Challenges Facing Counsel in The Digital Age

The legal landscape for the general counsel is increasingly challenging. What with ever-more stringent regulatory frameworks driving the need for increased corporate governance, to more complex organisational structures and cross-border operations.
Coupled with the spectre of exponentially growing electronic data volumes, the need for solutions to support the following legal operations is more significant than ever:

  • Internal investigations and analytics
  • Supervision tasks
  • Litigation
  • Internal and external GDPR and data protection demands

Doing More with Less

Combine the challenges facing general counsel with tighter budgetary constraints and the need to achieve more with the same or even lower funding and it often results in a need to bring legal work that was previously outsourced to panel law firms, back in-house.
However, cutting the overall cost of legal services is more than pure labour charges.

It requires access to technology platforms to support the identification and analysis of patterns and trends in electronically stored information (ESI). These enable the rapid, early assessment of large volumes of content and where litigation is necessary, the review of responsive and potentially sensitive material.

What Salient Delivers

Salient provides a holistic and cost-effective solution to eDiscovery and analytics needs within the corporate legal function.

We combine a scalable, agile, cloud-based Cognitive Analytics and eDiscovery platform together with a broad range of complementary services to deliver the following:

  • Proactive eDiscovery: eDiscovery Strategy development
  • Regulatory and Forensic Analytics across your data landscape
  • Cognitive Analytics for early data or case assessment (ECA) of electronic evidence and subsequent processing
  • Enrichment of ESI for litigation, internal investigations and external requests (DSARs/FOI)

In addition to the technology platform, we apply our knowledge and experience of analytics and eDiscovery processes to identifying trends, connections and interactions within overlaid structured and unstructured datasets to deliver a more effective, responsive and defensible outcome.

Meticulous data investigation can become secondary to simply reducing data volumes in an attempt to curb expense and time. Our user-friendly, fast-to-deploy, and exceptionally powerful Forensic and Cognitive Analytics solutions mean you’ll never need to choose between quality and cost-efficiency again. With experience in Big 4 firms stretching back decades, Salient provides the total solution for you. Get in touch with us to find out more.

Proactive eDiscovery

In addition to our technology platform, we provide a total Proactive eDiscovery solution, assisting clients with the development of an eDiscovery strategy to ensure an effective response in the face of litigious events or regulatory requirements; identifying and preserving potentially relevant electronic data repositories while reducing your risk in the overall eDiscovery process.
