Document review is typically the most expensive phase of a discovery project, even with the sophisticated tools and techniques available today. Past studies have attributed more than half of discovery costs to review. The reason for these costs is the need for qualified people to spend time looking at many documents to make nuanced determinations about their relevance, their privilege, and more.
The total time required can be in the hundreds or thousands of hours, and the quality and consistency of all those hours of work must be ensured so that complete responses can be provided and inadvertent disclosure of privileged or confidential materials can be avoided. In this free Practice Guide, Consilio Director of Education Matthew Verga, Esq., discusses review fundamentals all practitioners should know to help you meet these challenges.
