Erika Namnath is Associate Director, eDiscovery Technical Services, at H5. Nuix invited me to interview her at Legaltech about the contribution which Nuix makes to H5’s long-standing reputation in eDiscovery search.
Erika Namnath said that the special feature of H5’s service is expertise in searching quickly through huge amounts of data. H5 applies linguists, data scientists and statisticians to the task, using an iterative sampling process to test the results before getting them back to clients very quickly.
Why is speed important? The ability to uncover relevant materials quickly brings obvious advantages in shaping the strategy and tactics of litigation and, perhaps even more significantly, in dealing with regulatory requests, where it is important to be seen as cooperative.
Erika Namnath makes the point that Nuix is used by most of the relevant regulatory agencies, so no question arises as to whether it works properly.
Another advantage of Nuix, Erika Namnath says, is its ability to reuse data and to compare current results against past datasets. This not only increases the speed of a search exercise but reduces costs.
