To gain strategic control over massive discovery in a complex case, extending collaboration and sharing responsibilty among the trial team has to be done right. Successful litigation teams learn what facts are most persuasive from each other. A wise group is always wiser than its wisest person.
We want to share our ideas about how communication patterns in complex discovery offer up their best facts only when the trial support team can openly communicate. We act on a single principle: everybody can help us win. Designing and sustaining an active and open network for ideas to move in a complex case is as essential to success as any network of computers.
Whether the scope of a project is small or large, we want to make the people we work with part of our planning process, to learn how we choose technology, how we set analytical review priorities, what guides our stategic thinking, how to track discovery review quality and how to stay on budget. We demonstrate how we conduct project managment and prioritize tasks, how we establish the group dynamics of shared insight and encourage all team members to invest in decision making about what is relevant and irrelevant to our case.
Ultimately, our commitment is to transfer our knowledge and skills in evolving raw discovery information into strategic trial tactics. We do so because we know that winning trial tactics start from seeds found between the pages of discovery documents that grow only as far into the jury box as we have taught ourselves to place them.
