In 2013, one of our AmLaw 200 clients entrusted QDiscovery with one of the largest data breach cases in history. Because of the number of affected companies, data is hosted in 17 different Viewpoint cases, the total volume exceeding 40 terabytes of ESI and 28 million images.
Collecting ESI Around the World
QDiscovery managed a project for Barnes and Thornburg involving three dozen custodians located in four cities in Asia as well as throughout the US. Our forensic collection specialists successfully navigated multiple time zones, language barriers and logistics obstacles to securely transfer data and ensure defensibility. This document collection was completed on time and on budget.
One of the largest mortgage companies in the country suffered a catastrophic failure of a critical storage device containing all of their clients’ mortgage applications and documents. Our team forensically imaged the individual drives that made up the storage device and reconstructed the original data. The vast majority of the lost files were recovered, totaling roughly 2 TB of data.
Predictive Coding and Analytics
Predictive coding and analytics saves clients time and money while enabling them to meet tight production deadlines even with large data volumes. Utilizing Assisted Review technology, we achieved all three objectives in a project with more than 1.5 million records. Using validated predictions of responsiveness, the review team quickly produced 250,000 records with no review beyond screening the production set for privilege.
“I have worked with QDiscovery on a range of projects, including several large projects involving dozens of custodians and terabytes of data. I have been extremely satisfied with QDiscovery as an eDiscovery consultant. Their technical expertise and experience makes them an important partner on any project. They have been indispensable in defining project scope, collecting data, developing review protocol, assisting in complex disputes with opposing counsel and the court, and in overall project management. I highly recommend QDiscovery.”
