Ireland is embracing eDiscovery. But small law firms can’t afford expensive software. The answer? GoldFynch - a simple, affordable eDiscovery app that anyone can learn to use.

eDiscovery is becoming the norm with small law firms in Ireland.

The Emerald Isle’s lower corporate tax has led to a number of international businesses, especially tech giants, setting up shop on the island. Microsoft vs The USA was a big discussion point at the recently concluded Legal Tech 2018 in New York. This has had its fair share of controversy in the press and political rhetoric, especially in the US. As such, the Irish legal system is regularly exposed to high-profile litigation involving large companies and eDiscovery.

In fact, Dublin now regularly hosts eDiscovery conferences.

The majority of the panels and discussions focus on machine learning, predictive coding and other eDiscovery technologies. However, keep in mind that the eDiscovery group of Ireland was formed only in 2011. And even in mature markets like the United States, technology-assisted review (TAR) and machine learning for eDiscovery are still not widely available.

The fact is, small law firms in Ireland find it difficult to get the tools they need.

Machine learning and TAR show great promise, but they still require large budgets and large case sizes. What about small firms like yours? You have small cases, but you also have cases where email inboxes are, for example, over 10 GB in size. So, what are your options? Most available eDiscovery software is just too expensive. And, you’re tempted to use a patchwork of different apps. Like Acrobat Reader for PDF files, Thunderbird for emails, MS Office for Word documents. You’ll sometimes even opening PST files in Outlook (not recommended as it changes the metadata!)

So, where can you find affordable eDiscovery?

The answer is in the clouds, or in this case the Cloud. Services like GoldFynch-eDiscovery allow small law firms like yours to quickly and easily upload data like PDF files, Word Documents, email (PST, MBOX) into the Cloud. And you’ll need only an internet connection and a browser like Google Chrome. Yes, it’s as easy as “dragging ‘n dropping” the files into your browser.
