FTI Consulting and Exterro Form E-Discovery Partnership
FTI Consulting and Exterro, a provider of software specifically designed for in-house legal and IT teams at Global 2000 and AmLaw 200 organizations, have formed a partnership that will provide users of the Exterro Orchestrated E-Discovery Suite with e-discovery consulting and services from the Technology segment at FTI Consulting.
The combination of Exterro software technology and FTI Technology’s expertise will enable the companies’ joint clients to reduce legal and IT costs, protect sensitive materials, quickly find facts and harness organizational data to create business value, said Bobby Balachandran, president and CEO of Exterro.
The Exterro partnership with FTI Technology provides expert consulting and services for Exterro Orchestrated E-Discovery Suite clients, including a fully managed e-discovery service, including legal review; collection and processing of data from more than 30 data sources, including Office365; software implementation and process optimization; e-discovery workflow optimization, including legal holds and early case assessment; inventory of legal holds and migration of legacy cases; and data migration and remediation.
According to the companies, for many organizations, multiple stakeholders such as in-house legal and IT staff, service providers and outside counsel, use various tools requiring numerous manual handoffs with limited or no visibility into the current status of tasks and activities.
The Exterro Orchestrated E-Discovery Suite can provide improved communication, collaboration and visibility into every action via workflow orchestration and management dashboards and reports, resulting in a more effective response to e-discovery requirements.
The combined solution from Exterro and FTI Technology will provide the software, processes, services and personnel to simplify e-discovery and more quickly get to the facts of the case. Clients can leverage the expert services of FTI Technology to manage discrete steps or even the entire e-discovery process as an outsourced managed service.
