Altlaw completes what is thought to have been the largest eDisclosure project in the UK last year

2013 was a successful year for Altlaw Litigation Support and to top it off, we successfully completed what sources have led us to believe was the biggest EDD project in the UK last year.  As a matter of fact, considering that Altlaw was involved in two concurrent projects of similar value; it would appear (though unfortunately we have no way to confirm it) that Altlaw actually had the top two largest EDD projects in the UK last year.

The news comes as Altlaw celebrates its decade long existence, having evolved from a reprographics company into a high tech, eDisclosure and Litigation Support company, providing technical expertise and offering all elements of the EDRM cycle in-house, at our premises in the shadow of both Tech City and the City of London.  It also firmly cements our place as a recognised leader in the eDisclosure market with our market leading Nuix and kCura® Relativity® services.

The project in question involved all aspects of the EDRM life cycle including:

  • Initial project scoping and ongoing consultation on a highly contentious matter worth hundreds of millions in value
  • Assisting in the recruitment and training of project leaders on behalf of the client
  • Multi-location forensic data collection (including outside UK)
  • Intensive early case assessment filtering process, involving Terabytes’s of source data
  • Managed document review, with a peak usage of 100 reviewers to analyse millions of documents
  • Disclosure of half a million documents to multiple parties and in multiple formats
  • Scanning of hundreds of boxes at our premises in London, as well as offshore at various client sites
  • Large scale hard copy production for disclosure and review

Altlaw works with all sizes of law firm, ranging from boutique litigation firms to silver circle, magic circle and international firms.  Working comfortably across litigation, regulatory, investigatory and compliance matters, we have a particular experience with large construction cases and have worked closely with the leading firms in this area.

With highly customisable, rapidly scalable solutions, Altlaw also has extensive experience with managing the international needs of its clients, having completed more than 65 different jobs with an international dimension, ranging from on the ground forensic collections through to international on-site hardcopy processing.
