About Our Company
Evidox is a leading provider of ediscovery services including collection, preservation, processing, hosting, and production.
Evidox differs from other vendors in its legal-centric approach. Its founders have AmLaw 100 backgrounds and previously ran the largest in-house ediscovery facility in New England.
The guiding philosophy of Evidox is that ediscovery is not a technical issue; it is a legal issue with a technical solution. As such, questions of scope and cost remain in the hands of the supervising attorneys, not the technicians. The technology serves the legal process rather than driving it.
Evidox and its principals have conducted thousands of ediscovery projects in hundreds of cases involving many terabytes of data and many millions of documents. In every case, however, the primary objective has been to make the project as small and inexpensive as possible consistent with the requirements of the discovery process.
