Our Strength

​​​One of the most often asked questions is about our company graphics, specifically the iceberg. We love this inquiry because it gives us an opportunity to tell the story and discuss some of the primary challenges in eDiscovery. 

An iceberg is a large piece of fresh water ice calved from a glacier or ice shelf. Because of the density of the fresh water, only 1/10 of the iceberg is visible above the waterline. The expression “tip ofthe iceberg” comes from the fact that is is very difficult to judge what is below the surface by looking at the visible portion above the water. This is directly analogous to the hidden facts in your eDIscovery populations.

It is not easy to know your data from looking at the outside. Everyone can count the gigabytes, but we do not know the number, size, source, subject matter or any other document elements of the data until we analyze what can’t be seen; what is below the surface.

Keeping you afloat and steaming towards a successful destination is our primary goal

The Principals

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide you with state-of-the-art eDiscovery services and sane predictable pricing.


At HP2 our principals are constantly schooled in issues concerning data security.  The security of your data is one of the cornerstones of our business, 

We implement data security in two very simple ways. First, we have no system that touches the Internet or any TCPI protocol communication in the wild. Our systems interact only through encrypted VPN and dual authenticated password. Secondly, and most important to you, our production system is a closed loop system. None of the production environment touches the Internet in any way. It is off-line.​ If it is not online, it cannot be hacked. 

All incoming data is processed through a quarantined system to assure the incoming data is virus and malware free. This assures that our data and our processing environment is clean and bug free.

​Your data is safe and secure with us.
