  • Secure, Efficient, Remote Review: Organization Administration Made Easy Recorded: Aug 25 2020 43 mins
    Jennifer Roberts, Product Marketing Manager, Everlaw; Isabela Reid, Product Marketing Manager, Everlaw
    Managing multiple matters while safeguarding client data is undeniably difficult. With the recent shift to remote work, litigation support managers and other administrators now have the extra responsibilities of maintaining data security and ensuring ediscovery teams have access to the right documents and cloud-based tools. Additionally, complex matters require strict information governance and adherence to compliance guidelines. Security is more of a pressing issue now than ever before, but legal budgets and timelines remain tight. The right ediscovery solution must ensure that secure workflows go hand in hand with efficient workflows.

    Join Everlaw's Product Marketing Managers, Jennifer Roberts and Isabela Reid, as they show how the platform enables review administrators to accelerate the process of getting new cases up and running, increase control over their databases, and collaborate securely in a remote work environment.
  • Disruption as an Enabler for Change: Transforming Ediscovery in the Cloud Recorded: Aug 11 2020 53 mins
    Caitlin Reinmuth, Product Marketing Manager, Everlaw; Chris Rauen, Solutions Architect, Everlaw
    Technology modernization in the legal world has evolved from upgrading operating systems and adopting modern word processors, to moving critical workflows like ediscovery to the cloud. However, according to the 2019 ILTA Technology Survey, only 33% of law firms had a cloud-based ediscovery solution, with 15% looking to move to the cloud in the next 12 months. Recent global events like the coronavirus pandemic are forcing law firms and their IT teams to accelerate the transition to modern, cloud-based ediscovery platforms for their remote teams.

    Join Everlaw's Caitlin Reinmuth, Product Marketing Manager, and Chris Rauen, Solutions Architect, as they discuss how firms can transition to the cloud — piecemeal or entirely — to leverage the benefits of:

    - Empowering remote teams to collaborate on any stage, from anywhere
    - Scaling workflows based on caseloads, seamlessly
    - Recovering costs at different stages of ediscovery
    - Relying on enterprise-grade security for data protection and privacy
  • Transitioning Federal Agencies to the Cloud: Finding the Right Functionality Fit Recorded: Jul 30 2020 29 mins
    Angela Kovach, Senior Federal Solutions Architect; Caitlin Reinmuth, Product Marketing Manager
    When the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or the CARES Act was passed into law on March 27, 2020, the package included significant funds for Federal agencies to expand bandwidth capabilities and make new technology procurements. The pandemic has highlighted the fact that long-term mission continuity is only possible through rapid modernization and workforce adaptation.

    One of the fastest routes to IT modernization lies in the adoption of cloud computing technology. By leveraging cloud technology, agencies can rapidly implement new technologies while also saving costs that used to be allocated to data center maintenance. But perhaps most importantly, cloud technology empowers federal employees to access mission critical resources from wherever they may be working. Everlaw is a cloud-native ediscovery solution, optimized for self-service and instant deployment. Already equipped to support the federal government’s IT transformation, Everlaw expedites procurement for quicker access to an integrated, modern ediscovery solution.

    This webinar series will focus on the considerations of federal agencies as they make the transition to the cloud, with the focus being on finding the right functionality fit. In this webinar we will discuss:

    - Features vs. Functionality - what’s the difference and why does it matter?
    - How to prioritize the functionality that matters most for mission performance.
    - Balance cost with technical requirements - how to find a balance between budgetary constraints and a technically acceptable solution.

    - Understanding how Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) models impact security obligations

    - The non-technical impacts of security decisions including impact on business functions, workflows and ethical/legal obligations.
  • How to Efficiently Respond to DSARs Recorded: Jun 9 2020 61 mins
    Gregory Campbell, Chirag Zaveri
    In the first year and a half since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect, over 275,000 complaints were filed and over £400M in fines issued. Some 70% of surveyed businesses worldwide failed to address requests made from individuals seeking to obtain a copy of their personal data as required by GDPR within the one-month time limit, indicating that organisations are struggling with higher volumes of Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR) under tighter timelines. The recent pandemic has also forced organisations to deal with the additional complexity of maintaining business productivity and collaboration among remote employees. Organisations are faced with how to respond to a DSAR, quickly, securely and cost-effectively, with a mostly remote workforce. With Everlaw, organisations are able to quickly discover unstructured data, reveal the relevant underlying information, and collaboratively act on these requests in a timely manner.

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    - The challenges experienced by organisations in respect of DSARs under the GDPR and how the Everlaw platform can help to overcome these

    - Opportunities for workflow optimisation and automation during DSAR review, including the identification of personal data and leveraging batch redactions

    - The use of Everlaw’s narrative building toolkit to provide the additional information that organisations are required to supply under the GDPR
  • Metadata: The Key to Understanding Your Document Corpus Recorded: Jun 2 2020 57 mins
    Alexis Hayman, Steven Scholtz
    Understanding metadata and its role in ediscovery is key for attorneys to provide competent representation under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct. Yet for many attorneys, metadata remains a mystery. Without a basic understanding of what metadata is, where it comes from, and how to leverage it during document review, it can be challenging to conduct effective early case assessment or craft an effective review strategy. This has far-reaching implications later in the process of litigation or investigations in terms of meeting case deadlines while controlling costs, and ultimately delivering results that satisfy clients.

