how to best implement technical expertise and a customized workflow into their eDiscovery strategy,” said SFL Data VP of Forensics and Collections Andy Crain. “Once we look under the hood of a client’s litigation readiness plan, we’re better able to detect potential pitfalls and risks, like inconsistencies in data management.”

The LitAudit service can be used independent of any specific litigation or investigation matter to help gauge preparedness and provide recommendations in the areas of eDiscovery readiness, litigation hold and data collection methodologies. For example the new Expert Brief on Forensics and Data Collection explains how LitAudit and other SFL Data services fit into an eDiscovery strategy. A sample report is available upon request.
