Case Study: Law Firm

How Ricoh eDiscovery and Relativity® Assisted Review made unwieldy data volumes manageable.

About the customer

A law firm headquartered inside the Capital Beltway in Washington, DC, had seen their fair share of complicated cases. Focusing on banking, privacy and financial services law, they have provided legal services to local, national and international clients from offices across the U.S. for nearly two decades.

By partnering with Ricoh eDiscovery, the firm produced all relevant information for the case with speed and accuracy, at a fraction of the cost.



The firm had never utilized Ricoh's eDiscovery services. That was about to change. Ricoh, with guidance from the firm, dove into the electronic documents to determine what was relevant to the case—and substantially cull down the number of documents to a manageable amount for review.

We presented a number of solutions proven to help other law firms face growing volumes of Electronically Stored Information (ESI). In the end, Relativity® and Relativity® Assisted Review was the most effective option. With this robust solution hosted within Ricoh's Microsoft Azure™ cloud, we were able to:

  • Provide a secure login so the attorney could review the ESI anywhere, anytime.

  • Handle all of the back-end administrative work, subjective analysis and document uploading.

  • Index all the data so it could be analyzed, searched and reviewed.

  • Filter based on keyword, data, file type and de-duplication.

  • Code documents as responsive or non-responsive—allowing the software to identify potentially relevant documents among the remaining data.

  • Confirm or overturn analytical decisions Relativity made in the early stages of the project.

  • Run an extensive list of terms and phrases to identify privileged information.

  • Segregate privileged information so Ricoh and the attorney could safely produce the remaining electronic files.