    Join this webinar to improve your understanding and create a working knowledge of what ingestion is. Plus, you will learn:

    - The basics of data collection, metadata, and how metadata functions in ediscovery.
    - Why data ingestion is important to the practice of law.
    - Improve your understanding of ediscovery and why it's essential in providing competent representation.
  • Emerging Claims and Trends in COVID-19 Litigation Recorded: May 20 2020 61 mins
    Jennifer Roberts, Adam Levitt
    As individuals, companies, and government bodies are quickly responding to the coronavirus pandemic, the legal profession is anticipating a spate of litigation on how the crisis has been handled and its impact on society. With nearly 800 claims filed in less than 2 months, COVID-19 has not only changed how lawyers work but the substantive causes of action they pursue for their clients. DiCello Levitt Gutzler was among those first firms, who filed a lawsuit on behalf of the student body against the Arizona Board of Regents about refunding unused tuition during the campus shutdown this spring. The firm has also filed lawsuits against large insurance companies for allegedly refusing to honor their contractual obligations to policyholders for losses suffered due to COVID-19 related causes.

    Join Adam Levitt, the firm’s co-founding partner, and Jennifer Roberts, Product Marketing Manager at Everlaw, as they explore how claims related to the COVID-19 pandemic are impacting the practice of law from practice areas as diverse as personal injury, education and business continuity, to banking, insurance, and even securities law.
  • How to Collaboratively Craft Narratives and Prepare for Depositions Recorded: Apr 30 2020 53 mins
    Alex Hafez, Jennifer Roberts
    Post-review litigation preparation traditionally occurs over email, with competing versions of outlines sent back and forth until no one is sure what’s the most up to date. Manual drudgery abounds, whether it’s printing out copies of exhibits, transcribing sticky notes post-deposition, or synchronizing deposition insights with transcripts. All this adds up to countless hours lost and spiraling costs that could have been better spent on substantive legal work.

    Everlaw Storybuilder enables legal departments to collaborate securely with colleagues, business partners, inside or outside counsel to craft narratives and efficiently manage the end-to-end process of investigations or litigation. Narrative building ensures alignment among investigative teams by enabling collaborative organization of key documents into a compelling body of evidence. Integrated deposition tracking tools enable significant cost reductions and time savings by eliminating the need to print out physical copies of all exhibits, pass handwritten notes, and later transfer key information into an online repository.

    Join Alex Hafez and Jennifer Roberts for an overview of how Storybuilder streamlines litigation preparation and sets the stage for critical internal and external collaboration.

  • Three Ways to Leverage Data Visualization in Your Workflows Recorded: Mar 11 2020 55 mins
    Christina Ling, Greg Marliave
    Data volumes are exploding, with a staggering 90% of the world’s data being generated in the last two years alone. Discoverable data is getting its tentacles into more sources and types than ever before—mobile data, project management applications, collaboration tools, the list goes on and on. But as data volumes grow more complex, it’s difficult to reveal insights into the data and significant relationships between different classes of data. There is also a significant cost question to consider.

    When handling large discovery projects, it’s important to have the right tools to get insights into the structure of a data set. Proprietary data visualization tools such as Everlaw can generate interactive visualizations from any set of documents and provide key insights into document metadata, contents, formats, dates, review activity, and predicted relevance. This enables early exploration of a document corpus by generating interactive, customizable visualizations from any set of documents, and by drilling down into data sets using the file path explorer.

    With data visualization tools, it’s possible to:

    Generate interactive visualizations from any set of documents that provide key insights into document dates, metadata, primary languages, contents, formats, review activity, and predicted relevance
    Dig deeper into metadata, making it easy to drill down into the underlying file structure of documents in a data set
    Explore the relationships between documents at a glance without the need to review individual documents or conduct a predetermined search
    Leverage predictive coding data in comparison with other file attributes, making it easy to identify a broad class of relevant documents that might be missed by contextual and date filters
    Perform quality control on productions and improve review accuracy

    Join us for an interactive webinar exploring 3 use cases of data visualization that can reduce costs and save time in ediscovery.

  • Manage DSAR Challenges through Workflow Optimisation and Automation Recorded: Jan 29 2020 48 mins
    Christina Ling, Gregory Campbell
    When the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on 25 May 2018, it eliminated the cost barrier for an individual to submit a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR), potentially increasing the burden on organisations required to provide the results, and all in a tighter timeline. This has created a challenge for many organisations looking to conform with their duties and obligations; how do they respond to a DSAR in an efficient and cost effective manner? With Everlaw, organisations are able to quickly discover unstructured data, reveal the relevant underlying information, and collaboratively act on these requests in a timely manner.

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    The challenges experienced by organisations in respect of DSARs under the GDPR and how the Everlaw platform can help to overcome these
