Secure Remote Review Case Study
A life sciences IP patent litigation review was initially staffed with a team of attorneys having both relevant legal expertise and Master degrees in specific biomedical subject areas. However, six months into the review, the production of tens of thousands of complex documents by opposing counsel required a PhD level of subject matter expertise for accurate understanding and issue coding.
The combination of legal, academic and Relativity document review specific expertise challenged the traditional on-site model. Finding the right experts within commuting distance to an existing – or even a temporary review center would be an insurmountable hurdle, regardless of the client’s time and cost constraints.
The Advanced Discovery Managed Review team leveraged their national search expertise and resources to identify, vet and background check potential attorneys to add to the existing document review team: five JD/PhD candidates were selected from five different states across the country, including CA, FL, OH, NJ and NY.
Advanced Discovery integrated the remote reviewers using a virtual desktop solution, with remote oversight, that included the same high-level of security standards and data privacy restrictions governing their on-site review center colleagues. Specific workflows were created to ensure that higher-level documents were reviewed solely by the PhD-level attorneys; a 70-issue code panel was also specifically designed for this critical subset of reviewers.
Advanced Discovery met the client’s deadline and increased the quality and efficiency of the review by having the expertise to implement and manage both traditional on-site and secure remote review teams. The JD-PhD reviewers were able to summarize and code tens of thousands of highly complex documents to improve the client’s preparation for witness deposition and motion practice.
“We would have been hard pressed to find this number of high level candidates if we were limited by geography. It was more critical to have the right documents get to the right experts – regardless of where they were located. Most eDiscovery companies don’t have the resources or technical expertise to deliver such an integrated and innovative review solution.”
Advanced Discovery has deep knowledge of the dizzying array of production formats required by hundreds of different governments and agencies—as well as the wide range of litigation support tools. Making the right production choices upfront will help you manage downstream costs by avoiding errors, delays and surprises.
