Question: I want the opposing party to produce emails to me. What format is best? I want to be able to search their emails and see metadata. So, ask for native with metadata, searchable PDF, or some other form?
In order to provide the best searching experience possible, please ask for native files from the opposing counsel. We can ingest many different types of files, including PDF's, TIFF's, etc. Native documents however are always preferred (like to get as close as possible to original source when performing OCR work).
