Nearly half (47%) of law firms surveyed by ediscovery specialists Kroll Ontrack have used predictive coding in at least one matter in 2014.

Law firms are ahead of corporates in their use – as only 35% of the latter said they had used the technology in case preparation. About  73% have used it in discovery and 47% have used it for early case assessment. Joe White of Kroll Ontrack said: ‘Predictive coding is finally catching on. While we have discussed for years its ability to dramatically decrease costs over standard linear review, there is a growing consensus that recognizes it as more than just a discovery productions tool. It is an effective means to cull through mountains of data to quickly identify relevant documents – meaning the potential scope of application is limitless.’ Source: BusinessWire
