Using Generative AI to Transform Investigations and Discovery

An In-Person Masterclass for Legal Innovators 

Date: Wednesday, November 29, 2023, 12:00-1:30 pm ET
Location: Jay Suites at 515 Madison Ave 10th Floor, New York

Since its debut in late 2022, ChatGPT has been hailed as groundbreaking technology with the potential to reshape numerous industries including the legal profession.

The applications for investigation and ediscovery are far-reaching. Large language models (LLMs) like GPT and Claude 2 are transforming discovery workflows, replacing expensive manual workflow with machine learning.

Two leading experts on harnessing LLMs for discovery and disclosure will show you how you can use LLMs for such things as:

  • Summarize relevant documents, transcripts and SMS text.
  • Analyze across document sets, providing answers, analysis and reports.
  • Review documents, providing detailed reasons for classifications.
  • Identify key participants, creating timelines and tracking relationships.
  • Investigate and provide reports with key players, timelines and activities.

All of this can be done in a fraction of the time and cost of human review. 

We’ll end by taking on the elephant in the room: Are LLMs like GPT secure? Are we risking confidentiality and privilege when we send client data to these AI platforms for analysis? 

Join us for an illuminating program (plus a light lunch) focused on using LLMs to re-engineer and transform investigation and ediscovery workflows.

If you cannot attend the live event but would like to meet with us in NYC the week of Nov. 27-Dec. 2, please reach out to

Our Presenters

Our presenters are two leading experts on harnessing generative AI for litigation and government investigations. Together with the Merlin team, they are the creators of DiscoveryPartner, the most advanced GenAI investigations and discovery platform available.
