As electronic documents continue to dwarf paper documents and assume growing importance as a component of many legal proceedings, firms are searching for new and effective ways to tackle the cumbersome tasks associated with document review.  Electronic discovery requires the investigation and review of data, be it email or spreadsheets, as well as the use of the right tools to search data during each stage of litigation.  Effectively knowing how to search for electronically stored information is a challenge for many attorneys.

Organizations that face complex litigation events are better prepared to face their ediscovery challenges when the stakeholders have taken steps to align their agendas, business processes, and IT infrastructure investments at the onset. Under this scenario, the ediscovery document review and collaboration platform should have the scale, performance, and infrastructure capabilities to support multiple data formats, complex workflows, and granular security, work product, and data segregation models while still meeting review and production turnaround objectives and cost constraints.

Gotcha. The Smoking Gun. No matter how you refer to it, searching for – and, more importantly,
finding that crucial “ah ha” document in a sea of electronic data is critical to conducting effective legal

and man-hours required to sift through thousands or even millions of emails, spreadsheets, contracts
and correspondence. In many instances, present legal review search technology provides limited
results—while in others it doesn’t locate the precise documents you need to find at all. In most cases,
“not finding” the right document can determine the success or failure of a legal proceeding. Hence, we
need to keep an open mind to emerging technologies that can have a positive impact on cases.
