Another Legaltech Has Come and Gone – Redefining Document Review

eDiscovery Professionals 2018 BOLO

With LegalTech (or should I say LegalWeek) approaching in the next few weeks, I’ve read a bunch of articles/blogs lately about legal technology trends to be on the lookout (BOLO) for in 2018.  Most, if not all, of these musings have been centered on law firm and in-house counsel usage and the tech they need […]

Let’s Stop Calling AI, AI

I was asked this week what my least favorite eDiscovery buzzword was and without hesitation I responded “AI”.  AI, as in, artificial intelligence, is one of those terms that makes me cringe whenever I hear it spoken in terms of the legal industry.

Part 3: The 6 Phases of an Advanced Ransomware Threat

The vast majority of ransomware attacks target a region or demographic, but there are some that are strategically selected to do the most damage and make the largest profit.  Extortionists go through great effort to penetrate a business, and the ransom demands for these Advanced Ransomware Threats (ARTs) far exceed those for a typical attack.

TAR – How not IF

Technology Assisted Review, or TAR as it’s more widely known, is a confusing topic for anyone in the eDiscovery world, but I fear that it’s most confusing for those at the law firm or in-house counsel office who are trying to explain it to the court, opposing counsel or to their own teams.
