Buchalter Nemer Installs E-Discovery Review Platform, Relativity, Enterprise Wide
Full-Service Business Law Firm Brings Relativity In House, Purchases From Evolve Discovery
SAN FRANCISCO, CA and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) - Evolve Discovery, a Relativity Premium Hosting Partner and Certified Reseller, announced today that they have sold Relativity, kCura's e-discovery review platform, to Buchalter Nemer. The full-service business law firm selected Relativity for its ease of use, powerful production tools, and customizable workflow capabilities.
"We realize how important it is to have best-of-breed technology in this industry, and Relativity keeps us ahead of the curve," said Karen LaFleur, Director of Information Technology and Practice Support at Buchalter Nemer. "Bringing the review platform in house places us on the forefront of litigation support."
Relativity's streamlined user interface, powerful search capabilities, and data visualization features contribute to the platform's ease of use. In as little as twenty minutes of training, Buchalter Nemer's attorneys can quickly and easily navigate from document to document making review decisions. Additionally, Relativity's integrated production tools give users flexible options for running, managing, and tracking productions. Case administrators can monitor and audit customized workflows for improved case management and faster review.
"Some of our attorneys were wary of working in a database, but Relativity makes it easy," said LaFleur. "With complex litigations, we normally have issues or problems at production time. Because of the customized workflows we've created in Relativity, the process is seamless. When we receive the inevitable request to produce documents at 5 p.m. on a Friday afternoon, there are no last-minute surprises."
"I am pleased that kCura has provided us the opportunity to build upon our partnership with Buchalter Nemer, one of our best clients," said Shamir Colloff, Chief Technology Officer of Evolve Discovery. "This partnership will bring cutting-edge litigation technology in house and provide Buchalter flexibility to handle significantly larger matters with ease."

"Evolve Discovery's consulting background and administrative expertise will enhance Buchalter Nemer's experience with Relativity," said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. "We're thrilled that the law firm has brought Relativity in house, and we look forward to continuing to support Evolve Discovery as they keep delivering outstanding customer service to their clients."
