Electronic Discovery

Electronic discovery has become the norm in Irish legal cases. Grant Thornton’s skills, experience and technology can give you an edge in litigation, from small cases to the very largest.

Grant Thornton are the leading provider of e-discovery services in the country and have been for years. Our incident response team managed the electronic discovery in the largest e-discovery in Irish history. We have provided end-to-end technical e-discovery services in dozens of proceedings, in Ireland and abroad.

No other firm in Ireland matches our experience. Our expertise covers the entire breadth of e-discovery services, from helping clients to identify and preserve evidence, to collecting and processing it for review, to providing and supporting review services and finally producing it to the other side.

Our services do not stop there. We have unmatched skills in analysing our opponents productions, identifying errors and missing material. We routinely provide expert witness testimony, reinforcing our own work and exposing the problems with our opponents’.

Why Grant Thornton?

Our E-discovery team routinely support proceedings with tens of millions of documents, successfully collecting and processing documents from everything from USB sticks to cloud platforms, from smartphones to server arrays. 

We maintain a dedicated team supporting e-discovery processes in Ireland and abroad, every single day. Our systems are fully configured to support the latest Technology Assisted Review techniques.

We maintain multiple licences for our first-line Relativity and Nuix e-discovery platforms and we can support a wide range of other discovery platforms. We can collect evidence from dozens of computers in a single day and have our servers to process the data and deliver it for review more quickly than any of our competitors. In a recent case we successfully supported over 100 reviewers in 6 different countries, in three continents, while they reviewed over 2.5 million keyword-responsive documents in three languages.

Our e-discovery team is made up of qualified and experienced IT forensics practitioners, as well as being e-discovery specialists. Most have advanced degrees in digital forensics or other technical disciplines. All have been trained in criminal evidence procedure and we maintain strict, police-standard evidence handling processes. We have never had a piece of evidence successfully queried in court.
