DiscoverReady to Host Special Session Demystifying Automated Review At 2011 LegalTech East Conference
Co-Founder/CEO to deliver educational overview clarifying varied approaches and terminology in e-discovery
NEW YORK – January 18, 2011 – DiscoverReady, a leading provider of legal discovery management services for Fortune 500 legal departments and law firms, will present “Demystifying the Brave New World of Automated Review,” at the 2011 LegalTech East Conference.
In this special educational session scheduled for 4 p.m. Feb. 1, Jim Wagner, co-founder and CEO of DiscoverReady, will discuss the automated review landscape and provide an overview of the varied terminology and approaches to automating some portion of the review process. This presentation is scheduled for Concourse Room E on the lower level of the New York Hilton Hotel.
“The world of ‘automated review’ is complex, not just because of advanced technology or concepts, but also because of the practical logistics of putting these technologies and logistics into an effective and defensible workflow,” said Wagner. “Our goal in this session will be to de-mystify some of the terminology and concepts in review automation, as well as provide a better understanding of how the different approaches impact the end product.”
DiscoverReady, the market leader in fixed-fee document review, deals with millions of documents, equaling tens of millions of pages, every month across a wide variety of matters, ranging from regulatory investigations to large-scale class actions. The company employs an array of technologies and solutions, both internally developed and licensed, to facilitate its identification of relevant and privileged data.
DiscoverReady’s proprietary automated solutions include PrivBank®, the industry’s first and most comprehensive automated privilege screening application, and i-Decision® process, which is designed to deliver a complete first-pass document review for a majority of the reviewable data set.
In addition to Wagner’s presentation, DiscoverReady will have a major presence at LegalTech East (Booths 126-128). The company is sponsoring the show’s keynote address scheduled for 9-10 a.m. Feb. 2 by author, journalist and practical futurist Michael Rogers. The keynote, entitled A Look At The Law: 2020, is free to attendees and will take place on Level III of the New York Hilton Hotel.
