In the final installment of my three-part blog series covering Lighthouse’s recent Antitrust Leadership Panel on the issues and strategies surrounding second requests, I will highlight the panel’s proposed solutions on how we can evolve for the future, specifically surrounding the role of technology as presented in the first blog, and toward reducing the time and cost of second requests as highlighted in the second blog.
Second requests…mountains of overwhelming data that must be collected, processed, and produced into a relevant and responsive set of information in a restricted time frame determined by statutory guidelines and the antitrust agencies. Have I said enough to induce alarm and/or panic?
So, you’re facing the complexities of a large-volume, high-stakes, short-deadline second request and wondering if a technology-savvy strategy can save the day? Culling a massive store of data while under a strict time frame is a huge undertaking, especially when you’re dealing with a second request and a corporate merger is on the line.
With the whirlwind of Legaltech New York 2019 now in the rearview mirror, it’s the perfect time for me to reflect on my attendance at ALM’s annual Legaltech event (which over the past three years has been part of ALM’s larger Legalweek event, a name that’s never really caught on, so I’ll stick with Legaltech).
This past year, I traversed the country to absorb and evangelize the current state of ediscovery and the rapidly evolving world of legal technology. From Legaltech to ILTA and RelativityFest to Georgetown AEDI, many lessons were learned - not only on where we are, but also where we’ve been. Common themes emerged that can help propel us forward and fully embrace a bold new world of ediscovery in 2019. Are you ready?
