An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure—and in the fast-paced world of e-discovery, implementing a coding QC process at the start of a review project can keep it from going off the rails. Without defining relevance criteria upfront, you could be in for an unwelcome (and costly) surprise during the validation process.

Prevention can be quite simple. In this live webinar, leading e-discovery attorneys and review experts will discuss straightforward yet powerful QC tactics to implement at the beginning of the review. Topics include:

  • The importance of QC and validation for accurate metrics and defensible validation
  • Effective outside counsel roles and workflow in developing, implementing and evaluating the effectiveness of review guidelines
  • How to troubleshoot issues with contract reviewers for a smooth review
  • Maintaining effective communication channels with the review leads
