Social Media & Web Site Preservation

Our social media preservation service securely archives and indexes data from your company websites, blogs, Twitter accounts and Facebook pages. It's a fully automated service that sensibly addresses your organization's compliance and regulatory obligations.

The service automatically crawls your web properties at chosen intervals, building an archive of html source code and resources, high quality snapshots, and a robust full-text search index. The service makes it a breeze to go back in time with all of your websites, blogs, Twitter accounts and Facebook fan pages to search content, preview the site, and export the data.

Mobile eDiscovery Workstations

Global EDD Group has developed mobile e-discovery workstations that deploy worldwide on short notice to provide a full range of self-contained electronic discovery services, including:

  • Data Minimization
  • Early Case Assessment
  • Early Data Assessment
  • Email Analytics
  • First Pass Review
  • E-Discovery Native File Processing
  • Production Exports
  • TIFF/PDF Conversion

These high performance mobile workstations provide a cost-effective alternative to the typical industry approach of "copy and ship" data to an offsite facility for downstream processing. While this approach may be suitable for some projects, it can prove challenging to cases with cross-border privacy concerns, tight deadlines, trade secrets or lack of appropriate resources. Global EDD Group has designed this portable solution to not only alleviate these challenges of shipping data, but to do so at competitive price points often comparable to using a local vendor in the United States.

Typical Usage Scenarios:

  • Temporary Review Facilities
  • Incident Response
  • FCPA Investigation
  • Due Dilgence Matters
  • Cross-Border Litigation
  • Remote Client Facilities (regional, national or international)
  • Data Protection Act Jurisdictions
  • Trade Secret Security Concerns

About The FCPA

According to the United States Department of Justice, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd-1, et seq. ("FCPA"), was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons and entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business. Specifically, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA prohibit the willful use of the mails or any means of instrumentality of interstate commerce corruptly in furtherance of any offer, payment, promise to pay, or authorization of the payment of money or anything of value to any person, while knowing that all or a portion of such money or thing of value will be offered, given or promised, directly or indirectly, to a foreign official to influence the foreign official in his or her official capacity, induce the foreign official to do or omit to do an act in violation of his or her lawful duty, or to secure any improper advantage in order to assist in obtaining or retaining business for or with, or directing business to, any person.

Since 1977, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA have applied to all U.S. persons and certain foreign issuers of securities. With the enactment of certain amendments in 1998, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA now also apply to foreign firms and persons who cause, directly or through agents, an act in furtherance of such a corrupt payment to take place within the territory of the United States.

The FCPA also requires companies whose securities are listed in the United States to meet its accounting provisions. See 15 U.S.C. § 78m. These accounting provisions, which were designed to operate in tandem with the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA, require corporations covered by the provisions to (a) make and keep books and records that accurately and fairly reflect the transactions of the corporation and (b) devise and maintain an adequate system of internal accounting controls.

Small Firm Solutions

Global EDD Group is committed to supporting small to medium sized law firms (and related specialties such as accounting and insurance) by providing high quality services at price points that make sense for budgets of all sizes.  With the advent of cloud computing, there is no reason a law firm has to maintain the old trappings of an LLP – the shelves of leather bound books, the secretary pools, and the expensive document management and review platforms. The power of technology means lawyers can do more work with less overhead and do it from anywhere.

Social Media & Web Site Preservation

A growing number of matters that face small and solo lawyers today involve website and social media discovery. In 2012, the American Association of Matrimonial Lawyers found 81 percent of members saw an increase in social media evidence in family law matters.  Our Social Media & Web Site Preservation Service allows you to securely preserve a forensically sound and searchable archive of social media and web content.

On-Demand eDiscovery

The Global Discovery Network provides simple, scalable and secure discovery data management that includes on-demand eDiscovery processing, First Pass Review and Early Case Assessment.

We provide advanced online document review services that rival any technology available on the market. Most importantly, the cloud technology platform offers you as much or as little data storage as you need, at one predictable price.  The software is accessible through a web browser or mobile device, including your iPad. That's accessibility and mobility no cumbersome desktop solution can compete with.

Trial  Preparation & Presentation

And when your matter goes to court, our Trial Preparation & Presentation Services use software is the most advanced available for trial preparation, courtroom presentation, litigation technology, and evidence management.

Litigation Support on the iPad

According to the 2012 ABA Legal Technology Survey, nearly 30 percent of all litigators now use a tablet device in the courtroom and, according to a Business Insider survey, the Apple® iPad® has become the primary computer for many professionals.  The flexibility, portability, and accessibility of the iPad delivers is a great tool for litigators, but it's really not that powerful if your applications aren't built for the Apple iOS environment.  Unfortunately, many products and online services simple do not work well, if at all, on the iPad. Our technology partner Nextpoint, however,  is a native, cloud-based technology provider, meaning it works on your iPad, iPhone, Windows or Mac desktop, or whatever platform you use. Additionally, in 2011 Nextpoint optimized all of its trial, discovery, and preservation applications for the iPad, meaning it will always look and run great on the iPad or any Mac device.

Global EDD Group has leveraged this technology to provide innovative "On The Fly" solutions for legal teams who are continually on the go, enabling them to securely access and manage their data, documents and evidence from virtually anwhere using their iPad and a data connection.  Courtrooms. Client Offices. Airplanes. Depositions.  All without special software or apps to download or loss of functionality!
