Bringing Human Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence to the world of legal document review, retention, and management. We turn unprecedented volumes into information of value.

The deluge is coming

Unprecedented volumes of information are generated each day by business and government. By 2017, businesses will create over 130 million emails per day. Legal cases can produce as many as 20 million documents during discovery, which will increase 50 times by 2020. All of this data will be subject to legal hold assessment, document review, and records management. The risk and cost of inefficiency is at a breaking point, while the current tools and methodologies are not geared to efficiently handle problems of this magnitude.

Merriam solves the problem of large volume document review

Merriam acts as a virtual archivist and understands information like an expert. It comprehends language, document examples combined with metadata, and can be easily guided to focus on what is most important to you. Merriam works together with legal experts, enhancing human intelligence for the most powerful review protocol to date.
