As successful litigation outcomes depend more and more on the cost-effective delivery of defensible document production, Nelson Mullins Encompass brings efficiency and accountability to the process. Our reviews have spanned multiple countries, hundreds of custodians, and involved diverse language requirements, including French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.
We regularly team with in-house counsel and IT personnel, with technology providers, and with case counsel to provide integrated and scalable document review services.
These services include:
- Early case assessment to narrow the scope of eDiscovery and evaluate magnitude and risk
- Advanced technology, including predictive coding and technology-assisted review (TAR) tools
- Strategic staffing of review lawyers, including the use of our review facilities in Columbia, SC and Nashville, TN
- Project management and quality control to help ensure a consistent and accurate review
- Predictable fee structures help enable sound budget management
Results and efficiencies are top of mind for today's in-house counsel. MORE ►
