What is De-duplication?
De-duplication is the process of eliminating duplicates to retain only one copy of each document, file or email per case. This is a key process in reducing the overall cost of the attorney review. For example, if an identical document resides within three people’s data, only the first person’s copy will be saved. Slip sheets are optional to document the locations of any other copies of the relevant document.
Before any de-duplication is performed, reach agreement among the parties as to the methodology to be employed and what constitutes a duplicate record. Without an agreement unnecessary disputes can cause the overall cost of the production to increase.
