Nexsen Pruet Chooses Iris Arc for eDiscovery and Document Review

KANSAS CITY, Kan., Sept. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Iris Data Services, an Epiq Systems company (NASDAQ:EPIQ) and the leader in eDiscovery managed services, today announced that Nexsen Pruet has signed a multi-year managed services contract with Iris. The deal includes Iris ArcSM managed services, giving the firm its own Relativity environment for a fixed monthly fee.

One of the largest law firms in the Carolinas, Nexsen Pruet recognized the need to leverage advanced technology in every litigation matter while minimizing eDiscovery costs.

"Iris Arc is a cost-effective way to achieve our eDiscovery goals on a commercial level," said Gray Wallington, director of eDiscovery and ESI services, Nexsen Pruet. "We don't have to deal with licensing, hiring engineers or purchasing infrastructure. The eDiscovery market is so fluid, and this partnership with Iris gives us the perfect combination of flexibility and performance."

"Nexsen Pruet is a firm that closely follows developments in the eDiscovery market and leverages its technology accordingly," said Andrew Shimek, Esq., global managing director of eDiscovery at Epiq Systems. "Staying on top of the rapidly changing landscape is key in this industry."

"I would recommend Iris EMS to other medium-size firms," said Wallington. "With Iris, the cost to have Relativity is one and done. It's so much better than trying to house it yourself."

Wallington hopes to eventually create a business environment where the firm can become an eDiscovery and document review shop as a result of the partnership.
