In the early years of automated litigation support, it was frequently the practice to use a database to point to paper document repositories. Mr. Thorpe was one of the first to apply image based solutions linking to databases working with Wang’s first foray into the imaging marketplace.
Breaking New Ground for Machine Learning and Predictive Coding
For the last twelve years, Plaintiff electronic document discovery has been the center of Mr. Thorpe’s practice. Under his direction, ILS has broken new ground using statistical toolsets for OCR accuracy improvement, introduced linguistic enhancements that dramatically improve machine translation and pioneered the use of expert technologies (artificial intelligence programs) for first pass issue coding, commonly known as predictive coding.
Mr. Thorpe has long understood that the field of Plaintiff electronic data discovery is a complex hybridization of discovery law and information technology, requiring a restructured, multidisciplinary approach for a competent and successful practice. Mr. Thorpe counts as one of his proudest accomplishments the ILS team of eDiscovery experts and consultants he has assembled over the years, comprised of leading ESI discovery practiced attorneys and IT specialists in infrastructure, database and corporate computing environments.
Continuous Support for Plaintiff Attorneys in Class Action, MDL and Mass Tort
Mr. Thorpe is a frequent speaker and panelist on the use of specialized electronic discovery practices and technologies in numerous meetings of attorneys, including: The American Bar Association, California Bar Association, The Rutter Group, The National Business Institute and Lorman Education Services.
