As a certified trainer for the past 10 years, I’ve witnessed many approaches to receiving training. I can guarantee, that with a little effort, you can master an end-to-end eDiscovery software product, and it will greatly benefit your day-to-day workflow.  Some eDiscovery platforms are more intuitive than others, and therefore easier to use, which allows training to be productive and accelerates the adoption process. By applying yourself to one hour of training, you’ll learn how…
As the Practice Support Coordinator at a law firm, one of my core responsibilities was to develop an efficient workflow to prepare for depositions. Anyone in litigation support is well aware of the various challenges you may encounter while preparing for a deposition. These can include inefficient roadblocks such as lacking the ability to export documents and save them to a local drive or the inability to create tags on the fly. Another challenge you…
Organizations that continue to be complacent about data security ignore the considerable risks posed by a breach: extended downtime, loss of billable hours, destruction or loss of sensitive data and work product, and the potentially catastrophic costs associated with repairing the damage — both to their technology infrastructure and to their reputation and brand. Despite numerous reports of data breaches at law firms over the past decade, a warning from the FBI that hackers are…
Deployment of analytic applications across multiple matters and legal workflows sends a message to the boardroom The evolution of legal technology over the past three decades is a compelling story of significant gains in speed and efficiency in the face of exploding volumes of electronically stored information and steadily increasing data complexity. Innovations that legal departments now take for granted – from word processing, paper document scanning, and electronic time capture to more advanced eDiscovery…
The time has come for corporate legal departments overseeing large litigation portfolios or facing frequent inquiries and investigations to move beyond the limitations of case-by-case matter management. In the age of big data and process automation, a siloed approach to serial litigation is a huge missed opportunity. When departments analyze data from multiple matters over time, significant patterns and trends that were once invisible suddenly become clear. The insights that emerge can inform a range…
Forward-looking legal departments have made big strides over the past decade using advanced technology applications to automate processes and create new cost efficiencies. Powerful new tools allow us to manage complex, high-volume legal matters more effectively. A prominent example is technology-assisted review (TAR) in eDiscovery, which has proven to be transformative for legal teams tasked with sorting through hundreds of thousands or even millions of documents to find the most relevant information. With TAR, we…
The legal departments of Fortune 500 corporations often work with a long list of panel counsels. Their litigation portfolio is characterized by complex, multi-year cases, multi-matter and occasionally multi-jurisdictional scenarios, and massive databases of potential evidence. These companies usually have their panel counsels implement their own technology and services for each case. This means that each outside counsel uses different technology tools for their needs, i.e. data hosting, eDiscovery workflows, billing, etc. This infographic, based…
Fortune 500 companies frequently experience the complication of working with multiple outside counsels and their individually preferred eDiscovery technologies. Diversity in legal counsel is often beneficial, however inconsistent eDiscovery technologies often wreak havoc on a company’s budget and overall legal operations efficiency. One Fortune 500 company found a solution to this problem, as explained in the following case study. During a four-year engagement that still continues to this day, a well-known Fortune 500 construction…
