re: When Big Data Meets Legal Discovery

The rising volumes and types of data residing within a corporation can stymie efforts to track, manage and control important and sensitive data that might be subject to litigation or investigations. When it comes to legal review, it has become a necessity to reduce volumes due to time, resource and cost constraints. Certainly, when applied with the proper processes and human expertise, technology-assisted review (often called predictive coding) can be hugely beneficial in quickly and cost-effectively winnowing down stroves of data to a smaller, more manageable population that is valuable to the case. That said, internal teams are simultaneously focused on finding ways, often with the assistance of third-party data management and business process experts, to proactively manage data from an information governance perspective G㢠including the design, implementation and monitoring of a robust information retention and defensible data deletion program. Once in place, data volumes subject to preservation may be more manageable at the ouset. And, with the appropriate search and analytics technology, legal teams can routinely cull down this data before the review begins G㢠keeping potentially huge costs and risks at bay, and moving through document reviews at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional manual methods, without sacrificing accuracy.
