Relativity Review Platform to Provide Encore Clients With Enhanced Functionality for Native Review

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - September 20, 2007) - Encore Legal Solutions, a leading national provider of electronic discovery and related services to law firms and corporate legal departments, today announced it has entered into a strategic relationship to offer its clients kCura Corporation's web-based review platform, Relativity. Encore clients can now use Relativity to review native documents and manage entire discovery projects.

Encore Legal Solutions is highly respected for providing support for all phases of electronic discovery. The company was ranked as a "Top 10 Market Leader" in the 2007 Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery Survey, and was also ranked Top 10 or better in six of the eight stages of electronic discovery: Identification, Preservation, Review, Analysis, Production and Presentation. This agreement provides Encore clients with the option to search, review and redact native documents, avoiding the expense and time of converting them to a standard format.

"Our clients frequently require collaboration, customized workflow and native review. We are pleased to be able to deploy Relativity to help address these needs," said Greg Mazares, Encore's President and CEO. "Relativity preserves native document formats without necessitating conversion to TIFF, PDF or HTML. Users may TIFF only the documents that need redacting, and apply redactions right in the viewer. The platform also facilitates fast searching, flexible security, streamlined workflow and reporting."

"Encore is one of the leading companies in electronic discovery, and we are proud to be working with their knowledgeable and experienced professionals," said Andrew Sieja, CEO of kCura. "They have a reputation for implementing the best processes for their clients and with increasing frequency that means flexible security, case management tools, and native review.
