FAQs

  1. What is eDiscovery?

    eDiscovery is short for electronic discovery and is the process of finding and producing relevant electronic information in response to a legal request or investigation.

  2. Why eDiscovery ?

    eDiscovery is both necessary and desirable. It is necessary in legal proceedings because there is an obligation to produce relevant electronic information in accordance with the relevant legislation and court rules. It is desirable because managing documents electronically assists with obtaining an early and thorough understanding of the evidence, leading to a better strategy and outcome for your client.

  3. How big does my case need to be to benefit from NuLegal's services?

    Any case involving more than a folder of documents or electronic information can benefit from NuLegal's services. You will benefit the most from eDiscovery in matters where:

    • There is a chance your case will morph into something bigger.
    • You need to search for topics in your documents and mark them against a set of issues.
    • You have a team of people who need to collaborate on the document review, chronology and legal arguments.
    • You need to reduce document volumes by removing duplicates and email threads. 
    • You want to track, manage and report on the document review.
  4. How does NuLegal help?

    NuLegal can convert your data to a court accepted format and place the documents into our review platform, Everlaw. We will help you get you up and running and offer unlimited training.
