“Automated document review technology is a tool like any other, with potential that cannot be realized fully without the worldly knowledge and creativity that only humans can bring to bear in solving complex problems.”


Patent Infringement Case Study  – The Project Challenge

An AmLaw 100 law firm retained Hire Counsel to handle a review project for a patent infringement case, which presented several key challenges:

  • Production deadline 1 month away
  • 65 million documents to review
  • Coded for 11 issues plus privilege

The short timeline necessitated a sizeable review team proficient in eDiscovery technology, and our client’s fixed budget made accurate and reliable projects estimates essential.

People Make the Difference

In collaboration with our client, and using their desired technology platform, our Project Management team estimated the project scope and run rate. Drawing on experience from previous projects, the team incorporated the efficiency gains of analytics and machine learning into their project proposal.

We provided a cost for the review, that was 65 percent lower than the client had expected.

Our Project Management Team applied advanced analytics to generate targeted batches of documents to launch the review. As documents were coded and the eDiscovery team became more familiar with the case, the software’s continuous machine learning refined the batches, regularly suggesting documents that were likely to be relevant for review. Our Review Managers further applied machine learning to help QC and verify coding consistency across the team.

Key Team Results

This combination of advanced analytics, machine learning and careful project management produced highly targeted results.

  • Enabled accurate predictions for project scope, timeline and budget
  • Reduced the volume of documents for review by more than 50% by using advanced analytics
  • Uncovered crucial evidence early in the case by leveraging continuous machine learning
