What Is Litigation Support?

Litigation support is the process where a firm like ETC provides consultation and support services to individuals, businesses and attorneys regarding their current or pending cases. The services that litigation support firms offer depend on the client’s needs. They may range from research and documentation to trial testimony and assisting in determining damages.

Qualified consultants offering litigation support services may work independently or as a part of a firm. With the right team in place, handling a court case becomes much easier for the attorneys.

Document Review

The document review stage is critical in helping the litigant provide discoverable information to their opponent. The document review aims to identify what viable information falls within the acceptable scope of discovery.

Litigation support firms can also use the document review for broader purposes, such as helping attorneys determine the need for subpoenas and third-party requests, regulatory investigations, due diligence assessments for mergers, and internal investigations.

ETC can help design an effective litigation support approach for clients looking for customized solutions. Our forensic engineers have extensive experience, allowing them to ramp up quickly and enable clients to drive the most effective case strategies.


Getting the right information attorneys need to build a solid argument and legal strategy is extremely time-consuming. It’s even more taxing for attorneys dealing with unfamiliar jurisdictions, different record types and different agencies.

Some disputes may require specialized research. Outsourcing this research to litigation support specialists allows attorneys to save time while learning about critical issues in the case they’ll need to present before the court.


Negotiating favorable settlements requires a delicate balance of legal acumen and negotiation skills. Litigation support companies like ETC bring years of experience, assisting legal teams in crafting effective negotiation strategies for their client’s best interests.
