FTI In Action on a Complex Second Request
Large defense contractor
Collect, process, review and produce documents for second request.
Nearly two terabytes of data located in five different countries including the EU. International Traffic in Arms (ITAR) Regulations required multilingual US citizens to conduct review.
FTI team advised on data privacy then collected and processed close to two TB of data. FTI then used advanced analytics in its Ringtail software to cull the data set from 5.4 million to 2.6 million documents. Predictive coding further reduced the population to 700,000 documents. Using multilingual review attorneys, FTI produced 480,000 documents within eight weeks, meeting all deadlines imposed by the government. The project came in under budget and FTI’s client saved over $1 million.
