Using legal extranets to categorize documents

We recently updated a interesting project for a client.

In first, many years ago, we were asked to post up thousands of documents related to a litigation for them. These documents were then categorized by a remote coding team comprised of individuals at a few different physical locations (by client, by document type, by author, by recipient, by document date, etc.) and were made available, on a secure and password protected internet site, to various attorneys and other legal professionals defending the interests of our client.

We then used the system to assist the client in the tracking and management of their documents as they closed one facility and moved the documents and materials to a second facility.
