Relativity - Platform for EDiscovery and More

Ediscovery is made simpler with Relativity. The processing of data into Relativity can be done through either Relativity's software or other processing engines. This is an excellent tool to organize case files, legal research, and paper discovery.

Pros

The processing and review functions are superb and can be customized to any type of matter or workflow. THere are a variety of built in tools that allow data to be viewed at the macro or micro level, depending on your needs. With as little as 20 minutes of training any lawyer or paralegal can easily learn how the system works, apply substantive coding and redactions.

Cons

Sometimes the features are hard to configure without Admin help, but once you get the hang of it, the platform is scalable.

Best e-Discovery Software Possible

My business' legal department has been utilizing Relativity for e-Discovery document review. Numerous documents from either party believed to be relevant are uploaded to a server. From that point, administrators access Relativity and can set up searches for specific keywords, individuals, dates, issues, etc., and then save these searches to be accessed later. Searches of specific information by keyword and date allowed attorneys to divvy up the searches to a manageable amount and was crucial in ensuring the department got through the documents necessary in order to prepare for upcoming depositions. Relativity allowed lawyers to comb through millions of emails, each one getting tagged for a specific issue as it pertained to the case. When the department had finished, it was interesting to use Relativity and see which aspects of the case we had found the most evidence to win, which aspects were weak, and which individuals would be best to depose.

Pros

Relativity allows for efficient and thorough document review. All documents on the database can be searched through any combination of Relativity's search matrices. Searches can easily be saved, copied, edited, and saved again. As well, it is easy to organize these saved searches into categories, each referring to a specific individual or a specific aspect of the search. This allows for users to easily pull exactly the documents that are specific to their needs. While every feature could prove useful in a specific circumstance, I found myself mainly utilizing two: the family tab and the email-threading tab. The family tab indicates that their are emails attached to the one you are currently looking at. Similarly, the email-threading tab allows one to visualize the chain of emails, allowing for the entire thread to be edited all at once, rather than individually.

Cons

Given that so much of the back-end of the Relativity website is perfect, I would have to say the design of the user-interface was one of the features I liked least about the program. There are so many icons which indicate a feature or function that can be performed that the screen immediately appears cluttered. With a small amount of white space, it is easy for one's eyes to strain while attempting to read dozens of documents. As well, even when I knew what it was I needed to do, it could be hard to find the right button to push. This issue is minor, however, and after a week or two of use does not become cumbersome. Another small issue somewhat related to this is a lack of "night mode," or the use of black and blue rather than white and grey, which other applications have begun to include and I find is much easier to look at for eight hours a day.

Go-to software for doc review

It's the standard software for doc review and any type of ediscovery work. Got nothing to complain.

Pros

It's almost the standard software for doc review. It's been on the market for quite a while so there's plenty of resources if you run into problems.

Cons

It takes time to learn and get used to it. My organization has plenty of training sessions, but I'm not sure about other organizations. It's a bit tough to figure out on your own.

Relativity- There is a reason it has been an industry leader for years

We use Relativity for document review for eDiscovery. I like it it because they have a proven track record for reliability and have worked out the bugs already where many of the newer are still doing that.

Pros

The functionality and reliability are second to none. KCura has developed tools for everything you can think of for e Discovery since they have been a leader for many years in this industry. I also like that it is easy to use and that I can teach new users how to use the system in about 15 minutes. Also since it is so widely used by others in our field, most folks come in with a history of use of Relativity and can pick up and go without any training.

Cons

The price is the only real drawback to Relativity as it costs significantly more than many other eDiscovery platforms because it has so many more functions. Extra costs like monthly user fees per reviewer can really add up over the course of a long case.

Reasons for Choosing Relativity

More functionality. It can do everything I want it to do, where other systems may be cheaper, they tend to lack the options for our quality control efforts and information tracking that Relativity has built in.
