eDJ Brief: ALTorney.com

I caught up with Rachi and Shimmy Messing after my failed attempt to reach ILTACON to hear about their new venture ALTorney.com, a cloud marketplace to connect document reviewers with clients. This is the first of many rescheduled briefing reports. I hope that you enjoy the expanded content and quotes created through the KnowNow meeting features. So what is ALTorney? Rachi and Shimmy Messing [...]

eDJ Brief: Knovos

It has been a while since I caught up with my friend Joe Bartolo. Knovos has evolved from their service provider roots (Capital Novus) into a broad, diverse legal technology company. Despite Relativity’s dominance of the large matter review market, mid-market players like Knovos seem to be gaining traction with usable, focused products that meet specific customer requirements. eDiscovery functionality, performance and innovation can [...]

.Fluid Office Files – Are You Ready for Them?

Fluid Office files are Microsoft’s next generation of dynamic collaboration documents for Teams Chat and other communication channels. Multiple users will be able to simultaneously edit tables, agendas and task lists within M365 online mailbox, SharePoint sites and Teams chats. “Google Docs on steroids” indeed. Thankfully, the default OneDrive and SharePoint storage locations mean that existing preservation functionality covers new .Fluid files created by [...]

How Legal Tech Dies: eDiscovery Point

Lost in all the hype around market consolidation and IPOs is the sad truth that the vast majority of legal technology is destined to end up in the digital dust bin. Thompson Reuters announced the retirement of eDiscovery Point by June 2022. Launched in 2016 and fueled by the CaseLogistix IP/talent TR acquired in 2010, eDiscovery Point never seemed to gain market traction against [...]

eDJ Brief: Exterro’s New Review Platform

A.I. driven review platforms seem to be a hot trend. First Reveal Data, followed by Relativity’s acquisition of Text IQ and now Exterro releasing a new review offering based on ‘deep learning’.  I always want to understand the tech and mythologies underlying solutions. Ajith Samuel and Bill Piwonka at Exterro were kind enough to walk me through Exterro’s investments in A.I. going back to [...]

eDJ Brief: ZyLab ONE

Slowly but surely I am resuming regular briefings with providers. I remember when ZyLab first jumped into the US eDiscovery market with their hybrid archive/investigation tool. Thanks to Scott Hunter for walking me through their most recent release. In my not-always humble opinion, ZyLab always reminded me of Nuix. An innovative, independent architecture paired with a techie GUI that lagged the US market leader’s [...]

Time to Review Covid Prevention Program – Again

In the prior administration, I highlighted the challenge of constantly changing OSHA/state/CDC website guidelines. We now have the advantage of hindsight, extended scientific research and hopefully guidance based on science rather than politics. The Gibbons alert includes a good summary checklist of prevention program elements. My recommendation is to review your existing prevention program against the minor changes and verify that you did indeed [...]

Nuggets of Gold from a TAR Fight – Pt 2

I wanted to take advantage of Rob Robinson’s timely release of his Winter 2021 eDiscovery Pricing Survey Results and compare a few key prices with those I calculated in my blog analysis of the TAR fight order in Lawson v. Spirit Aerosystems. I appreciate and encourage Rob to keep running his surveys. Seventy nine respondents (n=79) is quite respectable given the recent proliferation of [...]

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 [...]
