The patent covers H5’s method for generating and iteratively refining relevance rules used as complex search queries to find relevant documents. Based on direction from counsel and informed by review of example documents, relevance rules are populated with linguistic search terms and iteratively refined to increase accuracy. The resulting system is capable of reliably identifying relevant documents with exceptionally high accuracy (i.e., simultaneously high recall and high precision, the two key metrics for measuring the accuracy of any search or review process).
H5 methods and systems covered by the patent are a form of deterministic or “rules-based”
The issuance of H5’s patent comes at a time when the legal industry is at a crossroads. Traditional manual document review processes, typically the most expensive parts of any litigation, can no longer keep up with the nearly unfettered growth in electronic documents often implicated in litigation today. Not surprisingly, legal professionals are turning to H5’s technology-assisted review service and realizing substantial efficiencies and cost reductions as compared to traditional methods.
“Our technology-assisted review services, which are delivered under the direction of counsel, provide a true alternative and replacement to first-pass manual document review. Our patented method strengthens our competitive advantage in providing industry-leading services that enable our clients to gain their own advantage in litigation while controlling costs,” said Jeff Kangas, executive managing director.
