Epiq Solution

Utilize Epiq’s experts and infrastructure to establish processes and workflows

To meet the very tight time frame, Epiq began by developing databases in both the U.K. and Japan, allowing for the secure movement of data.

Epiq’s multilingual staff were employed in the U.K. and Japan because of the numerous languages needed in the review process. Furthermore, specialized review facilities were used to ensure the most secure review possible. 

Experienced English- and Japanese-speaking project managers were used to enable best practices, such as daily summaries of the relevant parts of the Japanese “hot documents,” which were translated to English and provided to the law firm.
