Falcon Discovery Partners With Zapproved to Add Legal Hold Pro™ to Falcon's Groundbreaking InsideOut™ Managed Service for Corporate Legal Departments

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - August 19, 2010) - Zapproved and Falcon Discovery, a niche legal service firm specializing in managing e-discovery in-house, today announced a new partnership combining Falcon Discovery's groundbreaking InsideOut™ managed service with Zapproved's Legal Hold Pro, the industry's first pure Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) system for managing the legal hold notification and compliance process.

Falcon's decision to add Legal Hold Pro as a key element to InsideOut™ extends the range of technologies that Falcon employs to create a repeatable, defensible and efficient in-house process for managing legal holds and compliance. This area of preservation has come under increasing scrutiny in 2010 as Federal and state court decisions now underscore the importance of tightly managing legal holds and compliance during preservation. The Falcon Discovery and Zapproved partnership provides clients with a solution that targets the heightened risks around preservation, and also significantly streamlines the in-house e-discovery process.

"This alliance dovetails with Falcon's mission to reduce our client's e-discovery risks and costs, by delivering the type of best-in-class technology and process re-engineering that is at the core of our InsideOut™ model," said Don McLaughlin, Falcon's president. "Falcon's clients rely on us to vet, test and deliver technology and process solutions that enable them to manage e-discovery work in-house more effectively, defensibly, and at far less cost than traditional outsourcing, and Legal Hold Pro delivers in spades."

"Working with Falcon Discovery made sense because they have distinguished themselves as an industry leading firm that is taking a unique approach to helping their clients better manage e-discovery in-house," said Monica Enand, President and CEO of Zapproved. "Legal Hold Pro completes the suite of technologies by being a ready-to-deploy solution for helping issue, track and ensure compliance with a defensible legal hold."

Legal Hold Pro lowers cost and reduces risk in litigation by tracking every action in detail while enabling best practices by making issuing and refreshing legal holds a simple process. When compared with labor-intensive manual processes, the system reduces errors and the time needed to manage and track compliance activities. Since Legal Hold Pro is fully web-hosted, there is no need to install, configure or maintain the software.

Falcon Discovery is transforming the way corporate legal departments and law firms manage discovery in the digital age. Falcon's InsideOut™ managed service can often respond to internal investigations or urgent discovery requests in a matter of hours -- not days or weeks -- and at a fraction of the cost of traditional outsourcing. Both in-house and outside counsel understand cases far more quickly, and Falcon's repeatable in-house processes, legal acumen and expertise managing advanced technology make every step more efficient and cost-effective. Falcon's InsideOut™ model originated with Falcon's work managing e-discovery in-house for a Fortune 500 legal department that was selected Corporate Legal Department of the Year in 2008, and Falcon is now delivering its managed service to other Fortune 1000 companies.
