The Top 5 Things to Consider When Hiring a Paper Discovery Provider
By Tom Pellegrino
When it comes to discovery in litigation, we hear a lot about electronic discovery. But with so much of today’s world still relying on paper for business and personal use, it is something that can’t be ignored when it comes to litigation. In fact, paper is still a very important aspect of discovery and needs to be taken into consideration along with its electronic counterpart.
As a discovery company with an extensive background in paper, Everest Discovery understands this and knows what to look for when it comes to finding the right discovery partner. Working with a vendor that has expertise in both paper and electronic files is important. There are some key things to consider when hiring a paper discovery provider to make sure you have the right expert on your side.
