Having more than 10 years’ experience in the Computer forensic field and identifying various additional services that support the legal processes involved in various areas of litigation, a need was identified to incorporate Lextrado EDS (Pty)Ltd to follow international trends in litigation where electronic data is concerned. Due to the increase in data used by individuals and companies alike, communication mainly by way of e mail and constant innovation in the IT field, litigants require more than just standard IT support.
E-discovery is becoming much more important in the context of civil litigation. E-discovery today represents a substantial portion of the litigation process, and companies that fail to produce electronic data in a timely or appropriate manner face the risk of paying millions of rand in sanctions and fines, not to mention loss of corporate reputation, lost of revenue and embarrassment.
