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

This was a large dispute that involved a keyword search for a substantial number of documents. The revised search created and the assistance provided in the negotiations resulted in a cost savings and fewer documents required for review.

Client Challenge

Consilio’s client needed assistance with an Early Case Assessment on a large dispute 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.

Consilio Response

Consilio experts created revised keyword search and custodian collection strategies, as well as assisted in negotiations with opposing counsel regarding the plan and strategy.

Results Achieved

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.”
