Early Case Assessment for eDiscovery
Accelerating Early Case Assessment for in-house eDiscovery dramatically lowers costs by up to 90% with Kazeon’s intuitive integrated litigation workflow management eDiscovery suite.
Kazeon’s end-to-end eDiscovery capabilities provide the most cost effective and efficient solution for Early Case Assessment (ECA) in the market. Settling a legal matter before it goes to court using Kazeon for in-house ECA has saved corporations significant time and money. Kazeon’s ECA capabilities help contain rising eDiscovery costs by getting to the information fast and without the traditional overhead.
Recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) require legal professionals to shorten the time to produce relevant information, plan for discovery, and know their clients’ information management infrastructure. As a result, today’s legal teams must work closely with IT to effectively sift through enormous volumes of electronically stored information (ESI) in order to meet FRCP guidelines. This includes performing early case assessments and lowering the risk, duration and cost of eDiscovery matters while increasing visibility and control. Traditional eDiscovery approaches are manual and expensive, exposing companies to delays and the risk of overlooking critical documents and emails. Substantial and avoidable costs are often incurred because far more documents and emails are collected and reviewed than are necessary.
Kazeon’s Early Case Assessment is a quick and inexpensive way for enterprises to react immediately to a lawsuit. If the data sources are known, reviewers can simply search the known targets. If the location of responsive documents and emails is uncertain, Kazeon can automatically discover the information, identifying potential case data stored on file storage, live Exchange servers, Lotus Domino, email archives, laptops, and desktops.
To accelerate analysis and review, Kazeon provides early case assessment tools to discover email threads and provide a visual view of message distribution. Search results are grouped to enhance information correlation and overview, as well as generate detailed reports. This combination of robust features delivers accelerated review capabilities and enhanced case workflows.
To help cull down the scope, Kazeon provides a set of preconfigured report templates and an advanced search interface. Users can quickly run summary and detailed reports against the information, quickly identifying and eliminating duplicates and unnecessary documents and emails in the collection.
Kazeon’s search interface allows legal professionals to search for specific keywords, phrases, dates, email header information, user groups, locations, comments and more. Advanced search capabilities include keyword, wildcard, fuzzy, proximity, concept and boolean searches. Metadata and content within documents and emails, including attachments, is searchable. Using the Kazeon search interface, reviewers are able to search for relevant information and open documents and email directly from the search interface in the native application or through a built-in Previewer to conduct a more thorough review of a document or email. Tags such as “responsive,” “non relevant” or “privileged” can be quickly applied to the document or email.
Legal Hold application and management come standard with Kazeon’s eDiscovery platform. Applying a Legal Hold is quickly and easily placed either on individual documents and emails or in bulk. Users can locate files on legal hold associated with a case through search or through Kazeon’s flexible Reporting Analytics platform – also a standard feature of the eDiscovery Platform.
