A better approach to eDiscovery
EimerStahl Discovery Solutions llc (ESDS) is a world class eDiscovery services provider that allows our affiliated law firm, Eimer Stahl LLP, to effectively leverage legal talent and eDiscovery expertise in large scale matters. ESDS successfully developed a sophisticated array of eDiscovery practices and services, including the implementation and use of cutting-edge technology, to more cost effectively handle large scale litigation. Eimer Stahl was one of the first law firms in the United States to recognize the value of applying conceptual and predictive analytics to large scale document reviews and productions and to successfully utilize these techniques in active litigation. We gained success and renown in negotiating one of the first eDiscovery orders for the use of predictive coding in litigation (Edwards v. National Milk Producers Federation) as well as demonstrating the ability to handle large cases with a fraction of the resources used by our competitors. As an early adopter of advanced eDiscovery technologies, ESDS is uniquely positioned to lead and advise clients on effective and cost-efficient discovery strategies. ESDS is led by Jen Polzer, who, with 17 years of experience, is a leader in eDiscovery Project Management. Jen focuses on reducing the costs and risks associated with the discovery process, optimizing the use of online document review tools, providing strategic assistance throughout the lifecycle of the EDRM, and providing education in overall eDiscovery best practices.
