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?
In case you missed it, Relativity Fest 2018 is over and in the books, bringing together over 2,000 ediscovery fans in downtown Chicago from across the global community, eager to explore the intersection of law and technology. This year’s four-day conference featured an impressive 300 speakers, 200 sessions, and an undeniable feeling of possibility.
