Mintz Launches Newly-Dedicated E-Data Consulting Group

E-Data Law Practitioners Leverage Firm’s Unique Technology Capabilities to Provide Comprehensive Client Service, Increased Automation, and Significant Cost Savings

Mintz today announced the launch of its E-Data Consulting Group, a newly-dedicated practice focused on counseling a range of clients, from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, on integrated technology solutions. The group’s commonsense yet innovative approaches to large data exploration are focused on the incorporation of sophisticated analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) to information governance (IG) and content analysis.

Led by Mintz attorney and Managing Director John Koss, Mintz’s E-Data Consulting Group consists of a cross-disciplinary, firm-wide team of attorneys and technologists experienced in the application of data science principles to electronic data sets of all kinds. Additionally, the firm boasts substantial internal analytics and AI functionality, relying on internally-owned and -operated applications and technologies.

“We are thrilled to formally launch the E-Data Consulting Group,” said Mintz Managing Partner Robert I. Bodian. “With John at the helm, and with its unique technology infrastructure, the group is well-positioned to serve clients ranging in size and industry with data analysis and programmatic automation in all contexts, including corporate transactions and e-discovery.”

Working with clients at every phase of the e-data lifecycle, from content analysis in a corporate context to the identification, processing, and review of documents for investigations or litigation, Mintz’s E-Data Consulting Group leverages its data science expertise and capabilities to maximize efficiency and cost savings. On average, clients experience a 95%+ reduction in potential data requiring human review regardless of context, resulting in significant efficiencies and cost savings.

“Now more than ever, we recognize the need for fast, virtually-accessible, and cost-effective solutions for the handling of our client’s data in corporate transactions and in the context of investigations and litigation,” said Managing Director of the E-Data Consulting Group John Koss. “Our deep understanding of available and developing technology and how that technology can be deployed sets us apart in the market, and proves invaluable to clients.”

With over 15 years of experience in e-data law, as both a legal technology provider and a consumer of such services, Mr. Koss focuses his practice on counseling clients on both proactive and reactive IG and the utilization of technology and AI to tackle large data matters. He has particular experience working with clients in the life sciences, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare industries facing commercial litigation, M&A issues/second requests, and government investigations. Mr. Koss teaches one of the only full-semester law school classes focused on e-data law and procedure at Suffolk University Law School in Boston.
