Managing discovery is complicated for any company. But large, international corporations face special challenges. With far-flung personnel, huge quantities of information to process and tight timelines for collection, discovery can become an overwhelming burden.

To find a smarter, simpler approach, one multi-national chemical company came to NightOwl. They needed discovery data collected from 25 custodians across 10 countries using a variety of systems. With multiple cases pending, time was of the essence.


NightOwl’s team of collection technicians completed complex remote collections in Europe, South America and Asia in under 7 days without the need to incur travel expenses or waste time travel time.

Our attorney project managers culled down the data set from half a terabyte to just under 100GB. The total reviewable records went from over one million to fewer than 150,000 items, a much more manageable number. A team of 20 NightOwl attorney reviewers quickly got up to speed on the case and completed the first-pass review in less than two weeks. This piece alone saved the client tens of thousands of dollars compared to traditional law firm review.
