Process

Information management is not simply a service; it is a collaborative and iterative process that marries experience and innovation to produce a clear and effective strategy meeting the particular needs of each customer and each case. It begins with communication: we must understand our customers’ unique requirements, and we must help our customer to understand the risks, benefits and costs associated with filling those requirements. We then are able to design a practical and cost-effective process matching our customers’ individual needs to a practical solution at a cost that makes sense. But nothing in litigation is static, and we understand that a real-world process for legal information management requires continuous reassessment of the types and sources of ESI, and of the methods of collection and review, in the living context of each case’s procedural history.

Technology

At each stage of the eDiscovery process—from early case assessment to document production—IIT will use the technical tools most appropriate to your particular needs to maximize the accuracy and completeness of your understanding of the evidence in your case. For basic data extraction, forensic analysis, data processing and hosted document review we use tried-and-true commercial tools, supplemented by proprietary utilities and processes. But when needed our computer scientists and technical experts can go far beyond “off-the-shelf” solutions to design customized solutions or analytical resources that will give you deeper insights into the available data.

Our guiding principle is to match the right technology to the task at hand, so that you enjoy the resources you need at a price that fits your litigation budget.

Customers

Our customers include federal agencies (e.g., Departments of State, Homeland Security, Defense, Army, Navy, USAID, National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies); state and local governments (e.g, transportation, border security, and public health agencies), Tier-1 and Tier-2 telecommunication companies and major telecommunication systems vendors; and the Big Four accounting firms and major transportation companies (e.g., Amtrak, Union Pacific, Norfolk Southern, BNSF Railroad).
