USDOJ Adopts Equivio Technology for Near-Duplicate Detection and Email Thread Analysis

ROCKVILLE, MD and CHANTILLY, VA--(Marketwire - January 16, 2008) - Equivio, the provider of near-duplicate detection technology, and TechLaw Solutions today announced that the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA), a component of the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ), has adopted Equivio's technology for grouping of near-duplicate documents and reconstructing email threads.

The Equivio products are being deployed in EOUSA's Litigation Technology Service Center (LTSC), to provide electronic discovery services for all U.S. Attorneys' Offices.

Equivio's technology assists the attorney's focus on the data they need to win cases. The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allow attorneys to skip redundant data, while focusing exclusively on the unique information in each document. This will reduce risk, ensuring key data is not missed and that similar documents are treated consistently.

Equivio also enhances review productivity, helping litigators meet tight deadlines. Proven in hundreds of cases, the Equivio tool can be relied on to reduce review effort by over 20%.

Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio, said, "We are delighted that EOUSA has chosen Equivio as the best-of-breed technology for near-duping and email threading."

The Equivio products were purchased through TechLaw Solutions, a pioneer in litigation support and information management. TechLaw Solutions manages a GSA contract for government purchase of Equivio software and Equivio-based services.
