The LexTrado difference

LexTrado has, after careful evaluation, selected a
number of international software platforms which, in
combination, provides a cost effective solution to
common e-discovery procedural challenges.

LexTrado is an independent firm specialising in e-discovery services, hosting of sensitive data in encrypted and highly secure environment, hosting of ICT systems for companies in business rescue or under liquidation for financial wind-up and digital escrow services. 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.

LexTrado is an independent data processing and hosting centre which does exactly as the name implies – “Legal Exchange”. We assist clients in conducting electronic discovery projects more effectively and provide a platform for the secure and confidential exchange of information during judicial matters. The primary function of Lextrado is to process data which is received in accordance with instruction and present case related findings in an efficient and effective manner for legal review.
