KPMG Upgrades E-Discovery Software Offering for Law Firms; Kelli Brooks Comments

kpmgKPMG LLP has updated its discovery management software to help corporate legal counsels and law firms reduce the cost of managing large volumes of litigation data.

Version 5.0 of Discovery Radar integrates ways to process information, assess previous cases and analyze technology-assisted review and statistical sampling using KPMG’s cloud-based global evidence tracking system, KPMG said Wednesday.

“Discovery Radar 5.0 can significantly cut the time required to process discovery documents and make them available to the legal team for analysis and review,” said Kelli Brooks, KPMG’s U.S. co-leader for forensic technology services.

Brooks added the integrated machine learning and statistical sampling technology helps minimize human error instances and cut time and cost of e-discovery.

The update includes features that enable legal documents to load quickly, store documents to cut hosting costs, offload unnecessary data and rank documents according to relevance, KPMG said.

The software helps to enhance identification and production phases of the electronic-discovery reference model the legal industry developed as a benchmark for users and providers, according to the firm.
