Logik, the leader in cloud-based eDiscovery, today announced the creation of a new feature to automatically detect and flag potentially privileged communication between a lawyer and a client. The newly announced feature is available immediately for all users.
Emails between attorneys and their clients are commonly protected by attorney-client privilege. Like what someone might tell their doctor, privileged emails can be very revealing, so letting a privileged email slip through the cracks into a document production can result in disaster. Not only is it embarrassing, but it can be extremely damaging to a case or to an attorney's career.
"Our approach was as simple as it was novel," said Andy Wilson, CEO and co-founder of Logik. "When you upload your email data, whether it's in the form of a PST, MSG, NSF, or EML, Logikcull will automatically scan the From, To, CC, and BCC fields of the email for known attorney email addresses. If it finds a match the email is flagged as Potentially Privileged."
An exhaustive "privilege review" of all documents going out the door in a document production is the normal means of preventing privileged documents from inadvertently being produced. This process is highly manual, expensive, and commonly takes days or even weeks to complete.
"Now, seeing potentially privileged emails in Logikcull is as easy as clicking the "Potentially Privileged" tag in our comprehensive list of filters," said CTO and Logik co-founder, Sheng Yang. "In one-click potentially privileged emails come into view. This could be dozens, or even tens-of-thousands, of emails depending on your case size."
Instead of spending days or weeks trying to find potentially privileged content, Logikcull customers can now, in one-click, recall all emails marked as potentially privileged. This does not, however, replace the careful process of ensuring no privileged emails are inadvertently produced. The potentially privileged tag is merely a helpful guide that will save Logikcull users time and money.
There will always be a need to perform a final privilege review, but with Logikcull's Potentially Privileged feature now you can focus your effort where it is most likely to impart a meaningful result: with known attorney communications.
