Milberg extends e-discovery capabilities
Milberg, a law firm with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit and Tampa, has chosen a Web-based workflow and notification system to manage its legal hold and risk assessment processes in future cases.
Milberg is deploying kCura’s Method software to extend its in-house e-discovery software capabilities. Method will be used in combination with kCura’s Relativity, which provides review, analysis and production functionality.
Ariana Tadler, a member of the executive committee at Milberg, says, “The initiation of an effective legal hold is a crucial first step in modern litigation. Method is a tool that will help us address this area through the automation and auditing of sound practices.”
According to kCura, Milberg will use Method to organize legal holds into efficient, repeatable processes. Its customizable workflows allow users to scale the application to fit the needs of the firm’s matters, kCura reports, while maintaining defensibility through detailed reporting tools that produce audit trails of custodian communications. The system can also be used to take a proactive approach to ligation by facilitating data mapping and information gathering.
