Deloitte Discovery services and capabilities
Deloitte Discovery combines the highly specialized skills of Deloitte’s people, its highly developed technologies, and the power of the Deloitte global network to provide deeper insights and smarter, more efficient solutions so clients can control costs and mitigate risks during the discovery process. Deloitte’s network of member firms has been providing discovery services for nearly 30 years to clients on six continents across five core services: discovery consulting, collection, processing, hosting, and review.
Deloitte Discovery has an exceptional team of professionals throughout the Americas, with technology and cross-border abilities to assist with global solutions. For example, to better serve our clients in the evolving Latin American market, the Deloitte Latin American Countries Organization (Deloitte LATCO) was established as a regional organization to unify our firms in that area; with nearly 4,500 professionals distributed among 25 offices in 15 countries.
Deloitte Discovery's America teams also have access to market-leading technology. Some examples of this include Deloitte Canada's National Discovery & Analytic Centre (NDAC) and Deloitte United States' Electronic Discovery Solutions Center (EDSC).
