Interview: Danny Chan of Ricoh on a case study involving Relativity Analytics

At Relativity Fest in Chicago, I interviewed Danny Chan of Ricoh to ask him about a matter he had worked on involving the use of Relativity Analytics.

Danny Chan said that the client was already out of time in dealing with vast volumes of data. Four lawyers, including a partner, were working on the review but it was clear that they could not possibly get through the work quickly enough.

The firm had always used linear review and knew that it would not serve its purpose. It turned to Ricoh for help.

Ricoh decided to use Relativity’s Active Learning. Ricoh quickly showed the client how easy it was to code documents and immediately see graphically how the review was going. Ricoh is a long-standing partner of Relativity and received useful help from them, including advice as to how to run parallel review batches to get through the work faster.

The use of Relativity’s Active Learning reduced the reviewable documents to 10% of the original collection. The client was particularly happy with how easy it was to use Relativity Active Learning and, Danny Chan said, would certainly use it again.
