Document review is often the most expensive phase of the litigation, regulatory, or investigative lifecycle. With data volumes increasing every year, it’s imperative to reconsider old ways of working, seek innovative methods to gain an early strategic advantage, and leverage technology to mitigate costs.
Where the industry is today
Managing reviews is still a complex challenge that calls for expertise in harmonizing people, process, technology, and data. The importance of getting this strategy right has only grown with new data volumes seen during the pandemic.
Advances in technology make it easier than ever to reduce data volumes and build case knowledge sooner, but all tools require specialized knowledge and new ways of working to integrate them with human review and case strategy.
On top of this, the industry is still facing a lack of trust in multi-shore teams, resistance to fully embrace technology, and the need for law firms and service providers to further collaborate to ensure that reviews are both defensible and cost-effective.

Our goal is to help clients deploy a technology-forward approach to find critical evidence, meet matter objectives as early as possible, and give counsel a strategic case advantage. For us, it’s a race to the finish, not a race to the start.
