Advanced E-Discovery and A.I. Strategy

Ropes & Gray’s Advanced E-Discovery and A.I. Strategy Group leverages decades of collective E-Discovery experience to guide global clients through all aspects of E-Discovery, including the transition from document review-focused machine learning to the broader application of artificial intelligence across fact discovery and development.


With 15 years of team continuity and 60 years of combined litigation experience—40 concentrated exclusively on E-Discovery—Ropes & Gray’s Advanced E-Discovery and A.I. Strategy Group has earned a reputation as the global E-Discovery industry leader.

Offering leadership that has been ranked as the best by Chambers and The Legal 500, as well as multilingual discovery attorneys and a team of litigation technology professionals, the group has mastered the application of machine learning in document review and is ideally positioned to help clients navigate this and the many other aspects of E-Discovery critical to litigation and investigations. Using perspective gained from extensive experience and success, the group also counsels clients on how to prepare for the impact A.I. will have on discovery and fact-gathering in litigation and investigations.

Comprehensive Services

Ropes & Gray’s Advanced E-Discovery and A.I. Strategy Group has deep experience in all areas of E-Discovery, including computer forensics, data breaches, discovery motion practice, 30(b)(6) strategy, complex privilege strategy, crisis management, mobile device complexities, document review and information governance policies.

The group also consults on the development of advanced in-house E-Discovery programs that enable clients to establish or upgrade internal E-Discovery capabilities and establish a platform for incorporating relevant new advances in A.I. For clients looking to enhance their trial teams, the group works seamlessly in virtual firm models worldwide and can provide a one-firm solution when working in conjunction with Ropes & Gray’s premier litigation department.

Global Footprint

With a multilingual attorney team, our Advanced E-Discovery and A.I. Strategy Group has extensive experience leading E-Discovery aspects of major international investigations, data breaches and civil litigation across all industries and jurisdictions. The group has served as national E-Discovery counsel for multinational clients located across Asia, North America, Latin America, Europe and Africa, gaining wide-ranging experience with privacy, blocking, state secrets, banking and other laws that affect E-Discovery strategy. The group is also a key participant in global industry think tanks focused on the adoption of new technologies.

Our attorneys manage E-Discovery projects of any size, including those involving terabytes of data, hundreds of custodians and data sets located all over the world—experience that requires sensitivity to data privacy laws restricting the transfer of data beyond borders. Collaborating closely with clients, the group often strategizes on litigation readiness programs, protocols for collecting and reviewing data in different countries, and the most efficient document preservation, collection and review plan for a given matter. A key component of the group’s work in complex international engagements is management of all stakeholders involved, including legal, information technology, privacy and business groups across global locations.
