Electronic Discovery / Litigation Support

How quickly can your agency efficiently identify and produce vital electronic evidence?

Government agencies face a unique set of eDiscovery challenges. LTS is uniquely qualified to meet the electronic discovery demands that Government agencies face in an ongoing effort to protect and defend. Our solutions are specifically geared towards Federal, State, Local Government Agencies, as well as all branches of the United States Military who are focused on complying with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), who seek to improve their eDiscovery solutions in order to increase access to data.

The effort to comply with FOIA requests and the duty to investigate is a time-consuming and expensive burden primarily due to the volume of information and records created and stored in electronic form, typically found throughout the enterprise in an unstructured manner on network drives, personal computers and PDAs. 

LTS is uniquely qualified to meet the electronic discovery demands that Government agencies face, and can respond with immediate deployment of qualified, experienced, and cleared resources.
