Document review is done differently at Heuristica. Heuristica is focused on providing clients with exceptional value and a competitive edge. We have developed an innovative, analytics- based approach that increases the speed and quality of the review. Our document review services reduce costs, provide cost certainty and increase value to the litigation team.
We achieve these results by having counsel conduct non-linear review using powerful software analytics and processes to search for critical and relevant documents. Our lawyers don’t just tag documents, they use their legal skills and experience to identify key documents and events, and to provide key evidence summaries. … Read More

Lawyers need quick access to important records, and a way to capture their legal insight as they work. Three ring binders and coloured sticky notes are just not the most efficient or effective way to manage legal evidence.
