Not everything is a document
It's pretty common these days to build a database of all the documents in your litigation -- emails, reports, contracts, spreadsheets, word processing documents -- everything.
Some materials, however aren't very useful as documents, and putting them in a document database won't buy you much.
Sometimes you need a "data" database even more than you need a "document" database. The trick is recognizing when that's the case, and then designing a database that really works for you.
We do that all the time, and we see the difference it makes. We see our clients go into settlement discussions equipped with solid numbers and a clear understanding of real damages, while the other side shows up with nothing better than a gut feeling, or an estimate based on sample data.
Guess who gets the best outcome.
Below are just a few examples from cases on which we've worked, ranging in value from a few million to a few hundred million dollars. Maybe one of them will give you an idea for handling some of the information in your case.
