Morgan Lewis Selects Recommind’s Axcelerate eDiscovery™
Next-generation platform allows firm to offer its clients early case assessment, expedited review and analysis for alternate pricing—a first in the AmLaw 100
SAN FRANCISCO, December 8, 2009: Recommind, the leader in search-powered Information Risk Management (IRM) software, and Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP today announced that the firm has selected Recommind’s Axcelerate eDiscovery™ as the foundation for its eDiscovery infrastructure. Standardizing on this powerful technology provides the firm with the most advanced eDiscovery review, coding, and analytics capabilities available. Morgan Lewis will use its new platform to become the first AmLaw 100 firm to offer clients full eDiscovery services on an alternate pricing basis.
“Morgan Lewis selected Recommind after a thorough evaluation of numerous eDiscovery solutions. We knew we wanted to find the most efficient way to offer our clients comprehensive functionality—as opposed to separate tools for search, categorization, processing, culling, analysis, review, and production,” said Stephanie “Tess” Blair, litigation partner and leader of the eData Practice at Morgan Lewis. “Given our long-standing commitment to fee arrangements that meet our client’s needs, we are committed to offering our clients alternate pricing for these unparalleled eDiscovery services.”
Using its unique concept search and Predictive Coding™ technology, Axcelerate eDiscovery automatically assesses document responsiveness, privilege, and issue relation before the review process begins. This reduces the amount of time required to prioritize ESI (electronically stored information) and conduct document review and analysis, while simultaneously increasing review accuracy and consistency. The system also automatically identifies key documents, people, phrases, and concepts of interest, giving Morgan Lewis attorneys visibility into document collection prior to review. As a result, Axcelerate eDiscovery improves the speed and accuracy of document review and reduces the overall cost of eDiscovery.
“Morgan Lewis has a long track record of excellence in client service and a commitment to investing in core services to advance their capabilities on behalf of their clients,” said Robert Tennant, CEO, Recommind. “To be proactive in today’s fast-paced litigation environment, leading firms such as Morgan Lewis realize that they must invest in unique technology to keep pace and be competitive. Axcelerate eDiscovery will enable this blue chip firm to continue that record of excellence, improving the firm’s processes while cutting costs for their clients at a number of different pain points.”
