eDiscovery and document review

Eversheds Sutherland offers a fast, secure and cost efficient way to manage and review electronic data.

ES Locate is a document review platform that uses data analytics and predictive coding to review electronically stored information quickly and efficiently. Hundreds of thousands of emails can be analysed in seconds with results presented using interactive user-friendly data visualisation dashboards. ES Locate is an invaluable tool for our lawyers handling disputes or investigations where there are significant volumes of emails and documents to review.

Powered by OpenText’s highly secure Axcelerate Cloud system, ES Locate offers our clients an end-to-end service. We can handle data capture from your IT systems, data processing and data analytics to get to the key documents and evidence more quickly than traditional review methods. When the time comes to generate evidence bundles for hearings or witness statements, ES Locate does that too. ES Locate forms part of our Litigation Support Unit which focuses on the use of project management, flexible resourcing models and technology in the delivery of best in class support to our litigation teams. This is not an offshore or outsourced solution. Our own experienced document review team supported by data analysts and a cutting edge review platform puts us (and you) in complete control.

Key features of our e-discovery platform

  • Automated reporting software : to manage and supervise reviewers’ productivity and the scope of documents under review, a key feature to ensure projects are delivered on budget
  • Data hypergraph : uses machine learning, graph analysis and advanced visualisation to identify hidden connections between people, documents, messages, timelines, conceptual topics and more
  • Early data assessment tools : to develop case strategies in litigation and investigative matters, create discovery budgets, identify sources of potentially relevant materials and drive discovery objectives
  • Advanced analytics : built-in advanced analytics help to prioritise electronic data for review. You can also filter using search terms and concept groups to help identify terms you may have missed or see beyond code names and obfuscations
  • Security : we have a dedicated and secured environment accessible only by our clients, legal counsel, experts and legal teams. The cloud based solution ensures compliance with jurisdictional data privacy and security regulations
  • Built-in Technology Assisted Review capabilities : with concept clustering, phrase identification, email threading and data analytics, ES Locate can provide an instant analysis of large volumes of documents without the need to run keyword searches. The predictive coding functionality can also assess lawyers’ reviewed documents to suggest other potentially relevant, privileged and key documents in the un-reviewed universe. These advanced machine learning techniques reduce the amount of documents for review and minimise the overall cost of e-discovery
