No lawyer likes being challenged by opposing counsel on the efficacy and accuracy of a production. For significant litigation matters, few issues give rise to greater cost concerns than that of an incomplete or over-production of documents. The eDiscovery process is one that should be controlled by the best and most-proportionate combination of expertise, process, and technology.

Historically, legal outsourcing has brought some skepticism. As the Director of Legal and Compliance Solutions, I've heard all sorts of reasons why it's "best to keep document reviews in-house or with external counsel". Today I'm sharing why — plain and simple — this is untrue when you work with Ricoh eDiscovery.
Here are the top five myths I've encountered about outsourced document reviews and their truths.

In his recent Canadian Lawyer article, Sean Lynch, Director, Legal and Compliance Solutions, presents his case for AI in legal tech.

According to Sean, AI is the next step along the technological curve and is being employed in various ways through contract review and analysis, dark data discovery and document review.
