Advanced Data Analytics

E-Discovery

At BlackStone Discovery, we focus on data as an actionable insight, optimizing utilization of counsel and improving litigation outcomes. Most cases center around a few pivotal documents or key players. Our advanced data analytics allow you to focus in on those documents and players immediately rather than waiting for the completion of an expensive document review process. Blackstone Discovery’s advanced data analytics go beyond what the face of a document could tell you and enter the realm of what the metadata, relationship between documents, and absence of certain data can tell you about a case. Using advanced data analytics, Blackstone Discovery empowers corporations and counsel to maximize their knowledge of their cases.

Technology Assisted Review (TAR)

There is a diverse range of technology assisted review solutions, and without proper guidance can be poorly engaged. Solutions include, but are not limited to predictive coding, email threading, concept clustering, content identification and clustering, etc. Our professionals have extensive experience positioning the appropriate solution for the data size, budget, and case scope. BlackStone utilizes a combination of propriety solutions and the industry best technology. With unique configurations our technology operations team has integrated TAR solutions into our Early Data Analysis platform as well as our E-Discovery Processing platforms. Providing multiple opportunities to defensibly reduce and categorize data intended for review.

Data Organization & Categorization

Key to any successful litigation is complete control over data and budget, which ultimately requires sound electronically stored information (ESI) management. BlackStone’s professionals deploy proprietary procedures and advanced analytics designed to categorize and organize all custodial and non-custodial data.

Positioning analytics before all other processing efforts provides conceptual meaning from the content and text of the documents, which in turn is compared to similar concepts within the target data sets. Armed with a conceptual understand of the data set we are able to categorize data and make informed decisions that pay tangible dividends when the case moves into E-Discovery processing and attorney review. Not only does this have the ability to reduce data volume, but allow for a systematic approach to the review that is ranked on a number of categories and priorities.
