SFL Data Consultant Anjali Lilani Discusses Predictive Coding, Automated Review on Women in eDiscovery Panel
Discovery Solutions Expert Explain Industry Trends, Best Practices from Vendor Perspective
San Francisco, Calif. – December 6, 2011 – SFL Data, the first provider of a fixed-price eDiscovery managed service for corporations and law firms, announced that Discovery Solutions Consultant Anjali Lilani was one of four industry representatives invited to speak at a recent Women in eDiscovery event. The panel focused on predictive coding and automated review, and used recent developments in the Oracle vs. Google case to spark discussion. Other panelists included Marnie Carter, Manager, Litigation Operations and Information Management, Commercial Legal Affairs, Gilead Sciences, Inc; Pam Woodside, Senior Litigation Associate, Kaufman Dolowich Voluck & Gonzo LLP; and Matthew Millspaugh, Senior Litigation Support Case Manager, U.S. Department of Justice.
“At SFL Data we have many eDiscovery experts who make noteworthy contributions to the industry, several of whom happen to be women. Anjali’s experience with SFL Data as Oracle’s exclusive eDiscovery provider made her the clear choice to represent the vendor perspective at this event,” said SFL Data CEO Christian Lawrence.
While on the panel, Lilani addressed the features of automated review – citing as an industry example an important draft email that was not produced during the eDiscovery process due to faulty keyword searching during human review. She explained how SFL Data’s AcceleratedReview™ process enables law firms and corporations to make the most efficient number of document decisions per hour. By using proprietary methods to improve individual reviewers’ productivity and minimize duplicate document review, this process results in an average eDiscovery cost savings of 50%.
As a practicing attorney with first- and second-level document review experience, Lilani has spent nearly a decade in the legal industry. One of only a few Relativity Certified Sales Professionals on the West Coast, she has experience navigating several best-in-class technology tools for strategic eDiscovery.
