When a major incident occurs, your legal team will quickly begin to ready themselves for the impending investigation or litigation activity surrounding this. This won’t be the only discovery request that your team is working on – it’s likely that they’ll be juggling multiple requests at once, spending thousands of hours manually managing the process, following up on emails, arranging interviews and tracking all communications.
With data spread out across multiple jurisdictions and several stakeholders’ input required to support the discovery efforts, it’s not a simple task. From identifying data locations and custodians, to tracking compliance and preparing reports, the hours it takes to gather the required information can very quickly add up.
That’s where Discovery Start can help. It’s a collaborative workflow platform that helps you to centralise the information from each investigation or litigation and track your early discovery identification activity, all in one place.
Through questionnaires, role-based access controls and workflows, it enables you to initiate and track legal hold acknowledgments, and uncover key information relating to investigations and litigation matters. It also helps you identify trends and relevant data sources to drive collection decisions as well as documenting interview histories.
Discovery Start improves efficiency, reduces the risks involved with custodian identification and collection tracking, and serves as the cornerstone of a defensible discovery process.
