CHICAGO (January 31, 2018)—International law firm McDermott Will & Emery announced today it is enhancing its eDiscovery service, combining the most advanced artificial intelligence-driven technology with one of the most experienced eDiscovery legal teams in the world. This fusion of human expertise and AI technology allows McDermott to cut straight to the information clients need, leading to reduced costs, lower compliance risks and higher quality outcomes.
“Our team has a dedicated history of designing processes and workflows that add speed and precision to document review, while maintaining the highest standards of quality,” said Christopher Adams, chief strategic counsel of McDermott Discovery. “Leveraging artificial intelligence aligns perfectly with these goals and will help ensure our case teams have the tools necessary to drive successful results—on budget—for clients.”
The new McDermott Discovery offering is driven by more than 30 full-time discovery-focused lawyers and technologists and is powered by NexLP’s Story Engine.
