iCONECT is Integrating with Ligl to Offer Data Identification, Litigation Hold, Collection & Review

San Fransisco, CA, iCONECT, a privately-held leader in legal technology / eDiscovery, today announced an integrated development initiative with Ligl (formerly Vertical Discovery) with its iCONECT eDiscovery review platform to enhance a seamless workflow for corporations, law firms and government agencies.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and new remote working paradigm, there are new pressures on legal departments across companies to do more with less.  Enabling the digital transformation of these complex and manual processes aligns with this trend.  The iCONECT and Ligl integration creates a fully automated litigation lifecycle management solution that enables the corporate legal department to build repeatable business processes that can be managed in-house for eDiscovery and other compliance matters like GDPR, internal investigations and privacy matters.   

“Enterprises today face many challenges including aggregation of content for Preservation in place, Collection and end to end Evidence Management along with proper Legal Hold procedures during the eDiscovery lifecycle. The integration of iCONECT and Ligl provides a pragmatic solution to these complex business problems and closes that gap for our customers.” Comments Anil Kona, CTO of Ligl.

Available immediately, law firms and corporations worldwide can use a combination of Ligl and iCONECT (each separately licenced) to create an end-to-end repeatable and defensible orchestration of the EDRM process. By adding Ligl to the iCONECT collection/processing workflow, organizations will be able to perform tasks from targeted inventory of enterprise documents (including identification, lit-hold, preservation, collection) to processing, culling and immediately pushing relevant documents to iCONECT for full-featured document review.

“Clients are asking for self-help tools during the critical ECA stage where using traditional collection tools pose cost and ease-of-use challenges,” says Ian Campbell, CEO of iCONECT. “We’re continually looking for partnerships that can work in tandem with iCONECT to enhance the experience of users and administrators. With the introduction and commitment to future development of this Ligl integration, we’ve streamlined what used to be a disjointed process, bringing value and cost savings to clients,”

iCONECT software has been selected for use in some of the world’s largest high-profile projects such as the ENRON investigation, BP-Oil spill, NASA-Columbia Return to Flight, FDIC-900+ Banking Investigations and most recently the creation of a public access archive for the 30,000 JFK document and audio files released by the CIA.

Ligl is the industry’s first and only digital evidence lifecycle orchestration software making the litigation and investigation process frictionless for enterprise legal teams.  The hold and discovery processes are generally fractured with multiple stakeholders using several tools in unintegrated siloes.  Unlike many point applications that address parts of the eDiscovery process, Ligl automates the end-to-end workflow making the process execution seamless and frictionless. Ligl’s customizable, case-based workflow ensures consistency, eliminates process missteps and manual errors while achieving 4X faster processing with 45% savings on annual spend.
