Reed Smith Launches E-Discovery App
Global News

Reed Smith logoReed Smith today announced its launch of the new “E-Discovery App” for litigation professionals and others in the e-discovery community.

This mobile application was developed in-house by Reed Smith’s Records & E-Discovery (RED) Practice Group in collaboration with the firm’s legal tech subsidiary, Gravity Stack. The E-Discovery App is a free download available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.

“Our clients and professionals within the e-discovery community have been seeking an on-demand tool that gives them access to many e-discovery resources at their fingertips,” said David Cohen, a Reed Smith partner and RED chair. “Our app provides a great starting point for legal professionals and helps drive progress for our clients.”

Reed Smith’s e-discovery reference materials serve as the backbone for the E-Discovery App, which also reflects contributions from others in the e-discovery community.

The E-Discovery App offers eight content areas:

  • An E-Discovery Glossary that offers concise definitions of more than 100 searchable e-discovery related terms, phrases, and acronyms
  • An E-Discovery Calendar of Events, including upcoming conferences and webinars
  • Selected Rules that links to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Federal Rules of Evidence, and Model Rules of Professional Conduct most applicable to e-discovery
  • Document Review Management resources, including a document collection and filtering checklist, a discussion of deduplication and threading, reviewer training and quality control tips, and a document production checklist
  • Sample E-Discovery Forms, including legal hold notices, a custodian questionnaire, a rule 26(f) checklist, and sample court orders
  • International and Cross-Border resources, including summary guidance, a GDPR cross-border checklist, and a GDPR template notice
  • Additional Resources, including common file extensions, ESI “rules of thumb,” and links to other helpful e-discovery materials
  • A Solution Provider Directory, listing e-discovery software and service providers, the solutions that they offer, contact information, and website links

“There are some great e-discovery resources already available on the internet, but you have to know where to look, and you cannot always find what you are looking for,” said Bryon Bratcher, Managing Director of Gravity Stack, which collaborated with Reed Smith’s RED Group to develop content for the app and identify other useful resources to include. “Having a curated collection of resources and links available in one location will be invaluable to those in the e-discovery community.”

Cohen noted that there is a relatively close-knit community among e-discovery professionals and a culture of sharing. “E-Discovery remains a rapidly evolving area of law, and a very collaborative culture has developed among practitioners and service providers. Many of the resources available through the app were developed by or with help of others. We are grateful to those who have volunteered their time and resources, and welcome submission of additional forms and resources to consider including in future app updates.”
