eDiscovery Point Wants to Put Lawyers Back in Charge of Their Cases

By Neil J. Squillante | Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Today's issue of TL NewsWire covers cloud ediscovery software designed with the help of litigators that includes free processing (see article below), a practice management app with integrated online payments, a project management app with automated workflows, and an over-the-top television service for news junkies. Don't miss the next issue.

The rise of ediscovery added an additional layer of complexity for lawyers and their teams. Faced with abstruse technology and pricing, some lawyers ignored ediscovery altogether, missing out on all the juicy evidence in email and social media. Fortunately, technology marches on, and what used to be complex and time consuming becomes simple enough for litigation support, paralegals and lawyers to handle themselves.

eDiscovery Point … in One Sentence

Launching this week, Thomson Reuters eDiscovery Point is a cloud ediscovery processing, review, and production platform with a focus on speed and user experience.

The Killer Feature

With eDiscovery Point, you pay per gigabyte only for the smaller data set you choose to move to review after processing and filtering. This means that your unlimited access to eDiscovery Point's processing and pre-review tools don't cost anything to use.

After creating a new case, you can upload up to 10 GB of collected data via your web browser or FTP. Alternatively, you can ship the data to Thomson Reuters on physical media (similar to Westlaw's reference attorneys, eDiscovery Point has a support team available 24/7).

eDiscovery Point automates processing tasks such as de-NISTing, de-duplication, metadata extraction, virus detection, and conversion and indexing of scanned documents. The processing engine starts returning documents within minutes so you can start working on them as well as your case strategy.

eDiscovery Point offers do-it-yourself Data Assessment tools to help you find potentially relevant documents and email for review. You can run searches and filter documents by custodian, file type, date range, and email fields such as TO, CC, and BCC. You can also view data by source path or PST structure. For large data sets, you can use eDiscovery Point's five-step predictive coding wizard to save time eliminating non-responsive data.

Other Notable Features

When you complete the pre-review process, you assign culled documents to your review team. The review workflow displays the document you're viewing on the left, information about the document above, and Document Coding options on the right. There's also a search bar that uses the same syntax as Westlaw to reduce your learning curve so you can quickly find what you need.

You can mark documents as responsive and privileged, assign issue tags, add notes, highlight key passages, zoom in and out, and apply Bates stamps. You can redact text with precision by selecting it with your mouse. For large areas, you can redact by drawing a box.

Assisted by an advisory board of litigation support professionals and litigators, the development team focused on making the tool easy to use. "We wanted to give control back to lawyers and their teams," says James Jarvis, Vice President of Product Management and Partnerships for Thomson Reuters Legal Managed Services. For jobs too large for your team, Legal Managed Services (formerly Pangea3) can do the work for you as well as provide a document review team.

What Else Should You Know?

eDiscovery Point works in all major web browsers on Macs and Windows PCs. You can login using the same OnePass password you use for Westlaw and other Thomson Reuters services. The company guarantees 99.99% availability, and stores your data in the United States. You can enable two-factor authentication for additional security. Learn more about eDiscovery Point.
