CHICAGO and WASHINGTON, Aug. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- kCura, developers of the e-discovery software Relativity, today announced that McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP (MLA) has purchased a license to install Relativity firm-wide, hosted through Iris Data Services, a Relativity Certified Reseller and a leading provider of managed discovery services.
MLA provides representation to clients across diverse practice groups, including corporate law, government contracts, litigation, and technology. The firm chose Relativity for its ease of use, and because it allows the firm to create and automate custom workflows that can be used across MLA's global offices.
"Because Relativity is so easy to use, it will help us increase productivity and reduce client costs," said Bruce Markowitz, MLA's director of practice technology. "Users can be trained in as little as 20 minutes, so we can quickly make use of Relativity's complete review features, diverse coding options, and advanced search capabilities. And since Relativity is web-based, everyone in our firm will be on a single platform."
Bringing Relativity in-house supports the firm's MLA Advantage program—a practice philosophy that ensures high-quality service to MLA's clients through a combination of technology and expertise. This discipline is applied to every matter, from inception to resolution. The MLA team plans to use Relativity's enhanced review capabilities to improve resource management in their workflows, providing cost savings for their clients.
"We are excited that MLA has selected Relativity as their e-discovery platform," said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. "We look forward to helping them provide a great Relativity experience for their clients."
