Discovery Response Team Process

Many companies refer to the high-level response team process as a litigation response plan. When forming your team and establishing your goals, consider the culture of your company and your legal and IT departments. There are two primary models most companies use when forming a team and developing their litigation response plan. For ease of reference we will call them the “Do Model” and the “Assist Model.” If your company has a strong culture in the legal department of individual control by staff attorneys, you may find that implementing the Assist Model is a better fit for you. Similarly, companies with more centralized control or those that have greater perceived litigation risk may opt for the Do Model.
The difference between the two is evidenced by their names. The Do Model of a response team is one in which the team actually handles the document discovery portion of any given case or request. The team identifies the relevant data sources, works with the custodians, and documents and gathers all of the data.
