Case study

DISCO AI reduces review population by 60%

In 2019, a large electrical contractor received a subpoena from the Department of Transportation regarding a multi-county public transit project in Northern California. They collected from a narrow set of custodians on a rolling basis, but still had over 250,000 documents to review with increasing pressure from regulators to produce responsive documents.

The contractor’s law firm already had a relationship with DISCO enabling them to get the documents loaded and available for review quickly with DISCO’s High-Speed Uploader. Using DISCO AI to prioritize the documents, the DISCO Managed Review team found 96% of the responsive documents while reviewing only 40% of the document population. DISCO’s review team averaged 74 docs per hour (34% faster than the industry average), even with the complex file types and intricate decision making surrounding responsive vs. not responsive materials.
