Employing protocols, not only workflow and process based, but thorough training and quality control checks make the possibility of this type of error occurring very low.

Many vendors have attempted it and, based upon feedback from our clients, most of them have problems dealing with the way Bloomberg® exports the data.

Foreign language data is more prevalent in ediscovery today due to the nature of cross-border litigation. The ability to identify different languages within a collection during ESI processing of the data is rare.

Today’s budgets do not allow for large amounts of data to be reviewed. At Legaltech I had the pleasure of speaking with ALM’s Zach Warren about just that, and the recent re-focus on ECA/pre-review strategies. We also discussed the sudden shift back to the early case assessment topic and why it’s making headlines again. ECA… Read More »

But, as the recent presidential debates make clear, there is always nuance to every message. Cost avoidance, by implementing a data mapping process prior to custodial interviews, ensures that the legal team will know where… Read More »
