Client: Two AmLaw 100 firms
Practice Area: Anti-Trust & Regulatory
Location: Washington, DC & New York, NY
Impact: Collected 10 terabytes of data. Reviewed 2 million and produced 459,000 documents.
Challenges: Coordinate with multiple legal teams from two different firms to review an enormous volume of data and produce to various government agencies in a tight timeline.
Solutions: End-to-end – Collection, Processing, Hosting, Managed Review and Production
Results: Culled the data set by 81% during the ECA phase. Then, 75 contract attorneys reviewed 2 million documents, and the client produced 350,000 documents, totaling 1.7 million pages to the DOJ, with 570 GB, 109,000 documents, totaling 668,000 pages produced to the FCC within the allotted time. In the end, the merger was approved.
Often, when a corporation in a regulated industry is involved in a merger, multiple agencies request productions. For one merger, Advanced Discovery’s managed review teams coordinated with multiple legal teams from two AmLaw 100 firms to simultaneously fulfill a DOJ 2nd request and FCC filings within a tight timeframe.
