The Lighthouse Difference

Lighthouse Process
Conventional Process
Initial Document Corpus Reduction
Search beyond full-name hits including variants on the deponent’s name, different email addresses, alternate spellings, nicknames, and first or last-name-only hits to ensure a comprehensive review of documents.
General full-name keyword hits, often resulting in missing key documents.
Further Refinement
Duplicate and near-duplicate suppression, email threading, and any remaining exact or near-duplicates through hash or text duplicate identification.
Additional topical or thematic keywords open the potential to miss even more documents.
Key Document Search
Flexible, iterative search using nuanced syntax that can pinpoint documents.
Manual review with issue coding.
Final Attorney Review
Requires attorney review of 1% (or less) of original corpus to determine final set of key documents.
Requires attorney review of 10-30% of original corpus to determine final set of key documents.
