Our services include analysis and reporting and we work onsite or remotely and we are well versed in the eDiscovery reference model and the different processing and review platforms firms use so we can be a good conduit with your in-house or outside team to give them usable data in the format they need. You focus on strategy, Perin will focus on the data.


When you collect your electronic evidence (electronically stored information), Perin asks, "How are you going to review it?" Not only in the spirit but in the action of finding "it", Perin's eDiscovery services are intended to help you find the 'smoking gun' or that 'needle in the haystack', whatever "it" is and provides a range of services from early case assessment and pre-review culling to final production and data repository services to support you.

  • ESI Pre-Culling by File Type, Custodian, Date, and Other
  • ESI Search & Filtering
