CHICAGO and PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- kCura, developers of the e-discovery software Relativity, today announced that Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP have licensed Relativity to expand the breadth of solutions provided by their e-discovery practice group, eData. The eData team is a unique hybrid practice group made up of highly skilled attorneys and technologists, offering complete e-discovery and data management services.
"eData brings together attorneys and technology to meet the needs of our clients across a broad range of legal disciplines. As part of that effort, we're continuously improving our workflows and adding technological solutions that address the e-discovery needs of our diverse client base," said Stephanie "Tess" Blair, leader of the eData practice at Morgan Lewis. "To do that, we need to make sure we have the appropriate software to scale, and that's why we chose Relativity."
Relativity is a fully featured, web-based e-discovery platform for review, analysis, and production. Users can create and automate custom review workflows, build applications within the software to manage and search case-related data and information, and access a growing ecosystem of integrations and applications built by third-party developers and the advice@kCura team to extend Relativity's capabilities.
For Morgan Lewis, it was important to add a platform to their technology portfolio on which eData could build unique workflows and applications for the firm's far-reaching client base and practice groups. Additionally, as an integrated practice group that provides full-cycle discovery services, eData wanted software that was scalable to a broad range of cases—that could deal with the massive data in a large civil action case or provide quick insight into an internal investigation.
"The strategies and workflows you need spanning clients, industries, and practice areas vary, and Relativity's customizability and extensibility is extremely valuable in meeting the demands of each case," said Blair. "It's a powerful solution for plugging into a broad array of tasks."
"We are excited that Morgan Lewis chose Relativity to support their various practice groups," said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. "We look forward to helping eData provide their clients with a customized e-discovery experience."
