The problem

Very small team & highly cost sensitive client

The first round of discovery produced around 3000 documents. The client was new to ediscovery & opted for a linear review. After a grueling couple of weeks – working 18-hour days, feeling incredibly tired, stressed & painfully aware of the possibility of making mistakes – the client decided there must be a better way to do ediscovery.

 

When round 2 of discovery produced 13,000 documents, our client knew it was time to harness our expertise & the power of technology.

Our solution

Significantly cull the reviewable document set & streamline the process

How?

 

Our legal technology expert used Relativity’s powerful analytics features.

 

13,000 documents in total – 11,000 emails & their attachments; 2000 standalone documents

 

Culling

Of the 13,000 documents – 11,000 were emails & their attachments. Using Relativity’s email threading feature, we culled unnecessary duplicate items, such as forwards, ccs & replies – leaving approximately 3500 emails/attachments.

 

The 3500 documents were further reduced to 2,757 after client communication emails were excluded on the basis of privilege.

 

Streamlining

The remaining standalone documents were subject to a textual near duplicate review – enabling textually similar documents to be batched out together for efficient review.
