Kroll Ontrack Launches Electronically Stored Information (ESI) Consulting Practice

Minneapolis – June 20, 2007 – Kroll Ontrack® , the industry’s largest provider of electronic and paper-based document discovery and computer forensics services, today launched its electronically stored information (ESI) consulting practice –Ontrack Consulting – at LegalTech West Coast in Los Angeles. This new team of consultants will help corporations and outside counsel navigate through technical intricacies and legal standards associated with the accessibility of electronically stored information and other technical issues relating to electronic discovery. Ultimately, this service will help attorneys establish best practices for data management and for all stages of the electronic discovery process to reduce the burden and cost associated with discovery.

The December 2006 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure underscore the important role of electronically stored information in modern litigation, while requiring a heightened level of discovery readiness. Attorneys are now faced with new legally mandated responsibilities to understand the technical realities of ESI. Leveraging Kroll Ontrack’s ESI expertise and the experience of the company’s consultants, attorneys can be confident they are prepared to manage e-discovery and effectively advocate on behalf of the parties they represent.
