An Am Law 200 firm represented a project developer in a breach of contract dispute brought by the general contractor who walked off a highly anticipated apartment complex development over cost and compensation issues. The firm not only had to prepare to defend this suit, but also prepare for anticipated suits between the defendants to the current action. This required more careful review for privilege and communications in anticipation of litigation than an ordinary document review.
Utilizing DISCO AI, the firm was able to set up predictive tags for several kinds of privilege including attorney-client privilege, attorney work product, and communications in anticipation of litigation between defendants. Utilizing these tags, the firm was able to go beyond simple keyword searches to identify and properly withhold key communications that would have been missed using keyword searches alone.
