Inside Baker Donelson’s Powerfully Simple Approach to eDiscovery

- More autonomy and control over the eDiscovery review and production process
- Lower overall costs to clients
- Faster direct engagement with the documents and data by the trial teams
- Minimal internal overhead and litigation support needs
