Leading E-Discovery Services Firm, GGO Provides Gist™ Technology Assisted Review Service to predict Document Relevance and Privilege in Discovery. At the 2012 Carmel E-Discovery Retreat, GGO Founder Bill Gallivan will Share Insights on Enhancing Defensibility of Analytics-based Decisions in eDiscovery.
(San Francisco, CA) June 13, 2012 – Gallivan, Gallivan and O’Melia (GGO, LLC) announced today that Bill Gallivan, co-founder and managing director, will speak as a panel expert in a discussion on “Documenting and Defending Analytics-based Decisions in eDiscovery” at the 2012 Carmel Valley E-Discovery retreat. The retreat will take place July 22-25 at the Monterey Plaza Hotel in Monterey California.
The founders of GGO LLC are a team of e-discovery experts who pioneered the use of clustering and visual analytics in the Attenex e-discovery application in the 1990s. Since 2002, GGO has continuously advanced its innovative technologies to provide NLJ250 law firms and a diverse range of corporate clients with e-discovery services and project management. GGO offers an advanced analytic service, known as Gist™, an expert-assisted technology used to extract statistically significant phrases and patterns directly from an exemplar data set. Patterns extracted from Gist are tuned and used by attorneys within the platform to locate semantically similar documents and to conduct efficient tagging of documents for privilege or responsiveness.
Mr. Gallivan will join a panel of experts in eDiscovery and data analytics in a discussion on ‘Documenting and Defending Analytics based decisions’. “As analytic tools – sometimes referred to as CAR (computer-assisted review) or TAR (technology assisted review) are increasingly used in the support of relevance determination, parties to litigation need foolproof systems for documenting and defending decisions made by case teams related to the processing, filtering, search, review and production of documents,” said Gallivan. “This analytics discussion will tie directly back to the scheduled session on judicial acceptance of computer-assisted review tools, including the Hon. Andrew J. Peck, Hon. Nora B. Fischer, Hon John M Facciola and Hon. David J. Waxse. We at GGO are proud to contribute to this excellent forum for the exchange between technologists, litigators, and the judiciary.”
“The Carmel Valley E-Discovery Retreat, in its second year, promises three days of lively discussion and debate on the promise as well as the repercussions of Cloud computing, analytics, technology assisted review (TAR), and other emerging technologies, in a relaxed setting that encourages meaningful engagement,” said Chris LaCour, founder of CVEDR.
