For over two decades, DOAR's Discovery Management practice has consulted law firms and corporations on the preservation, collection and management of electronically stored information with a particular emphasis on reducing the time and cost associated with the manual review of information through the use of defensible methodologies and advanced technologies.
DOAR offers its clients unparalleled expertise across a wide range of discovery services including Discovery Consulting, Electronic Discovery, Data Mining & Analytics, Document Review and most recently, DOAR Direct™, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) electronic discovery processing, review and production solution that gives clients greater control over the entire process.
Complex litigation and regulatory matters demand an experienced team of knowledgeable consultants that will work closely with you at the same level of commitment and intensity that you provide to your clients. Our consultants have been involved in many of the highest profile regulatory and litigation matters in recent history and are available to share that insight with you and your clients.
DOAR provides consulting and related services regarding the management (preservation, collection, analysis, review and production) of information in government disputes, internal investigations, civil litigation and white collar criminal prosecutions. In this context, we have supported some of the largest, most complex matters in recent history. These include securities class actions, anti-trust suits, multi-party intellectual property disputes before the ITC and in federal court, and most of the high profile white collar criminal matters over the past 10 years. DOAR also routinely consults on matters involving international clients in FCPA actions, government disputes and civil litigation.
DOAR has helped pioneer the electronic discovery industry by providing the cutting edge technologies to filter, process and produce electronically stored information (ESI). Our focus is not on driving large volumes of ESI through an electronic discovery processing solution; rather, we advise our clients as to what needs to be processed by evaluating their data in the context of state and federal rules, industry guidelines, common sense and our years of experience. Our innovative solutions to handling electronic evidence have always been years ahead of the market.
DOAR has developed a unique advanced data mining and analytics methodology. Using analytics-driven categorization, our approach can significantly reduce the time and cost associated with traditional document review efforts by using Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to group, segregate and compare documents by concept (as opposed to nouns and noun phrases). DOAR's consultants, using analytics, in conjunction with the legal team can significantly reduce the amount of information that needs to be reviewed by performing an irrelevancy analysis and then categorizing the remaining relevant documents to assist in issue analysis and streamlined document review. DOAR's methodology will allow you to consider avoiding the costly manual review of electronic documents altogether.
DOAR provides the expertise, people, process, systems and facilities required to conduct any sized document review. Our managed review teams make sure that the criteria is properly defined, and the staffing levels accurately planned, so that every review is done as cost-effective as possible, on time and at the highest quality. We have managed teams of dozens of attorneys on matters involving millions of documents and have the flexibility to design and deliver the review of thousands of documents. Our teams include paralegals and attorneys across the United States as well as in India. By offering a global staffing solution, our clients can take advantage of our scale, multi-language capabilities and the economics of offshore resources.
