Know Your Technology and Its Best Use

We have built our E-Discovery Division around the principle that we are “technology agnostic,” meaning we have never purchased or developed our own platform, or partnered with one software provider that might tie the hands of our project managers and attorneys on different matters. We always want to be able to recommend the right tool for the data that needs to be collected and reviewed.

In practice, this means we’ve worked with more than 75 different platforms and have a robust understanding of the technology marketplace – whether it involves predictive coding, linear review or anything in between. We know the platforms that perform well with different types of data and the vendors that have the infrastructure and service to support projects of varying sizes, complexity and deadlines. The objectivity we offer in a confusing and rapidly changing segment of our industry is very appealing to our clients.

That being said, we have worked with some tools and partners more than others, and one company that falls into that category is DSi, which offers the Catalyst and Clearwell tools. DSi rolled out new data reduction service offerings recently that our teams have used on two separate projects. On both, our attorneys reduced large data sets by more than 93 percent, which were outstanding results by any measure. Compared to how they were prepared to handle the data reduction and review, we saved both clients millions of dollars.

It takes a high level of expertise and collaboration from the technology partner, project manager, outside counsel and attorney team to develop the right process to get every ounce of data reduction out of a tool. With the right partners, these types of results can be consistently attainable.

We look forward to sharing more stories about other great technology tools in future posts, but in the meantime DSi’s post about Predictive Plus is worth reading.
