Protecting Trade Secrets During Discovery

When patent litigation erupted between semiconductor manufacturers, plaintiff counsel needed a discovery plan that would minimize potential exposure of sensitive information, always a concern when highly proprietary or trade-secret materials are potential evidence in a lawsuit. Celerity traveled to the client’s headquarters to perform forensically-sound collections in their highly-secure facility and submitting collected data for review prior to removal from the premises. Celerity also worked with counsel to identify particularly confidential documents to ensure that counsel could review them for relevancy before including them in our review dataset. Maintaining the highest level of security and confidentiality throughout the process, Celerity’s effective approach to collecting and processing the data saved the client thousands of dollars.
