Accelerating Through eDiscovery: Consilio’s Expertise in Japanese Document Review Delivers Unprecedented Cost Savings

Consilio Case Study
The Issue

Major automotive manufacturer, was facing a substantial document review challenge. With significant volume of documents, 445,000 of which were in Japanese language alone, presented a challenge in not only reviewing and redacting these documents but also in doing so in a cost-effective and timely manner. The documents, primarily related to software testing on vehicles and contained intricate details, making the review process labor-intensive and expensive. Furthermore, the challenge was compounded by the need to adhere to cross-border eDiscovery legal requirements, necessitating expertise in local laws and regulations.

Our Approach

To tackle these challenges, Consilio convened its Defensible Automotive Reduction Team (DART). With years of experience in the automotive industry and robust AI-powered processes, this team was able to seamlessly integrate into any project and drive collaboration with outside counsel, the client, and third-party vendors. Consilio devised a multi-pronged approach involving Early Case Assessment (ECA) and Continuous Case Assessment (CCA) at its core, which facilitated the identification of key documents out of hundreds of thousands. In addition, the leadership team identified large document families during CCA, which were then bulk updated, saving additional costs.

For managing the vast Japanese language document sets, Consilio assembled a highly skilled team of bilingual English/Japanese language attorneys. The process was strategically divided into phases, with a focus on high-value search terms in the initial stage. The subsequent phase involved analyzing documents for repeating file names, duplicates, and further efficiency evaluations. A potential third phase, utilizing similar methods, was also planned to further reduce the reviewable population.

The Result

The strategic and technology-driven approach resulted in significant cost savings and efficiencies. By identifying testing documents and large document families during the ECA and CCA processes, Consilio avoided an estimated $1.5 million to $2.1 million in review costs. The multi-phased review process reduced the need for eyes-on review of ~200,000 documents, bringing about further cost benefits.

The dedicated bilingual attorneys and the DART team ensured that high-quality work was delivered promptly and efficiently. This approach allowed the client to meet their deadlines without compromising on the quality of the document review process.

Overall, Consilio’s expertise in eDiscovery and document review, backed by advanced technology and a highly skilled team, delivered substantial cost savings, while efficiently managing the complex review process.
