Sift was built for one purpose: to manage litigation cost for General Counsel. As attorneys, we cannot help but approach every matter as stewards of our client’s resources. We put ourselves in our client’s shoes and drive efficiency wherever possible to achieve victory. This defining philosophy allows you to focus on winning your case instead of worrying about managing myriad litigation support vendors.
Sift specializes in managing the review of massive data sets. We have reviewed literally millions of records for production, trial prep, and internal investigations all around the globe. This experience has allowed Sift to develop and test workflows for efficiency, effectiveness, and speed. No matter your situation, we’ve likely already seen it.
Long gone are the days when you could competently staff a document review with paralegals, recent law grads, or attorneys in transition. The data has exploded and with it the complexity of the tools and workflows needed to efficiently manage a review. Sift‘s attorneys do not dabble at document review, they love it. Our attorneys are highly experienced in leveraging technology to assist their review. Many are career trial attorneys, dedicated eDiscovery attorneys, or even former judges (we often staff privilege reviews with former judges who are accustomed to making privilege calls quickly and accurately).
We can manage reviews using your attorneys or ours, entirely up to you. General Counsel often appreciate their trial attorneys leveraging lower cost attorney hours where appropriate. Let our teams handle the first pass review or Technology Assisted Review, and save your associate or partner hours for where they are needed most, second pass or privilege review. Show your GCs that you are saving them money where you can without sacrificing quality and you will get more work from your GC.
We are pathologically obsessed with data. Sift believes the key to managing litigation cost is intelligent resource allocation. Our data scientists track everything about your project, allowing us to rapidly pinpoint inefficiencies and make corrections in real-time.
Sift compiles this data and provides periodic reports to its clients. These reports provide Sift’s customers with exceptional insight into every project. In every report, we analyze our own performance and make recommendations on how our clients could more effectively manage cost. Our clients often tell us that our heightened reporting gave them an easy way to know their matters were being handled properly and allowed them to focus on winning.
Sift recruits only the best attorney talent. Our review managers and review attorneys love document review and are very good at it. Each attorney goes through an extensive selection and vetting process. Sift has attorneys with expertise in nearly every review platform on the market today, experience managing extremely complex coding panels, and the ability to review in almost every language.
Let Sift staff your next review project. Sift can typically staff any size team within 48 hours of engagement.
Sift‘s consultants are routinely used to help narrow multitudes of documents to a more manageable number with strategically-constructed searches. Our consultants will assist with when and how to best use analytical tools, including near-deduplication and predictive coding/technology-assisted review.
Sift‘s consultants can help prepare you for your 26(f) Conference, draft ESI protocols, and tailor your requests for production to get after the most important data. Sift can act as a liaison between your client, IT personnel and other vendors to ensure that the correct data is preserved and collected. Our consultants’ job is to provide you with meaningful cost saving solutions so you can focus on what you do best, lawyering.
