AI/TAR CONSULTING AND
For clients who want to explore how to incorporate these technologies into their eDiscovery operations or legal practice, we offer several solutions:
- Our team of experts can conduct investigations, resulting in details and insight earlier in the case than previously available, at a fraction of the cost of full review.
- Your Project Advisor can design the system for you to “teach” the software. This automates the review process, saving money, driving faster insight, and avoiding inadvertent privilege disclosures.
- We can create customized models tailored to litigation types or privilege considerations, allowing you to reuse your existing work product.
“We were interested in doing a proof of concept around some AI Tools. Working with Acorn, they pro-actively communicated to me which dataset would be most effective with AI / TAR. Their expertise provided valuable insights and an overall better understand of how these tools can be utilized and applied”
– Cindy McBean, Litigation Support Manager, Honigman
“Acorn always understands the bigger picture of what we are trying to accomplish. Through their refined estimates and reports, we can seamlessly communicate them to our clients and never surprise them with a bill. They have an unmatched of understanding of how their work integrated into our legal practice.”

FULLY MANAGED EDISCOVERY SOLUTIONSDesigned for clients who can’t justify the expense of advanced in-house eDiscovery software or dedicated eDiscovery technology expertise. Typically, for these types of services, we work with mid-size national law firms, regional powerhouse law firms and mid-size corporate legal departments. We become your outsourced litigation support department and provide everything an internal eDiscovery Department would, at a fraction of the cost. Your highly certified, dedicated eDiscovery manager will provide consulting from the outset including: budgets, training, monthly updates on firm-wide or corporation-wide usage trends, and recommendations on best practices to drive eDiscovery efficiency. We can bill these services on an annual fixed-fee basis, or a project-by-project basis. Clients can elect to either use our software or infrastructure of their own.
ONE-OFF LARGE LITIGATION EVENTS: CUSTOM PROJECT SOLUTIONSFor law firms who have robust in-house solutions for transactional eDiscovery needs, but want to use an outside provider to manage large, complex matters that require operating outside the firm’s standard eDiscovery processes, we offer a la carte eDiscovery services. Unlike most other providers, you will work with a single project manager from the beginning to end of the case, preventing miscommunications or unnecessary delays. Your project manager will provide advice at the outset of the case regarding where you can limit data volumes (and costs) and whether there are any technologies or tools that will allow the review to be conducted more efficiently. We offer solutions that include Relativity, Nuix, StoryEngine, iConect-Xera and Catalyst.
“Josh is definitely the kind of PM you want on your team. I’ve been in the industry for quite a while and unfortunately his skillset is becoming harder to find. It was a pleasure working with the rest of Acorn’s team as well. Their responsiveness definitely made a huge impact on the team and was greatly valued. This project has established a knowledge of the services they offer and their reliability. We keep them in mind for all future projects.”
– Wes McDougald, Project Manager, William & Connolly
