  • Will Sift's attorneys represent us?
    No, our employees will not have an attorney client relationship with the law firm or attorney (or the client of the law firm or attorney) who engages our services. We work under the direction of trial teams and act as agents for the attorney or law firm on the case, within their privilege as agents. We can assist your attorneys on large review structure, Electronically Stored Information (ESI) protocols, and requests for production as consultants or agents, but our staff cannot practice law. When we provide attorneys for managed review or other contract services, we will work with you to ensure that there are no conflicts present in the matter at hand.
  • What are my ethical obligations in electronic discovery?
    ABA Model Rule 3.4 provides that a “lawyer shall not unlawfully obstruct another party’s access to evidence or unlawfully alter, destroy or conceal a document or other material having potential evidentiary value.” To avoid spoliation claims and adhere to Model Rule 3.4, attorneys must have a firm grasp on their client’s email and network infrastructure to be able to competently identify, preserve, and collect relevant documents. The first step in the process is issuing a litigation hold. Competent representation requires lawyers to have knowledge of the legal principles governing preservation and to be able to both identify their client’s sources of potentially relevant ESI and implement the litigation hold that satisfies their client’s obligations to preserve relevant ESI. To ensure that electronic documents and data are properly preserved, the collection process should include interviews with document custodians to gain a better understanding of the location of all potentially relevant ESI. (*Note: Working with Sift does not create an attorney-client relationship. We are a service provider and act as an agent of the attorneys and law firms that engage our services on behalf of their clients. The above information is provided for convenience; attorneys are responsible for reaching their own determinations on their ethical obligations.)
  • Do you testify as experts?
    Yes. We have provided expert testimony on data collection, chain of custody, metadata, and electronic document manipulation. Email us at for more information.
  • What is an ESI Protocol?
    An ESI Protocol is an agreement between the parties to litigation which controls the scope of collection, format of production, and the handling of privilege information and logs. We can help you develop an ESI protocol for your case or keep you in compliance with an existing ESI Protocol.
