Corporate Counsel Slow to Embrace E-Discovery Technology Advances, According to Inside E-Discovery Survey by BDO Consulting

Less than Half of In-House Counsel Report Adoption of Technology-Assisted Review; Middle Market Furthest Behind

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Corporate counsel have made relatively little improvement in their e-discovery technology capabilities over the last year, according to the second annual Inside E-Discovery Survey by BDO Consulting, a leading provider of Financial Advisory, Business Advisory and Technology Services worldwide.

Thirty percent of organizations with revenues between $100 million and $1 billion (“middle market”) have adopted technology-assisted review, compared to nearly half (47 percent) of organizations with revenues of $1 billion or above. Similarly, just 15 percent of middle market organizations have adopted data visualization techniques, compared to 27 percent of larger organizations.

“As the universe of Big Data continues to grow, and the already complex regulatory environment becomes more challenging, it’s imperative that technology play a central role in determining what information is ultimately relevant to pending litigation or an investigation,” said Stephanie Giammarco, Partner and Forensic Technology Services practice leader with BDO Consulting.

The survey found significant room for improvement when it comes to the adoption and enhancement of organizations’ e-discovery technology capabilities, with the middle market falling the furthest behind. More than a third of all organizations (38 percent) report that they have not employed any recent e-discovery technological advances. This percentage rises to half (50 percent) when looking at middle market organizations.

“While some larger organizations have started to adopt technology, the middle market is late to the game,” said Douglas Herman, Principal in the Forensic Technology Services practice of BDO Consulting. “Not only do such tools reduce e-discovery costs, they can result in better case outcomes. It is critical for organizations of all sizes to evaluate and implement these technology advances as they become increasingly mainstream.”

Corporate Counsel Point to Big Data Management, Cost Control, and Regulations as Major Concerns

When asked to evaluate the issues that will have the most significant impact on their organization’s e-discovery process, almost half of in-house counsel (49 percent) ranked the volume, variety and velocity of disparate data as the issue that will have the greatest impact on their organizations. Forty-two percent cited escalating costs associated with the e-discovery process and 40 percent cite regulatory activity as the second and third most impactful factors respectively. These closely related concerns reflect the increased need for investment in e-discovery technology at a time when Big Data is experiencing exponential growth and the regulatory environment is becoming more globalized and interconnected.

Early Understanding Key to Successfully Managing E-Discovery

Corporate counsel ranked understanding the universe of potential evidence early in the case as the most important factor to managing e-discovery in litigation, followed by predicting the total cost of e-discovery.

Respondents’ focus on an early understanding of the scope of e-discovery points to growing concern over rising e-discovery costs. Thirty-nine percent of respondents anticipate they will need to spend more on e-discovery this year. Just 5 percent anticipate their e-discovery costs will decrease.

“When dealing with the volumes of electronically stored information (ESI) we’re seeing today, traditional searching and culling methods are usually not sufficient,” added Ms. Giammarco. “Employing data analytics and visualization techniques early along the Electronic Discovery Reference Model — even before an e-discovery issue arises, and certainly before processing all the ESI — maximizes efficiencies and reduces costs.”

Other major findings from the Inside E-Discovery Survey by BDO Consulting include:

  • Two-thirds of respondents reported that North America presents the most challenging e-discovery landscape, with China lagging far behind in second place (13 percent).

“In today’s digital age, the volumes of data generated from disparate sources around the world, combined with the nuances of navigating complex legal and regulatory issues both in the U.S. and overseas require robust e-discovery management capabilities,” said Jenna Aira-Ventrella, Managing Director in the Forensic Technology Services practice at BDO Consulting. “Pending changes to EU data privacy laws will certainly add to the complexity, potentially further impacting cross-border litigation or investigations.”

  • Respondents cited the myriad of international data privacy and security laws as their biggest challenge (51 percent) to managing cross-border e-discovery, but a combined 35 percent rate local access issues — access to data, coordination with local resources, and communication barriers ‒ as their greatest cross-border hurdle.

“Providers with boots on the ground typically have a solid understanding of local privacy laws and how to apply them,” said Glenn Pomerantz, Global Forensics Leader at BDO Consulting. “They are also best positioned to facilitate access, coordination and communication with local parties and resources.”

The Inside E-Discovery Survey by BDO Consulting is a national survey conducted by ALM, a global leader in specialized business news and information serving the legal, real estate, consulting, insurance and investment advisory industries, an independent and impartial research firm. ALM surveyed 140 senior in-house counsel at leading corporations throughout the United States to collect their insights for BDO Consulting’s second annual study.

