Working with primarily pharma documents that contain intellectual property information, processes and internal proprietary terms, an AMLAW 100 law firm must identify documents that are privileged. Privilege provides special protection that exempts certain documents and other forms of communication from having to be disclosed in legal proceedings.

A document may be marked as Privileged if it contains text such as legal advice, and communication among lawyers, clients, and third parties.

Via the iCONECT system users have manually and automatically redacted over 100k documents.
