The task of collecting, identifying and properly using key documents is the foundation of a successful internal investigation. Yet, this task continuously grows more complicated and costly given the swelling volume of data generated in the ordinary course of business. The pressure on counsel to reduce costs is ever-present, but may be particularly acute in the context of internal investigations, where there is likely no financial upside at an investigation’s conclusion.
