Integrating Managed Review with eDiscovery capabilities

Managed review is one of my pet subjects at the moment, in the sense that the growing number of leading providers offering managed review services is a development which exceeds the power of technology alone to change the way this type of legal work is performed. To me it is a copybook example of Richard Susskind’s warning that:

Lawyers must ask themselves what elements of their current workload could be undertaken more quickly, more cheaply, more efficiently, or to a higher quality using different and new methods of working.

Metropolitan Corporate Counsel has interviewed Foster Gibbons, Senior Director of Managed Review for Xerox Litigation Services, the result appearing in an article called Integrating Managed Review With Proven E-Discovery Capabilities, and the key to this lies in that headline – in integrating managed review with eDiscovery capabilities.

Foster Gibbons talks through what this means for Xerox’s clients, with managed review as a natural extension of Xerox’s well-established technology capabilities. The emphasis is on working with counsel to design processes and then to manage the project. As Foster Gibbons says, the skills needed for managed review are much the same as those arising in the other elements of an eDiscovery process.
