 Litigation Coding, Legal Coding

Infocache has done bibliographic coding of millions of pages annually for numerous AM LAW100 firms involving very large projects. We have the expertise you need, a breadth of experience acquired over more than 15 years in the business.

Bibliographic coding provides a systematic, standardized organization of documents for efficient data retrieval. The objective of coding is to identify and capture relevant content from the collection of images. Data fields typically include Beg. Doc., End Doc., Att. Range, Document Date, Type, Title, Author, Recipient, Copyee; as well as Characteristics such as Marginalia, Foreign Language, Handwritten, etc.

Logical document boundaries and Attachment Range relationships are critical to the validity and usefulness of a database. In logical unitization we use key variables to distinguish documents from each other and also define attachment relationships among contiguous documents. This aspect of bibliographic coding can be customized to allow for email threads to be coded individually or bundle similar documents based on title, date etc. as sometimes required for issue based coding.
