Squire Sanders partner Scott A. Kane discussed intelligent discovery in an interview appearing in the January 2011 issue of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel. Mr. Kane, a trial lawyer and co-chair of the Squire Sanders E-Discovery and Data Management team, shared his thoughts about electronic discovery and the new approach the firm is taking in addressing a necessary task in the age of information overload. Squire Sanders has begun using intelligent discovery methods to limit human review of large sets of documents. This utilizes algorithms that train a system to sort documents, rather than simply using selected keywords to find relevant information, greatly reducing the amount of data to be reviewed. The intent of intelligent discovery is to reduce the hours required for document review and, in turn, the costs associated with that review.
