Roger Miller on Investigations and the New Imperatives in Global eDiscovery

At Legaltech in New York, Chris Dale interviewed Roger Miller, Senior Vice President leading the compliance and investigations group at Consilio. Their subject was the use of technology in investigations and about the growing and changing imperatives in global eDiscovery.

The skills and tools developed for litigation eDiscovery are being repurposed and applied to regulatory and other investigations. While this is not a new development, Roger Miller said that this kind of use is increasing considerably, and extending to the far left of the EDRM so that organizations can identify compliance issues ahead of investigations. For example, he says, new technology, particularly the use of artificial intelligence in contextual searches, is being used to find out quickly if a complaint has merit so that the organization can anticipate problems.
