eDJ Brief: Binfer.com – What is your Deliver SLA?

I had a good briefing with Binfer’s head of sales, Nate Van Drunen, earlier this week. Binfer.com provides secured (AES 256) direct transfer of large files. I have spent this week back in the client trenches subbing in for a lit support manager. That has been a timely reminder of the transferring ever larger collections to providers and firms. Really savvy techs can navigate [...]

Does Your BYOD Policy Cover Device Upgrades and Disposal?

Back in 2014 I wrote a piece on how Avast! pulled personal information from wiped Android phones sold on eBay to demonstrate the dangers of selling off your old smart phone. Now it seems that trading in your iPhone with Apple has not been safe since 2015. The improvements in device encryption may severely limit the potential exposure of corporate email, texts and credentials [...]

How Will the Pandemic Change the Legal Tech Market?

KLDiscovery Inc.’s announcement of a roughly 18% drop in revenue for Q2 2020 is actually less than I expected. They also managed to cut operating expenses by 15.8% (which translates to a loss of people and office space). There are few publicly owned eDiscovery corporations. The majority privately owned companies tend to conceal their financial health unless they are actively soliciting a round of [...]

Free Consultations? Good Karma is Its Own Reward

I have always done free ‘good karma’ calls for former or future clients. I am happy to share off-the-cuff knowledge, contact info or resource links without any expectations. I can see why an attorney would hesitate to provide legal advice without a formal relationship. I frequently run into questions that would require my time and effort to understand their infrastructure, policies, user practices, etc. [...]

The New Buzzword – New Law?

Always interesting to see a new marketing term floated to see if it will stick. Zack provides good context and differentiation of the ‘New Law’ solutions being spun out of firms. We have known that the traditional partner track firm model has been slowly eroding. The days of massed associates pulling 12 hours coding shifts to plow through millions of documents are ending. Many [...]

“Effectively eliminate any need for manual review” – REALLY?

If you are anything like me, you get 10-100 emails per day with eDiscovery press announcements, marketing blasts, webinars and more. Back in 2008 I built a Google CSE to manage the firehose of information and make sure that I kept up with the market. The original eDiscoveryJournal.com used that search engine to create a feed that we culled, curated, classified and commented on. [...]