ZyLAB Receives Highest Product Score for Complete EDRM E-Discovery in Gartner’s “Critical Capabilities for E-Discovery Software” Report

Independent Analysis Identifies Use Cases that Highlight Organization’s Top eDiscovery needs

McLean, VA – Oct. 12 2015  – ZyLAB, a leading provider of eDiscovery and information governance technology, today announced that it is proud to receive the highest product score in the use case of “Complete EDRM (Electronic Discovery Reference Model) E-Discovery”;  one of three uses cases in Gartner’s Inc. “Critical Capabilities for E-Discovery Software” report. The report that was published on October 6 2015, provides an independent evaluation of 20 eligible eDiscovery software vendors to help IT leaders and legal counsel select suitable tools for their eDiscovery needs.

In the report Gartner identifies six critical capabilities and three use cases to provide a detailed ranking of software products from 20 selected eDiscovery vendors. The identified use cases highlight an organization’s top eDiscovery needs and span both legal and investigative eDiscovery matters. These investigative eDiscovery matters span from regulatory investigations, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to internal disputes.

In the use case of “Complete EDRM eDiscovery”, ZyLAB receives the highest product scores. “We believe receiving the highest product score, is fueling our mission to continuously enhance our integrated end-to-end solution addressing all stages of the EDRM.” said Johannes Scholtes, Chief Strategy Officer for ZyLAB. “We have done well in keeping pace with cloud-based deployment with an emphasis on self-service and are differentiating ourselves through support for multiple languages and capabilities like file analysis for records classification and email archiving.”

Critical capabilities are the primary software features that the evaluated products should have to support one or more of the use cases mentioned above. Gartner identifies the following six critical capabilities to rank the respective product strengths:

  • ECA (early case assessment), Predictive Coding or TAR (technology assisted review)
  • Forensic Data Collection
  • Legal Hold Management
  • Processing
  • Review
  • Scalability

The other two use cases are Data Collection, Preservation and ECA (early case assessment) and Legal Review. For inclusion in this Critical Capabilities document uses the same criteria as the “Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery Software.”

Johannes Scholtes; “Like Gartner rightfully concludes, controlling eDiscovery related cost and risk is becoming harder to achieve with the ever-increasing volume, variety and velocity of data. The need for organizations to collect and preserve data from both on-premises and cloud sources is adding an extra layer of complexity to eDiscovery. ZyLAB always has been a trailblazer in developing agile, transparent and less expensive approaches to eDiscovery, and responding to these ever changing needs.”

ZyLAB named a “Leader” in Analyst Firm’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for eDiscovery Software

Independent Analysis of Offerings Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

McLean, VA –ZyLAB, a leading provider of eDiscovery and information risk management technology, today announced that it is proud to be positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for eDiscovery Software report[1]. The report that was published on May 18, 2015 provides an independent evaluation of 20 eligible eDiscovery software vendors and an analysis of their respective abilities to execute and the completeness of their visions. 

 The report only includes vendors that satisfy Gartner’s quantitative requirements for market penetration and customer base. According to the report, “As the e-discovery software market continues to evolve, the Leaders are characterized by several different capabilities:

  • Solid functionality that meets one or more requirements of both the left-hand and the right-hand side of the EDRM.
  • Technology offering that distinguishes themselves for strategic adoption with an ambitious roadmap.
  • Business models that clearly demonstrate that their focus is software development and sales. (Note: Mixed software and service models do not prevent a vendor from being a Leader as long as the vendor’s commitment to software development and technology innovation is evidenced by product roadmaps and the size of its development teams, which should compare favorably with its professional services personnel.)
  • A good mix of corporate, law firm, service provider and global jurisdiction buying centers.
  • Good performance financially in terms of market share gains and positive growth.”

The annual report evaluates the eDiscovery software vendors on their respective abilities to execute and the completeness of their vision.

The market covered by the Magic Quadrant contains vendors of eDiscovery software for the identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, analysis and production ESI in support of the common law discovery process in litigation or other investigative proceedings, regardless of delivery method. Gartner concludes that controlling risk and cost remains the primary business goal for seeking better and more effective e-discovery solutions.

“We believe being positioned as leader confirms our visionary ability to answer to the markets demand for newer and innovative technologies that support lower cost and faster performance” said Johannes Scholtes, Chief Strategy Officer for ZyLAB.  “Many organizations realize that the traditional project-based approach to eDiscovery is no longer sustainable. We address the need for agile, transparent and less expensive approaches to eDiscovery, and in the meantime respond to the emerging requirement to expand the consideration of eDiscovery scope and technology usage to include new types of content from new sources, like the cloud.”

eDiscovery services company hires Brandi Walkowiak, Esq., to expand its consulting services, headquartered in Detroit.

Advanced Discovery announced today that Brandi Walkowiak, Esq., is joining the company as director of professional services to develop and implement new advisory services.

Ms. Walkowiak will leverage her years of experience working on government and internal investigations to create a new suite of advisory services for planning and budgeting, internal investigations and information governance.

These services will enable attorneys to execute their litigations more cost effectively. As a value-added service, Ms. Walkowiak will also offer trainings.

