Traditionally, document review has been conducted by team of reviewers working together in the same location. Since the review is done electronically, it opens the possibility for virtual or remote review, with people working in different locations.
Thought Leadership and Industry Trends
In this week’s blog post, CDS’s Steve Wang explains how HR teams in the eDiscovery world can optimize workflow and cut down on costs by outsourcing document review to a single team.
As eDiscovery becomes increasingly complex, it requires those handling the collection and review process to have expertise in multiple areas of technology and the law. Vast quantities of data and new data types means eDiscovery team members need to work together more than ever before.
On large, time-consuming projects, a kick-off call is a great way of investing a small amount of time upfront to save energy long-term.
Before any raw or native data can be reviewed for eDiscovery, it must first be “processed.” For those new to eDiscovery, the jargon and steps involved in data processing can be confusing. Our goal is to demystify data processing by describing what happens during this phase of eDiscovery at a high level and explaining some common processing terms and phrases.
As the eDiscovery industry has evolved, the difference between skill sets of service provider technologists and law firm litigation support analysts has been blurred.
The increasing amount of electronically stored information created during everyday business processes poses many challenges to corporations of all sizes. Between concerns over data security, increasing IT infrastructure costs, and the need to comply with electronic discovery requests, corporate legal departments have been required to dedicate greater attention and resources to managing their electronic information.
A consistent theme in our posts is explaining the benefits of technology when used properly. The key is to understand what technology can and cannot do and how lawyers and technologists can work together to achieve the best results.
