Deloitte’s Dynamic Review is a managed document review solution that employs a layered approach of filtering, analytics, text categorization (“predictive coding”)and validation to inform decision-making. Our clients and their counsel use this analytic tool set and process to make better, more informed document review decisions. With Dynamic Review, we are able to help clients better organize and prioritize reviews, enhance quality control, further reduce the document population and allocate resources more effectively. Significantly, Dynamic Review is platform agnostic; therefore, clients are not required to purchase any additional technology or leave their existing review platforms to take advantage of Deloitte’s capabilities. In combination with our managed review offering, we act as an extension of your team, fully dedicated to addressing your challenges through our focus on an effective outcome.

Deloitte Discovery employs advanced analytics and reporting solutions that help to reduce the risks and costs associated with electronic discovery. We leverage advanced analytics and statistical techniques to both inform attorneys about document populations that require review and to validate the use of cost-saving technologies. Powered by our FAS Analytics Institute, our clients receive the benefits of analytic technology through approachable, easy-to-understand scoring methods, prioritizations and visual analyses. Increasingly, discovery analytics are used to address information governance issues such as defensible disposition and integration challenges between unstructured data and structured data. The combination of statistical, text and database analyses provide a unique insight into relevant data at a lower cost with more accuracy.
Information lifecycle and archive assessments
Deloitte Discovery professionals help companies address the aspects of information lifecycle solutions, including information lifecycle management, e-mail archiving, defensible disposition and e-discovery systems. Our practitioners are trained and experienced on the latest regulatory, e-discovery and information lifecycle management processes and software applications and how they are deployed in a variety of environments (virtual, cloud, etc.). We make recommendations designed to address the strategy and deployment of processes and technologies used to capture, manage, store, preserve and deliver information (e.g., e-mail, documents, images, records, web content) that are related to business processes, wherever this information resides.
Deloitte Discovery’s litigation readiness professionals assist corporate law departments with the strategic design, implementation and operation of eDiscovery programs, addressing people, process and technology. Specifically, we have helped companies with legal holds, preservation, acquisition, electronic discovery readiness and records management. These services address how corporate law departments manage spend, mitigate risk and improve effectiveness.
Structured data support
Deloitte Discovery performs research and analysis that cannot be done with standardized search criteria found on common e-discovery platforms. We work closely with clients and industry experts to extract and analyze structured data from disparate systems and link that data to unstructured data. We leverage experience and leading-edge technologies to create rule-sets and predictive models that provide clarity on complex, data-intensive cases. Additionally, we provide our clients with customized reporting through the analysis of text and structured data to provide a more transparent view and ultimately a better understanding of the matter.
