Second Requests

Second Requests

ID has successfully collected, processed, reviewed, and produced well over 100 terabytes in support of multiple Second Requests issued across a broad range of industries. In the face of all that data, ID’s expert consultants have defensibly limited the number of documents requiring human review, resulting in tens of millions in review cost savings.

ID has extensive experience working with government agencies and incorporates our specific knowledge of their requirements into workflows that facilitate compliance in a timely and defensible fashion.

  • We bring the following to every Second Request:
    • Our experts provide support for all aspects of your TAR workflow, including workflow development, disclosures, negotiations, adapting and troubleshooting issues, and defense of process.
    • ID’s structured data experts can support responses to data and database specifications, acting as a hub for identifying and collecting complex data, by coordinating with counsel, economists, and company data stakeholders.
    • Our tightly integrated services and automated workflows. When time is of the essence, we don’t waste time passing the baton to disparate companies. Our internal departments work closely with each other, ensuring process is seamless.
    • Our holistic approach with a complete workflow.
    • Deep experience with leading hosting and review tools, ensuring the data reviewed and produced is secure and relevant.
    • Scale! We can handle massive data sets and staff your project appropriately.
    • Quality assurance. ID has robust documented quality assurance processes to make sure that all of the hard work that goes into making a transaction successful is not undermined by any missteps and that counsel can sleep soundly knowing that productions will be both timely and accurate.
    • Peace of mind. We work hard to earn your trust and instill confidence so that you can pass the reigns and trust that we will get the job done right, while you focus on what matters to you most.
