E-discovery firm granted patent for litigation data management tech

UBIC Inc., a provider of litigation support and big data analysis services, was granted a patent for software used to manage data in legal proceedings.

The company said the patent granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office recognized its “development of unique information technology used in the archiving and retrieval of historical information related to the legal discovery process.”

The software makes it easier to identify potential evidence related to particular persons, known as "custodians," who may be holding documents relevant to litigation or an investigation.

The documents, which are often buried in extremely large electronic data sets, are then assembled by UBIC and other service providers for organizations in litigation.

UBIC's custodian mapping technology is integrated into the company's Lit i View data analysis platform
