eDiscovery

Improve efficiency and drive down costs across the eDiscovery and litigation lifecycle  

68%
of legal and compliance leaders are struggling to manage their current workload and 50% go over budget to get fast turnaround.[1]

Overview

As investigations, litigation and regulatory compliance mandates increase, legal teams struggle to manage case workloads, budgets and risk mitigation without sacrificing key priorities. The pressure to do more with less is driving the need for more efficient, highly scalable eDiscovery processes. In fact, 70% of legal department leaders cite a renewed focus on adopting new or better technologies to simplify workflows and reduce manual processes to cut costs.[2]

eDiscovery solutions help legal teams run as a high-performing business department: on time, on budget and with measurable results.

Business impacts

  • Centralized legal data management

    Legal departments are under intense resource and budget pressure. Data scattered across systems, vendors and law firms wastes time and increases eDiscovery costs and risks. Centralize eDiscovery data and documents in a single system.

  • Document review

    Rising litigation and investigation volumes strain legal teams’ ability to meet deadlines. Adding reviewers invites more coding inconsistencies, costs and risks from document exposure. Streamline document review with legaltech to optimize results. 

  • Repetitive litigation

    Data and work product are often dispositioned at case end, even for matters involving the same documents. Treating repetitive litigation as one-offs limits reuse, multiplies work and increases costs. Centralize data and processes for easy reuse.

  • Legal compliance

    Regulatory or government inquiries and investigations require organizations to quickly collect, review and produce documents. This diverts employee focus and drains data repositories and budget. Rapidly respond to requests and ensure compliance. 

  • Subject Rights Requests

    Legal teams must protect sensitive data, promptly respond to SRRs and satisfy localization laws. Disparate tools complicate the process, limiting teams’ ability to find and protect data. Minimize litigation and eDiscovery risk with secure data.

  • Volume increase

    Legal teams handle large data volumes per legal matter and must review them at impressive speeds. Slower legaltech systems, limited resources and multiple processes eat at deadlines. Scale quickly on demand with integrated cloud-based eDiscovery.
