AJ Shankar, the founder and CEO of e-discovery platform Everlaw, likes to say his company’s technology is designed to help clients find needles in a haystack.
But the haystacks that law firms and corporate in-house teams have to confront have grown in size and complexity in recent years, he says. This has prompted cloud-based Everlaw to enhance and broaden its e-discovery offerings, including through the use of artificial intelligence, to assist clients in pinpointing key information.
“You have to remain on the cutting edge and bring everything you can to bear to help people to do that better,” Shankar says.
He also says Everlaw has added tools to assist clients with pre-litigation and post-discovery activities in hopes of ensuring that a broad array of legal practitioners find the company’s platform useful.
In this new episode of the Legal Rebels Podcast, Shankar describes in detail the ways in which Everlaw has enhanced its e-discovery offerings, explains why the company has expanded its focus beyond core e-discovery, and comments on what lies ahead for the company recently valued at more than $2 billion.
