eDJ Brief: Redgrave Data @ LegalWeek 2024

Redgrave Data has carved out the data science driven bespoke consulting niche in an eDiscovery market dominated by traditional technology, hosting services and audit firms. Jeremy Pickens and CTO Mark Noel walked me through some of their rapid growth and recent engagements. My Legal Week 2023 briefing focused on defining the newly launched business. Since then, the five founders have been on a selective [...]

eDJ Brief: Everlaw @ LegalWeek 2024

Everlaw seems to be an exception to the SEC’s “AI Washing” warning about the current tech hype cycle. Everlaw was called out by several Legal Week peers as one of the few to leverage AI in a practical, safe workflow.

eDJ Brief: ModeOne @ Legal Week 2024

Matt Rasmussen ModeOne provides one of the few, possibly the only, technology for practical, selective preservation and collection of mobile content from busy corporate employees.

Beyond the technical challenges and extended time required to take full forensic images of custodial phones, the comingling [...]

To put this in context, Carlyle Group paid $7.4 billion for Veritas in 2016. Veritas revenue and share price have stumbled recently, which may explain the massive drop in value. Underneath what looks like a fire sale is [...]

M365 Roadmap: January 2024

I really should have done January before the LegalWeek craziness. Microsoft made 391 new or updated roadmap items with a couple that should be on your radar. The Purview team told me to watch for the new Purview eDiscovery (Premium) legal hold reports due to hit GA end of February. This has been a pain point since the platform stopped reporting metrics on [...]

eDJ Fast Take – LegalWeek 2024

LegalWeek is BACK. The crowds. The energy. Packed exhibit floor booths. If the founding legal technology conference is a market indicator, 2024 will be a boom year for eDiscovery. 2023’s atmosphere felt tentative and unsure with booths reporting dead time and reduced prospects. All three exhibit floors were packed every time I managed to make a pass. A well-known exhibitor, “We reached our event [...]