“Brandi has just the experience needed to guide our clients through some of the most challenging aspects of their matters. As our document review division has grown, clients have turned to us more for direction on ways to expedite discovery, improve outcomes and reduce costs. The fact that Advanced Discovery can attract a legal professional of Brandi’s caliber to serve our clients speaks to our excellent reputation and will increase it,” said John Sanchez, vice president of document review for Advanced Discovery.

Ms. Walkowiak will be headquartered in the company’s new Detroit offices. The offices will house a state-of-the-art document review center, designed with primacy of data security in mind. Detroit will bring the number of review centers in Advanced Discovery’s locations to eleven. It will be the second in the Midwest, a traditionally underserved market in the eDiscovery industry.

Prior to joining Advanced Discovery, Ms. Walkowiak was a senior counsel with Foley & Lardner LLP in the firm’s Government Enforcement and White Collar Practice Group. Her practice focused on white collar and internal investigations involving a range of substantive areas, including health care fraud, off-label marketing, securities fraud, antitrust, government contract fraud, customs violations and bribery and kickbacks. She also practiced in the area of corporate compliance with particular focus on FCPA and antitrust compliance.

Prior to Foley, Ms. Walkowiak worked as a litigation associate at Sidley Austin LLP in Washington DC, where she worked on criminal matters and complex commercial cases. Ms. Walkowiak clerked at the US Court of Federal Claims for the Honorable Emily C. Hewitt.

Advanced Discovery Releases Merged Innovative eDiscovery Technology, XpressLook

eDiscovery services provider combines its two proprietary early case assessment apps, Xpress and FirstLook, within Relativity to deliver a remarkably innovative ECA utility.

Austin, Texas – After its recent acquisition of Responsive Data Services (RDS), Advanced Discovery has decided to combine the best of both companies’ proprietary ECA tools. RDS’s software, Xpress Powered by Relativity, placed in the top 10 most innovative technologies at Relativity Fest in October 2014. Advanced Discovery’s own proprietary app, FirstLook, had similar functionality. Xpress and FirstLook are now merged into a software utility called XpressLook.

XpressLook compresses the time between the receipt of data from clients and its visibility to attorneys. To do this, it makes only the essential data, metadata and extracted text available initially. With this information loaded into a single Relativity database, attorneys can perform the analysis activities available in Relativity along with the expanded functions exclusive to XpressLook.

XpressLook uses Relativity’s triggers, pivots and views to parse metadata details into multiple views for deeper insight and informed decision making. Its privilege log normalization streamlines the tedious and potentially error filled task of assembling custodian names from multiple data sources.

Turner Padget Chooses Logikcull to Power E-Discovery & Document Review in the Cloud

December 15, 2014 – Logikcull announced today that it will bring its cloud discovery & investigation platform to Turner Padget Graham & Laney, PA, one of South Carolina’s largest law firms. With this yearly agreement, the firm will decrease the time and cost it takes to analyze and review data for e-discovery, investigations, and matter mobility.

“In today’s discovery environment, you simply can’t rely on legacy discovery tools to get the job done. Data is everywhere now, and that makes it increasingly complex to manage,” said Tom Crowe, Director of IT at Turner Padget. “A modern cloud technology like Logikcull not only lets us centralize all of our document discovery matters, which makes it easy for our attorneys and our clients to access, but it also makes it easier to stay ahead of the complexity curve when it comes to newer discovery challenges.

“In the old days of discovery it was simpler. All law firms needed was an image viewer and basic search capability to complete a discovery project,” said Andy Wilson, co-founder and CEO of Logikcull. “Nowadays, that won’t cut it. The data is too complex, and too vast for these legacy tools to keep up. Turner Padget is ahead of the curve. They see this change happening and they’re doing something about it. Which is why we’re thrilled to have them as a new customer.”

Logikcull Launches a Drag-And-Drop Litigation Database Import Tool That Anyone Can Use

WASHINGTON, DC, October 27, 2014 – Logikcull announced today the launch of its drag-and-drop litigation database import tool. Designed not only for IT teams, but also for less technical attorneys and paralegals. This breakthrough in litigation technology will enable anyone to easily import litigation databases (i.e. Concordance, Summation, etc.) into a modern discovery platform.

In order for discovery to work efficiently, information (i.e. documents, emails, pictures, etc.) needs to be seamlessly exchanged between parties. However, the methods involved in the current system result in information changing hands in an overly complex, slow and inefficient manner. Highly skilled technical experts are required to massage and manage the data exchanged between parties, commonly in the form of “load files.” During this exchange, hundreds of technical details can go wrong, resulting in missed deadlines and frustrated legal teams….Read more

There are tools, which can leverage next generation search technology, assist defense counsel in evaluating potential liability and enable strategic planning.  ECA can empower proportional budgeting for litigation or determining reasonable settlement values.
