E-disclosure Platforms

The volume of documents in dispute resolution and investigations records has grown exponentially in recent years. It is now virtually impossible to manage any case of any size without using some form of electronic document management platform. Not only are such platforms commonly used for disclosure purposes, but they are essential tools for allowing parties to manage document review.

The days of getting through large volumes of documents by hand are long gone. The wall of lever arch files, like the slide-rule, is a thing of the past. We now use electronic document management systems, also known as e-disclosure Platforms, with which data of all kinds and formats can be interrogated, searched and analysed.

Honeycomb uses and provides a range of document review and e-disclosure platforms. These e-disclosure options save clients time and money by providing the best tools to organise and decode large volumes of documents with the added benefits of sophisticated search protocols and predictive coding.

Case Studies in E-disclosure Platforms

Electronic Document Platform for Account Manipulation Litigation

Honeycomb were instructed as experts in a litigation involving allegations of dishonesty and manipulation of accounts. It was imperative to be able to manage a large volume of records and to be able accurately and completely to map if and how the matters complained of came about, and to identify what each defendant was involved in any such matters at any particular point in time. Honeycomb put in place an electronic document platform with the capabilities to search for people, documents, other names and dates. The result of our review was a complete and nuanced report chronicling how the business had been run, who was responsible for, and who knew about, which decisions, and who had verbal or electronic conversations with whom.

Financial Services Company Data Audit

Honeycomb were instructed to audit a financial services company’s compliance with a number of key measures. This involved collecting data from numerous relevant members of staff, some electronic and some on paper. All the paper records were converted into searchable electronic formats and combined with the existing electronic records onto a specialist platform which allowed not only words, numbers and names to be searched, but had built in intelligence to allow it to educate itself as to relationships, chronologies and relevance. This made the task of measuring risk, compliance and deviation fast and robust, giving the client a considerable amount of comfort as to the reliability of its processes and systems.
