McCann EI’s ediscovery analysis tool is designed to make the attorney review process easier and more cost effective
Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
McCann E-Investigations (McCann EI), a Texas based computer forensics firm announces the creation of its ediscovery analysis tool designed to streamline search results and deliver even more details thus making the review of ediscovery more efficient. Creating search terms or “keywords” are a common task for attorneys during the discovery phase of a lawsuit. Teams of attorneys work these search terms to produce a reasonable number of documents for the discovery process. Production of too many irrelevant documents increases costs and lengthens production time. Producing too few documents could result in the loss relevant information. “McCann EI’s ediscovery analysis tool is designed to make the attorney review process easier and more cost effective,” said Dan Weiss, Partner at McCann E-Investigations.
Gary Huestis, Director of McCann’s forensic lab lead the development team for the analysis tool. “We found that this type of component was missing in our analysis methods and that we could develop a tool to help solve this issue,” said Huestis.
When filtering documents in the discovery process there can be anywhere from 10 to 300 search terms. There are many existing tools in the ediscovery industry that can quickly provide the number of results returned by a single search or provide the number of results returned by the combined 300 search terms, but this is not helpful in determining the relevance of each individual search term from a large list. When fine tuning the search terms it is usually helpful to know how many hits and how many documents are responsive to each individual search term. This is now possible with the new software tool written by McCann E-Investigations and allows attorneys work together to agree on relevant search terms much quicker by being able to see the number of hits and number of responsive documents or emails per search term, even over long complex search term lists. After the data has been indexed, this new tool can report on the results of each individual search term plus cumulative results even over hundreds of search terms and hundreds of gigabytes of data in less than 1 minute.
