As the number of business documents explode, review costs increase for Japanese and Asian companies facing U.S. litigation and regulatory requests. A recent Rand Corp. study estimates the cost of human teams to review e-discovery files makes up more than 75% of total discovery costs. Many law firms and companies are exploring alternatives to manual review, both to save money and to meet tight deadlines.

Using advanced algorithms and statistical techniques, predictive coding provides an answer by reducing document sets and targeting review. Join us for a hosted luncheon as our experts discuss advanced predictive coding and how it will reduce e-discovery costs and how it works with Japanese and other Asian-language documents. 

Topics to be covered include:
  • Why do we need predictive coding?
  • An introduction to predictive coding - how it works and what it does.
  • The law of predictive coding-what are the courts and academics saying?
  • How to make predictive coding work for Japanese and other Asian-language documents.
  • Tips, tricks and best practices to make predictive coding effective.
