What is a digital forensics Special Master?

A digital forensics special master, also known as a computer forensics special master, is someone appointed by the court to carry out orders of the court. With a deep technological background and legal expertise, a digital forensics special master brings a unique ability to mediate all levels of the edicsovery process. A special master can reduce overall discovery costs by helping the parties negotiate a discovery protocol in the early stages of the litigation. Then they ensure each party complies, and that the parties get the electronically stored information (ESI) they need to support their claims and defenses as quickly as possible.
