Making the Case for Managed Document Review
With increasing amounts and sources of data available, lawsuits and government investigations have entered the big data era. Businesses now measure data warehouses in terms of petabytes, and may have multiple instances of data storage facilities.
As a result, the document review part of legal discovery has never been more challenging. Even with the increasing use of data analytics, predictive coding, and automated reviews, the discovery process can be overwhelming. In response, many attorneys still often look to in-house resources to conduct the document review, or they may hire a staffing agency to provide lawyers for the process.
However, another option that government and private sector attorneys alike may find beneficial is to engage a firm that specializes in managed document reviews. In such instances, the law firm retains oversight of the process, but the majority of the work is performed by the service provider. Such an approach can offer distinct advantages, including speed, quality, and cost-effectiveness. Here, Barry Wiggins answers questions about why attorneys should consider managed document reviews over internally conducted or externally staffed alternatives.
