Our eDiscovery Expertise

Our professionals deliver scalable, defensible, and repeatable processes designed to reduce costs and drive precise results throughout the eDiscovery lifecycle. We provide flexible and customized eDiscovery solutions for each engagement and assist clients in the proactive integration of practical and sustainable digital transformation technologies and processes.

Our experts assist clients in the identification, preservation, and collection of electronically-stored information (ESI), ESI processing and early case assessment (ECA) services, technology independent hosted data reviews, document production services, and eDiscovery advisory, among others.

We design workflows that take advantage of AI, document analytics, and predictive coding technology to maximize efficiency. We combine technology with strategic consulting and managed document review services to help even the most complex and voluminous legal reviews to be undertaken quickly. Our eDiscovery professionals are experts in understanding ESI protocols, managing review from beginning to end, and producing documents and reports to judges, government agencies, and other investigatory bodies. We help organizations to quickly and effectively respond in Second Request / HSR document reviews to achieve clearance on transactions and mergers and can effectively scale our services from small inquiries to large, complex projects as needed.

Working closely with our expert teams in forensic accounting, structured data analytics, cyber response, and data privacy, our eDiscovery team provides holistic support for all client needs.

Advanced Analytics & AI

By applying advanced ECA analytics techniques inclusive of artificial intelligence, computer-assisted review, and interactive dashboards, our experts provide significant cost-saving solutions, in some cases before the majority of data is loaded to a review database. We utilize targeted AI models to quickly surface documents of interest and are regularly evaluating the latest generative AI approaches coming to market. Our integrated Continuous Active Learning (CAL) workflows allow our clients to benefit from Technology-Assisted Review (TAR) while maximizing the productivity of the review team. We handle the details to allow legal teams to focus on the merits of the case and gain access to highly relevant documents promptly.

Document Review Platforms

As certified partners with advanced cloud eDiscovery platforms, we leverage our extensive experience to select and utilize the optimal technologies for document review, analysis, and production. Our experts utilize access to sophisticated tools, technology, and software to collect data from a variety of sources and place in the best-suited environment for your organization’s unique circumstance.

Managed Document Review

Our team delivers specialized expertise in document review to help clients to quickly identify critical documents and key facts from vast quantities of data in a cost-effective manner. We work with legal teams to provide comprehensive review and leverage state-of-the art technologies to meet the requirements of any eDiscovery matter, regardless of magnitude or complexity. We provide Managed Document Review services, either with J.S. Held experts or through our extensive partner network, along with our eDiscovery services.

Our experts leverage Continuous Active Learning technology to provide relevance predictions and facilitate smart batching. When running a structured review, AI combined with dynamic batching ensures that each new batch will have documents with the highest possible scores amongst the remaining unreviewed documents.

Our experts regularly provide document production services to government entities, courts, and counsel. We deliver expertise in ESI protocol development and leverage those standards into an array of document review and collection platforms.
