WilmerHale Selects Recommind's Axcelerate eDiscovery

Firm Licenses Industry's Leading Automated eDiscovery Platform for Early Case Assessment, Predictive Coding™ and Production

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 1, 2010) - Recommind, the leader in search-powered Information Risk Management, announced today that Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP (WilmerHale) has licensed Recommind's Axcelerate eDiscovery™ software as the tool for its next-generation approach to eDiscovery. Axcelerate eDiscovery is Recommind's industry-leading solution for defensible automated document review.

WilmerHale selected Axcelerate eDiscovery after an industry-wide review to replace the firm's existing review tools, which required a linear approach to document review. In trials with Axcelerate eDiscovery, WilmerHale found that the product's Predictive Coding™ and SmartReview™ technology significantly improves and streamlines the overall document review process.

"We carefully considered multiple competing offerings and found that Recommind's responsiveness and Axcelerate eDiscovery's advanced features, especially Predictive Coding, were a key differentiator," said Steve Berrent, Director of Complex Case Services at WilmerHale. "Recommind's client focus and the technological sophistication of its solution we found to be a unique combination. Recommind has clearly built Axcelerate eDiscovery from the ground up to meet today's demanding requirements for cutting-edge document review."

In addition to Predictive Coding, Axcelerate eDiscovery's powerful SmartReview capabilities will enable WilmerHale to categorize documents for responsiveness, privilege and relation to certain issues quickly, at the onset of a review.

"As one of the world's premier law firms, WilmerHale is leading the charge to replace legacy linear review with faster, more accurate and cost effective approaches," said Recommind CEO Robert Tennant. "Axcelerate eDiscovery will enable WilmerHale to lead the competition in their ability to serve clients with document review needs."
