The presentation will also explore the emerging predictive coding marketplace and where there may be room for growth in the near future.

"The inevitable acceptance of predictive coding promises to fundamentally change how a very expensive part of litigation gets done. Where large numbers of attorneys now work to review documents, I think you will see within a few years at most, small highly trained teams conducting e-discovery. It's a very interesting time," says Mr. Britton.

Mr. Britton develops advanced data and text mining solutions in the areas of electronic discovery, investigations, compliance, monitoring and law enforcement, making him a perfect fit to present on this topic.

I think his presentation will be an eye opening experience for many who do yet fully understand the impact that e-discovery is and will be having on the legal industry,” says Ezra Steinberg, the director of the Summit.
