Integrated Foreign Language Document Review

One of the more challenging consequences associated with growing ESI volumes in litigation is the increasing frequency and variety of foreign language documents. As business has become more international, so has litigation. From collection through to production, foreign language documents introduce vexing complexities that can confound existing workflows and spiral costs. However, litigation teams can leverage improved review technology to solve these important issues and reduce the time and expense of eDiscovery.

Key Points

  • What is driving the need for foreign language review?
  • What is integrated foreign language review?
  • Importance of maintaining single document records
  • Benefits of a Multilingual Search Index
  • Effect of Scalability on integrated translation workflows

Best Practices: Cloud eDiscovery

The growing trend of increasingly large, complex data collections and reviews has caused both the time and dollar cost of discovery to explode. This is especially true when attempting to address large volumes of electronically stored information (ESI) with outdated software, systems and workflows. However, advancements in cloud computing technology have created attractive alternative solutions for small and medium-sized law firms and organizations.

Key Points

  • The Challenge of Big Data in Litigation
  • What is the Cloud?
  • How does Cloud Technology Apply to eDiscovery?
  • Cloud Best Practices & Advantages By Case Stage

Opposing Perspectives in Document Review

Plaintiffs and defendants face unique challenges during discovery. A central difference is asynchronous data; plaintiffs have had fewer data collection concerns while defendants have had to manage complex collection and production of vast ESI stores. On the other hand, defendants often have greater access to resources, while plaintiffs pay more attention to prioritizing expenses and making every dollar count towards a favorable outcome.

While both sides share a duty to competently review relevant case documents, goals and methodologies can differ distinctly. This webinar will cover how these different approaches can benefit from specialized document review strategies and technology.

  • Asynchronous eDiscovery
  • Differing Resources
  • Contingency Arrangements
  • Examining Plaintiff and Defendant Discovery Concerns

Best Practices: Technology Assisted Review

Technology assisted review (TAR), also known as predictive coding and computer assisted review, has become a frequently used tool to complete large document reviews quickly and cost efficiently. The promise of fast, accurate computer-assisted coding as a practical solution to increasingly massive collections is encouraging, but understanding various vendor approaches can be confusing and overwhelming. In many cases, there is little, if any, information about how a specific TAR methodology works, creating potential defensibility blind spots and jeopardizing the progress of your case. How can you trust or account for the results of a mystery process? Alternatively, if a methodology is fully disclosed, case teams can evaluate, explain, and justify outcomes with confidence.

Key Points

  • What is Technology Assisted Review (TAR)?
  • How does TAR/Predictive Coding work?
  • Why use TAR/Predictive Coding?
  • Comparing outcomes: predictive coding vs.and manual review
  • Importance of transparency in TAR applications
  • Benefits of scalability in predictive coding architectures

OnDemand eDiscovery Processing

Whether you are a litigation services provider or internally managing litigation support functions within a law firm or corporate legal department, ESI processing deadlines can often exceed capacity. In order to increase internal capacity, past options have included the purchase of additional processing software licences and local hardware, as well as increased staffing, to marginally increase throughput and meet demand.

But what about when processing demand temporarily recedes? eProcessing+ enables service providers and litigation support departments to scale up for periods of high demand and scale down when things cool off. And with no associated hardware or licensing costs, plus reduced staffing requirements, eProcessing+ lets you align case costs with revenues.

Key Points

  • eDiscovery processing and the EDRM
  • Fast, scalable processing: why it’s needed
  • Traditional processing workflows
  • Balancing processing demands with internal resources
  • Cost-efficiently increasing capacity and speed
  • Features and benefits of eProcessing+
  • Integrated ECA, processing, and review to speed throughput and reducetotal costs
