Enterprise Data Migration
With the support of Nextpoint’s Data Strategy and Client Success teams, Foley migrated many terabytes of historical case data into our cloud-based software with work product intact. Our team helped Foley improve the quality of their data, execute the migration and implement firm-wide trainings to drive adoption. Six months after selecting Nextpoint, all case data and work product had been cleaned up and successfully migrated, and the firm saw a 20% increase in monthly software utilization rates.
“There hasn’t been a single day that we haven’t been happy with our decision. My team and our users are so happy to be Nextpoint converts! Our user adoption is up 20%… Your passion and dedication to customer service and experience is second to none.”
Construction Litigation Success
When the team at Foles & Hill PLC (Names have been changed to preserve anonymity) produced documents for a large construction case without clear ESI protocols, they soon realized they would need to redo the production to avoid wasting time and money on discovery-related motions. Foles partnered with Nextpoint to quickly address their data challenges and leverage Nextpoint’s cloud-based platform to manage the review going forward. With the support of the Nextpoint team, Foles was able to quickly re-produce documents along with the corresponding metadata while reorganizing the firm’s review and deposition processes in the platform.
“We would have been lost at sea if it wasn’t for the stuff we accomplished with Nextpoint… We were assigned a near impossible task which most likely wasn’t going to happen without the additional support and technology.”
The Move from Paper to Software
Before Nextpoint, Don stored his data in physical banker’s boxes. He used a basic software tool to manage documents, but it was too slow to handle large cases. In the courtroom, his presentation tools would constantly freeze up, disrupting the flow of his argument. So when he received the biggest case of his career, he knew he needed a new digital solution. Don quickly found success with Nextpoint thanks to extensive support from the Nextpoint team. With Nextpoint’s comprehensive document review features and trial presentation tools, Don is confident in the strength of his cases, large and small.
“From the very beginning Nextpoint was responsive, cooperative and interested in my success. Our team has been very, very pleased.”
"Nextpoint has saved me more time than I could have ever imagined on certain tasks. As a champion for my firm’s clients, I try to save time and money wherever possible, and Nextpoint is a great product to do just that."
"I’ve used all the competitors’ products. For the money, Nextpoint cannot be beat. The interface is easy to use and the Nextpoint team is very quick to respond to questions and issues. This is a great product. "
"The software is very user-friendly. I came from a big firm and worked with sophisticated software in the past. Nextpoint is an improved version of any document review software I have experienced. "
Ediscovery Digital Transformation
For years, the Mahendru team managed ediscovery projects without dedicated software. As the data in their cases ballooned, it became clear that it was time to enact a digital transformation for ediscovery at the firm. At first, they enlisted a third-party vendor to process data through Relativity, but this proved inefficient and expensive. Finally, they chose Nextpoint for its predictable pricing and extensive feature set that goes beyond ediscovery. In this ediscovery case study, the team shares how they manage cases themselves from end to end for a fraction of the cost while saving time and aggravation.
“[The Nextpoint coding panel is] really fantastic. It saved our lives and enabled us to take on bigger cases without missing a beat and worrying about expensive ediscovery.”
Predictably Efficient Ediscovery
When the McCarthy Lebit team received a document-heavy receivership case, they knew it was time to revisit their investment in ediscovery software. They had been using a tool with an unpredictable and costly pricing model, and key features like the search function were clunky and inefficient. This ediscovery case study explains how they decided to switch to Nextpoint for its per-user pricing. The transition delivered dramatic savings: their monthly ediscovery costs with Nextpoint are close to a third of what they had been spending. The team has also benefited from the efficiency of Nextpoint’s intuitive interface.
“The pricing model was so different from anyone else because Nextpoint wasn’t charging per gigabyte … And I loved the Nextpoint pitch: ‘We want all of your work. We want you to load everything you can into our cloud-based system.”
Data Collection Through Depositions
After a food manufacturer fired their lawyer in a federal intellectual property case, Lauren Handel’s two-person firm was brought in as substitute counsel. Lauren was thrown into the case just before an expedited discovery request was due, so she enlisted the help of Nextpoint’s Data Strategy team. The team collected, reviewed, and produced the first document set in fewer than seven days, reducing the number of documents to review by 88%. They also helped her quickly analyze data to ensure opposing counsel was complying with her requests. Nextpoint software made it easy for Lauren to understand the data, collaborate with co-counsel, manage depositions and more.
“Truly, [working with Nextpoint] was the only way that I could deal with this case. There’s no way that I could have managed the data otherwise.”
