Morningside's Ascent eDiscovery experts partner with your litigation team to ease the burden of complex document review projects every step of the way, from culling and processing raw data to creating and delivering productions. Our project managers assist you and your colleagues in defining and implementing document review strategies and practices that minimize the review burden, improve review efficiency and accuracy and reduce litigation costs.
Our eDiscovery specialists also provide project-related administrative services like application configuration, populating databases and creating end-users, freeing you and your team to focus on reviewing documents, developing case strategies and protecting your client's legal interests.
Using a consultive approach, our Ascent eDiscovery team works with you to develop and execute processing strategies that reduce your review burden by analyzing the metadata of electronically stored information (ESI) to identify documents that may be discoverable while simultaneously eliminating content that is not subject to review.
Ascent eDiscovery platform integrates Ipro's Open Discovery, giving you access to some of the legal industry's most advanced document review technologies within a secure, collaborative environment, including "Visual Searching,” ECA, and Active Learning.
As an extension of your team, Ascent eDiscovery project managers use these technologies to combine document metadata, concepts, timelines and other search criteria to quickly, easily and accurately identify and assess ESI that strengthens or weakens a legal position. Whether used individually or in combination with each other, Visual Searching, ECA, and Active Learning provide the deep insight into document sets and communication patterns that are needed to minimize the review burden, prioritize the review order and zero in on relevant content.
The Ascent eDiscovery environment incorporates Ipro’s Open Discovery application suite to put documents and pre-selected metadata at the center of attention in a configurable search results table, allowing you to assess whether your search criteria captured the sought-after documents.
The Ascent eDiscovery platform's Document Viewer uses a clean, intuitive interface to render documents as they appear in their native application and includes configurable coding forms and tag palettes that enable you to identify the responsive documents and apply issue tags. ESI displayed in the Document Viewer is accompanied by metadata and extracted text, as well as images that can be annotated and redacted for production.
