An intellectual property law firm has implemented a new e-discovery review platform to manage its document review. After a two-month onsite evaluation, Townsend and Townsend and Crew has chosen kCura’s Relativity solution firmwide.
Anthony David, litigation support manager at the firm, says, "As an intellectual property firm, we work on a variety of investigations and litigation matters that require a flexible platform for document review that can be adapted to the unique requirements of each matter. With Relativity, we have the tools to do just that. The flexibility of the product streamlines our e-discovery processes and enables our case teams to be more efficient. The cost savings created by these efficiencies are already paying dividends for our clients."
According to kCura, Townsend and Townsend and Crew selected Relativity for the following reasons:
- Ease of use—Attorneys can be up and running quickly with a minimal investment in training. The user interface, native review features and advanced search capabilities are said to make it easy to move from document to document.
- Stability and scalability —Users can add additional hardware as needed to expand capacity quickly and efficiently.
- Cost savings—With the solution’s native file viewing, production capabilities and accelerated workflows, the firm can reduce costs for its clients.
Cedric Tan, a litigation partner in Townsend’s Washington, D.C., office, says, "One of the largest costs in patent litigation is e-discovery. Investment in really good technology to manage and analyze the volume of data involved in discovery is money spent wisely and can save a firm a lot of time and money. Relativity does that, and it is savings that we can pass on to our clients."
