As eDiscovery demands and legal tech adoption in Australia continue to grow, Epiq’s customizable solutions can help manage projects of every size – from simple document review to complex regulatory matters.

With Australian courts compelling TAR and agency investigations increasing production demands, partnering with an alternative legal services provider is a way to transform your eDiscovery capabilities. Epiq can provide cost predictability, global reach, scalable options, advanced technologies, and expert support.

Technologies for every scenario
Epiq has access to world-class integrated eDiscovery technology to meet your project needs including TAR solutions, processing and hosting capabilities, data analytics, forensics, collections, and document review services. We are also one of only two providers in Australia offering Reveal NexLP for analytics. With Australia’s compulsory TAR rule for civil litigation, Epiq can provide a single trusted place to turn to when a case generates over 200 documents and an eDiscovery court order is entered with a tight deadline.
Our solutions can meet your discovery requirements for local and cross-border regulatory investigations, litigation, internal investigations, legal transformation projects, document review, case assessments, and more. Our processes and technology are secure and defensible, as we conduct regular audits and risk assessments combined with an advanced intelligence network to continually evaluate potential security risks.
Experience in complex legal matters and transformation capabilities
Our team can offer strategic advice and assistance with complicated issues including focused investigations, civil litigation that is rich in data, and cross-border privacy compliance matters. A key discovery tool that promotes cost reduction and maintains efficiency is using AI-based technology to significantly reduce your data set that needs to be reviewed. Once reduced, it is easier to isolate compliant documents and have a quick production turn to the agency or court.
Focusing on legal operations to gain efficiencies is also on the rise in Australia, and this is another area where Epiq can help. We can create legal technology and data maps to streamline discovery processes and increase efficiency. Additionally, our consultants can pinpoint inefficient legal spend related to discovery and recommend tools to improve internal processes.
Customizable options with the ability to scale
Epiq understands that some projects require minimal assistance while others can require a team of thousands, and that needs can fluctuate throughout the course of a case or investigation. We customize recommendations based on what will work best for your team and specific matter. Our technology expertise can also help you scale down the actual requirements. This includes using our Case Insights program to understand the key facts of a case before deciding whether to move forward or to settle and providing a one-stop shop for all your hosting, processing, and review needs.
Clients can choose the flexibility of per-GB/per-custodian pricing, the cost predictability and control of fixed-fee managed services, or an on-call network of attorneys to review high volumes of data efficiently and within tight deadlines.
Local and global subject matter experts
Epiq has a roster of experienced, accountable consultants and project managers to help with a variety of local and global issues. You can expect deep industry experience leveraging global competencies in the financial services, construction, tax, and securities sectors, as well as consumer-based companies.
