iQwest Information Technology
“We are not your typical copy shop turned consultants. Our consultants have advised our clients on the most effective approaches to handling cases for over 2 decades.” We have been serving the litigation industry with innovative tools, processes and know how in defending cases for 15 years. In business since 2001, iQwest is at the forefront of handling large document productions in the litigation support industry. Our background is Information Technologies and as a result we rely on years of experience of deploying technology solutions in large organizations. iQwest has designed, created and implemented highly effective and often unique technology based solutions in support of the litigation discovery process since 2001. The company’s reputation is rapidly emerging as the leading edge provider or consulting, design and implementation of document indexing, organizing and analysis technologies that are available nowhere else. Our technology focus and expertise has enabled the iQwest to take full advantage of a new generation of computational linguistics software for concept analysis, statistically supported machine language translation tools, Bayesian categorization algorithms, "meaning" based concept search engines and rich client server application services, to name but a few. As discovery has been extended to Electronically Stored Information (ESI), the volume of discoverable material has mushroomed making our types of capabilities imperative to law firms and corporate legal departments involved in litigation. As the new civil procedure rules have shrunken the permissible time for responding to discovery requests, our clients are faced with the task of reviewing 10 to 20 times more information in less than half of the time they were previously allotted under older rules. iQwest Information Technologies, Inc. is at the forefront of this new generation of technology and has established a market position as an innovation leader within the AmLaw 100 law firms and has a fast growing presence in middle market firms as well. Much of our time spent over the last twelve years has been invested in creating iQwest's brand as the innovation leader in e discovery and machine language translation space and it is of course very exciting for us as we watch the market embrace our solutions!

Case Study: iQwest was recently involved in a case that was awarded the "2011 Matter of the Year" by Global Competition Review the world's leading antitrust and competition law journal. This case involved the production of documents to a regulatory authority that were machine translated utilizing iQwest' Enhanced Machine Translation (EMT) technology. This process involves human training of translation engines and dictionaries to achieve many times better translation quality, getting us ever closer to actual human translation. Our client saved over 2 million dollars in processing fees and as a result of their use of this process and was able to conclude their case much earlier than originally anticipated. We are proud to have had a part in enabling our client in this endeavor.
