Training – Halcyon teaches document management (good documents / bad documents, and how to avoid creation of bad documents). The proliferation of electronic communication in business has created a rich opportunity for lawyers to find damaging documents in an adversary’s database.
Halcyon prepares witnesses for depositions and/or cross-examinations, especially persons who are not familiar with the US litigation system.
Records review and production – We can help minimize the (computer-based) selection of documents for production, thus minimizing the costly volume of documents to be reviewed.
Records Management – We have constructed Records Management Policies and deployed them company-wide. This is a lengthy process of proactive benefit for future lawsuits.
