ESI Protocol Checklist for Collaboration Data: eDiscovery Best Practices

I don’t really need to say any more, do I? But I will. Jim Gill of Hanzo, you had me at “ESI Protocol Checklist for Collaboration Data”!

In the aptly-named article (ESI Protocol Checklist For Collaboration Data), available here), Jim starts by discussing why ESI protocols are important for legal teams during eDiscovery. Here are two of the four reasons he gives:

Ensure Preservation of Relevant ESI: ESI protocols help to ensure that relevant ESI is properly preserved, collected, and produced. These protocols can specify the types of ESI that must be preserved, how it should be collected and stored, and who is responsible for ensuring its preservation.


Reduce Costs: ESI protocols can help to reduce the costs associated with eDiscovery by providing guidelines for the scope of discovery, the types of ESI that must be produced, and the timing of production. This can help to prevent unnecessary or duplicative searches for information, which can be costly and time-consuming.

So, what are the other two reasons why ESI protocols are important for legal teams during eDiscovery? More importantly, what is the ESI Protocol Checklist for Collaboration Data? Find out here – it’s just one more click! There are a lot of cases that can benefit from this terrific resource! 😉

So, what do you think? Does your organization negotiate an ESI protocol in its cases? And does it include parameters for collaboration data? It should! Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
