Squire Sanders has won Law Technology News 2012 Most Innovative Use of Technology in a Large Law Firm 100 Award for Squire Sanders Intelligent Discovery Process™, an eDiscovery project management and technology platform that leverages disciplined management, predictive coding, and other technology to improve efficiencies in the eDiscovery process.
With Squire Sanders Intelligent Discovery Process™, Squire Sanders has enhanced the approach to large document reviews, which are a critical and costly part of litigation, due diligence and investigations. The Law Technology News award distinguishes Squire Sanders as a leader in the convergence of technology and the law and its practical application to provide clients with more efficient, cost-effective and defensible results.
Squire Sanders Intelligent Discovery Process™ incorporates three inter-dependent components:
- Analysis and Judgment - This approach begins with an analysis of each eDiscovery project and the development of a proportional solution tailored to the project. This allows Squire Sanders to give clients much needed budget certainty.
- Technology – Squire Sanders Intelligent Discovery Process™ employs a combination of technologies, such as predictive coding, message threading, clustering, advanced linguistic analysis, and an application of those technologies.
- Work-flow procedures – Squire Sanders employs defensible strategies to apply a mix of technologies tailored to each project. Senior-level attorneys are involved at each step and directly influence the quality of the results while rapidly acquiring knowledge critical for real-time strategic decision making.
Squire Sanders was early to recognize the potential of predictive coding and technology assisted review processes. “We’re not just talking about predictive coding, we’re using it as part of a disciplined process to deliver better, more cost efficient and defensible results to our clients,” said Scott A. Kane, Chair of Squire Sanders eDiscovery & Data Management Practice. “Our investment in the Squire Sanders Intelligent Discovery Process™ has paid off not only in terms of client review costs, but also in terms of quality, strategic decision-making and budgeting accuracy.”
Squire Sanders Intelligent Discovery Process ™ is also a key component of and highlights Squire Sanders’ global client service initiative, Partnering for Worldwide Value®, to constantly pursue innovations in legal services that provide clients – around the world – high quality solutions that are more cost-effective and efficient.
