Representative Litigation & Arbitration Expertise

Litigation and arbitration often involves parties deploying strategies and techniques that complicate discovery through overly inclusive or large document volumes, complex data types, tight timelines, among other impacts.  These strategies may ultimately lead to significantly increased risk and costs to clients looking to navigate challenges effectively.  As litigation or arbitration matters themselves increase in complexity, involving multiple jurisdictions, foreign languages, regulators or associated parties, traditional vendor partners often reach the limits of capabilities and/or resources to serve clients effectively and efficiently.

Collection Strategies & Keyword Search Negotiations Result In 25% Less Review Volume

Consilio Case Study

The Issue

Law firm representing a large global financial services firm needed assistance with an Early Case Assessment on a large dispute in arbitration involving a substantial number of documents. Keyword lists suggested by opposing counsel contained unnecessarily inclusive keywords and resulted in a significant number of false-positives.

Our Approach

After analysis of the data set by Consilio Analytics consulting team, a revised keyword search and custodian collection strategies we created and tested before being deployed by the client. Our Analytics experts (who are also barred attorneys) also directly assisted in negotiations with opposing counsel regarding the plan and strategy.

The Results

Consilio’s work on this matter enabled the client to negotiate changes to keyword terms that resulted in 25% fewer documents that required review, as well as cost savings of nearly $65,000 (£50,000). Consilio’s client commented on the work and advice received, saying, “the conclusions drawn are absolutely perfect and exactly what we needed” and that “for every hour of consultancy time spent, you saved us over 20 hours of review time.”
