Document Review Team Culls Highly-Sensitive, Stolen Documents From Set of 7+ Million Records

Goal

A technology company received notice that a former employee had copied 35,000 documents to a hard drive, sent copies to new colleagues, and saved them on his new employer’s shared drive. Our customer (the new employer) needed to find and review the stolen documents (some of which were potentially ITAR restricted and contained trade secrets) from the data set to assess whether there was any misappropriation of trade secrets.

 

Solution

The Elevate document review team processed 7+ million records (collected from 21 sources) into the early case assessment workspace, created search term reports of 35,000 MD5 hash values, and ran the terms across a dtSearch index based upon the MD5 hash field. They then identified and promoted for review 62,847 documents, including the MD5 hash hit documents, parent/child related records, and textually similar documents.

 

 

Outcome

By leveraging creative workflows and Relativity features, we brought the review set from 7+ million records down to 21,739 documents by identifying duplicates and potentially privileged documents. Through effective workflow design and team management, Elevate’s document review team and the customer were able to review and analyze the documents in question efficiently.
