Webinar Description

Native files refer to electronically stored information (ESI) stored in the format originally used, without conversion to TIFF, PDF or other paginated formats for review. Examples are Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, or email. Whether ESI should be produced and reviewed in native format can be a controversial issue in the e-Discovery arena and opinions of its appropriateness vary among experts. When done it raises complications for both the producing and reviewing parties that should be identified and addressed.


– Statutory and Case Law around Native Productions
– Pros and Cons of Producing and Reviewing in Native format
– Metadata, Privilege Review and Redaction Issues
– Production Format Options
