Document review is the process wherein the entire legal data contained in the legal documents is scrutinized and evaluated. Often, document reviewers are attorneys who understand the legal and factual issues in the documents and can make the necessary judgment calls as to privilege and responsiveness. When a company offers legal document review services, the review process may often consist of several stages. The legal team may conduct a first pass review to analyze documents. Litigation support personnel then load the data into a searchable database that allows litigation teams to easily locate key documents at every phase of the litigation process. Based on the review and analysis of the documents, the reviewers can identify the issues in a case.
It is a commonplace fact that an outcome of a litigation to a major extent depends on the manner in which the document review is conducted. Accordingly, the litigants and attorneys need to guard against underrating an e-Discovery process, success of which squarely depends on following best practice principles in providing the legal document review services.
