“Technology assisted review is here to stay — and it has a future beyond e-discovery.”

So writes Law Technology News reporter Victor Li in his report on the Catalyst-sponsored panel in New York last week, TAR for the Real World: Practical Problems, Pragmatic Solutions.

“Focusing mainly on how TAR can save litigants a tremendous amount of money, as well as explaining the accuracy of the process itself, the panel was directed towards true believers as well as those uninitiated in the world of TAR,” Li’s report continued. “Additionally, the panelists looked ahead at possible uses of TAR other than e-discovery.”

The panel, which was moderated by Law Technology News Editor-in-Chief Monica Bay, featured Jason Baron, of counsel at Drinker, Biddle & Reath (and former director of litigation at the National Archives);  Clifton Dutton, senior vice president and director of strategies and e-discovery at AIG Legal Operations Center; Conor Crowley of Crowley Law Office; Catalyst founder and CEO John Tredennick; and Jeremy Pickens, senior research scientist at Catalyst. The event was hosted by the New York office of Kirkland & Ellis.
