Customized technology solutions
In 2017, Bricker & Eckler’s litigation support team developed a highly-customized technology solution for a natural gas distributor involved in an interstate pipeline project. Using Relativity as the basis and layering multiple applications, we organized both electronic and physical information related to thousands of easements, leasing agreements and other transactional documents and managed the data of more than 1,200 landowners, 3,600 tracts and a significant number of lawsuits in real-time. The system allowed Bricker’s litigation group and the client to generate all documents needed to initiate the necessary legal processes with a click of a button – a noteworthy success, considering the various sources and formats of the required information.
Bricker’s “Petition Analyzer” provides innovation solution
Recently, using Relativity software as a basis, the firm’s litigation support team built a custom solution, “Petition Analyzer”, to help a client address out-of-state interests engaged in questionable practices while collecting the 305,000 signatures needed to get a proposed Constitutional Amendment issue on the November 2018 general election ballot. The team developed a highly-automated application to fully review part-petitions on behalf of the client. The application identifies deficiencies by scanning the petitions against other data sources, including ID and address records. Key data can be extracted and useful reports can be generated, allowing attorneys to investigate large-scale trends generated by the system and build their case using accurate statistics. This system allowed our attorneys to review over 300,000 signatures on 20,000 part petitions filed all over the state of Ohio in just 4 days. Read more >>
