Andy Wilson is the CEO of Logikcull, an e-discovery company that (in his words) aims to “democratize the process of discovery.” With over 1,300 law firm clients, Logikcull has been responsible for helping process many terabytes of valuable data. And as a result, they have their finger on the pulse of digital discovery in a way that few lawyers could hope to have.

In this episode Andy explains why lawyers handling digital data should treat that data as a modern crime scene, and what proper handling of the data looks like.

He and Ernie also discuss why small firms are in a unique position to take on cases with large data sets that corporate clients previously would have only hired large law firms to handle.
