Huron Legal adds Integrated Analytics to its eDiscovery resources

Huron Legal has added to the resources available to its clients with the introduction of what it calls Integrated Analytics. The ambition is the elimination of up to 70% of irrelevant eDiscovery data right from the start and a resulting focus on responsive documents at an early stage.

No outside provocation in Delaware predictive coding case

I have already mentioned on my blog the Delaware Chancery case in which Vice Chancellor J Travis Laster required both parties to use predictive coding. I give the link below to the article on the same subject from K&L Gates for two reasons. One is that it gives you the case reference.

The other is the dry reference to the judge’s unexpected plunge into deep waters. He addressed the issue of predictive coding, the  commentator says, “apparently without outside provocation” – a nice way to put it.

UK Parliamentary Justice Committee comments on the EU draft data protection regulation

The attached opinion from the UK Commons Select Committee responsible for oversight of justice reveals an ambivalent attitude to the European Commission’s detailed legislative proposals for European reform of data protection.

Praise from sponsors and delegates for Legal IQ’s Information Governance and eDiscovery Strategy Exchange

I have written in enthusiastic terms about Legal IQ’s Information Governance and eDiscovery Strategy Exchange which took place in Washington in September. The views of those of us who participate in the panels are of rather less importance than the views of those who pay to sponsor the events and to attend them.

This set of video interviews will leave you in no doubt that this event was extremely successful and seen as beneficial by those whose opinion matters. I hope that the London-based team responsible for it will be encouraged to venture further into the US conference scene next year.

First Advantage Litigation Consulting expands London document review centre

Barely a week goes by, it seems, without an announcement from First Advantage Litigation Consulting. The acquisition of DLR Legal earlier this year was the first in a spate of announcements including new offices in Switzerland and Germany and expansion in the US.

The latest announcement is of the expansion of FADV’s document …

Xerox Litigation Services to offer managed document review

I have written separately about the support for mobile devices which Xerox Litigation Services has added to its OmniX eDiscovery software. In his report on the same subject, Evan Koblentz at Law Technology News tells of yet another development from a company which seems to be making new announcements every month.

FTI webinar on 14 November – How intelligent reuse of data improves document review

One of the many interesting features of FTI Technology’s Ringtail 8 document analysis and review platform is the ability to re-use lawyer work product and information between matters. It does not  automatically follow that a coding decision made for one case will hold good in the next, but there is a high probability…

Epiq Systems Q3 results show 20% operating revenue growth

My main interest in the results of eDiscovery providers lies in the conclusions one might draw is to the health of the eDiscovery market.

Guidance Software Q3 2012 financial results show interesting activity as well as good figures

I do not pretend to be familiar with the terminology of US corporate accounts, but Guidance Software’s Q3 2012 results (see link below) show all the numbers going up compared with the same quarter in 2011.  President and CEO Victor Limongelli refers to “another period of strong growth for Guidance Software,…

Metropolitan Corporate Counsel interviewed Ed Burke, Senior Vice President, and Mary Ann Benson, Director of Consulting Services at Epiq Systems. The resulting article is attached.

The focus of the article is on predictive coding. As Mary Ann Benson says, Epiq was an early adopter of Equivio’s predictive coding application Relevance which forms part of the mixture of technology and processes which make up Epiq’s Legal IQ.

ZyLAB eDiscovery Bundle 3.1 – on video

I do not need to say much about ZyLAB’s new eDiscovery Bundle 3.1 because their video does it for me – it is linked to from the press release which is attached to this post.

I read an awful lot of product descriptions in a year, and it is not a criticism of marketing departments that each one seems much the same as the last one. The purpose of the software, and …

Guidance Software webinar on 20 November – Hunt or be Hunted: Exposing Undetected Threats on the Network

Anthony Di Bello, Senior Product Manager at Guidance Software, is the presenter of a webinar called Hunt or be Hunted: Exposing Undetected Threats taking place on 20 November. The registration page is given below.

The subject is graphically illustrated by a neat picture showing the old adage about little fish being eaten by bigger fish. The big fish, in this case, is made up of a host of small ones, an apt metaphor for the aggregate of minor security breaches which add up, when the attackers are ready, to a serious security breach.

Philip Favro of Symantec – the erosion of Pension Committee eDiscovery standards

One of the fundamental differences between the courts of England and Wales and those of the US is that we favour reliance on the broad discretion of the court where US lawyers like bright line rules. Nothing illustrates this better than our respective approaches to the duty to preserve documents in anticipation of litigation…

Catalyst offers Equivio Zoom to bring tokenised predictive coding to Japanese market

Catalyst has long been a pioneer in the difficult Japanese eDiscovery market – difficult because Japanese, as with other languages in the region, does not lend itself well to search technologies developed for English and most other languages.

AccessData Summation partnership with Canada’s Commonwealth Legal

eDiscovery software provider AccessData has been working hard to promote the all-new web-based Summation 4.1, a complete rewrite of the old Summation product set.

First Advantage opens document review facility at St Paul’s, London

I went to the launch party last week of the new document review facility opened by First Advantage Litigation Consulting at its offices overlooking St Paul’s Churchyard.

When I say “overlooking” I mean just that – the large room, newly fitted with reviewers’ computers, directly overlooks St Paul’s Churchyard.
