Multiple Applications in the Legal Proceedings.
Nexidia works with law firms, corporate legal departments, and regulators to handle discovery and compliance requirements for many types of audio information. Due to the confidential nature of most proceedings, the details of legal projects outlined below are limited to general information.
Audio Discovery in the Regulatory Arena
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and OfCom in the UK all use Nexidia for investigations into company transactions. A growing body of energy trading companies and financial services companies also use Nexidia to help them review recordings for both regulatory and litigation requests. Nexidia is also used for audio investigations into a variety of commercial activities.
Patent/trademark, contractual, and employment disputes are particularly subject to large volumes of audio content. In several matters, Nexidia has worked with multiple litigants to provide a mutually cost-effective and efficient, all parties review platform.
Corporate Voicemail Compliance
Many companies have deployed Unified Messaging Systems that store voicemails in the email inbox, creating potential discovery issues. After spending hundreds of hours listening to audio and video recordings in one matter, a California high-tech company’s legal staff knew there must be a better way to review the content, they implemented Nexidia’s Forensic Search in its legal department.
Wiretap & Criminal Matters
Nexidia can even support the search of audio in wiretaps and criminal matters. In one case, defense counsel was handed several hundred hours of inmate recordings by the prosecution... with no guidance as to what was in the calls.
