This year marks the 10th wedding anniversary of Logikcull, the firm that CEO Andy Wilson and also CTO Sheng Yang started with the goal of automating and democratizing e-discovery. However the company in fact progressed out of an earlier business the pair founded in 2004, Logik Systems, to digitize archaic paper-based exploration operations where lawyers would certainly print e-mails to paper to evaluate them. While that very first business saw rapid growth as well as also made the Inc 500 in 2009 at number 181, the Great Recession took the wind out of its sails and also triggered the two owners to reassess their company model.

Intending to automate what they had formerly done manually, they set to deal with a brand-new product, eventually introducing Logikcull as one of the earliest cloud-based e-discovery platforms. Not only did they aim to automate the process, yet likewise to democratize it by making that automation budget friendly and easily accessible for any person.

Ten years after introducing Logikcull, Wilson joins me to discuss the development of the firm and the evolution of its system, which Wilson says is seeing document use. To name a few points, Wilson goes over the obstacles the firm faced in getting lawyers to trust their documents to a cloud-based system, how legal representatives’ point of view on the cloud has actually altered over the last few years, and also just how a brand-new generation of AI might impact e-discovery in the future.

This is Wilson’s second time on LawNext. In April 2019, I interviewed him in-person at Logikcull’s head office in San Francisco. Amongst the many adjustments for the business since then is that it has closed down those offices as well as one hundred percent virtual.
