An ESI Protocol is an essential tool that can cover preservation obligations, identify custodians and other sources of electronic data to be searched, and specify the search protocols that will be used, including not only search terms or the use of predictive coding, but also de-nisting, de-duplication, threading, and numerous other choices that will affect what electronic documents are produced, and the form in which they are produced. This panel will help you start off on the right foot in negotiating a comprehensive ESI Protocol, and give you the information you need to litigate these issues if negotiation is unsuccessful.
