My Basic Plan for Document Reviews – The Bottom Line Driven Approach – Part III


An article by Ralph Losey, Esq., appearing on his blog e-Discovery Team®.  This is part 3 in a series that looks at issues that pertain to making document review costs more predictable.  Part 3 focuses primarily on the speed of the review, and states, “This is especially true of the SMEs’ first-pass work. You need to do some sampling to see what review rates apply. How long will it take these particular SMEs to do the tasks assigned to them in this case with this data. Sampling is the only reliable way to do that, especially when it comes to the all important prevalence calculations. As a general rule of thumb I have found that the higher the prevalence, the lower the review speed and thus higher the cost.”
