Company Overview

Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, BIA is a pioneer in the eDiscovery industry, setting the standard for accurate, quick and cost-effective eDiscovery services. BIA’s customer-first focus and pioneering spirit led it to develop industry-changing eDiscovery software designed to solve real client concerns – like the industry’s first truly remote data collection solution and the first cloud-based, end-to-end eDiscovery platform.

BIA also revolutionized eDiscovery services, introducing innovative concepts that are now copied widely across the industry, like simplified flat fee pricing, data and coding re-use across matters, full time dedicated review teams, and much more. It’s because of that deep expertise that BIA is sought out to handle even the most complex legal matters for corporations, governmental agencies and law firms.

Founded by legal and technology professionals, BIA provides the entire spectrum of eDiscovery services – from legal holds, data collections, processing and early case assessment (ECA) through review hosting, attorney document review, production and trial presentation – all with minimal disruption to its clients’ daily business operations.

Our Guiding Principles

TotalDiscovery Shield Defensibility

At the core of everything we do – from software development to professional services – is defensibility. If a process is not defensible from the outset, nothing else matters. Our roots are in the fields of computer forensics and information security, so defensibility is in our DNA and impacts every decision we make, every process we recommend and every software product we build.


Affordability Stack Affordability

BIA realizes the challenges our customers face each day and the balance that must be maintained between innovation and affordability. BIA will continue to drive down the costs of eDiscovery, while maintaining the integrity of the process.


Innovation Innovation

Innovation is the key to creating simple, but effective, solutions to the ever-changing needs of the legal data management market. We started over a decade ago, building the first network-based, targeted remote data collection software, called DiscoveryBOT™. That innovation continues today with TotalDiscovery, the industry’s first cloud-based, integrated data identification, collection, preservation and analysis solution.


Pocketwatch Efficiency

Blazing fast speed is often crucial to a successful process. From the ability to collect and process terabytes of information in a rapid fashion, to marshaling the resources to analyze, review and produce millions of documents in exceedingly short periods of time, all of BIA’s software products and professional services are designed and constantly tuned to improve efficiency and meet the demands of our fast-paced industry.


Puzzle Pieces Integration

We create software tools that can be used by our customers in an automated fashion at any time, while always backed by integrated professional services as needed. Realizing that new data storage products are continually being introduced to the market, and that custom or legacy systems will also be ever present, our professional services back-up our automated software tools with the resources necessary to solve any custom, legacy or other specialized data collection or analysis need, providing our customers with a fully integrated solution, regardless of the computing environments encountered.
