eTERA Europe Celebrates One Year, Reports Major Accomplishments

Leading Data and Technology Management Firm Reflects on the First Year of European Operations Including New Hires, Data Management Solutions and Client Engagements

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - April 05, 2016) - eTERA Consulting, an internationally recognized and award-winning leader in data and technology management, announced today the top accomplishments achieved in eTERA Europe's first year of operations.

Established in January of 2015, eTERA Europe was founded to meet the growing demand for eDiscovery services from global corporate and law firm clients. Recent regulation amendments for conducting cross-border data discovery have contributed to the dire need for data experts and assistance in Europe, particularly as U.S corporations continue to expand the amount of business conducted on a multinational basis.

In the first year of operations, eTERA Europe accomplished the following:

  • Selected by major corporate clients as their preferred European eDiscovery service provider
  • Managed complex client engagements in key markets including London, Paris and Zurich
  • Hired Rome-based Ryan Costello, Esq. as the Operations Manager of eTERA Europe
  • Expanded the database of multilingual contract attorneys, paralegals and data experts
  • Increased competencies in managing multijurisdictional, multilingual matters including government investigations and international arbitrations
  • Developed and deployed a unique mobile data processing solution

"The way the U.S and Europe manage the discovery of data in legal matters are worlds apart," said Gregory Bufithis, Esq., Managing Director of eTERA Europe. "Being the go-to resource to straighten out the complicated cross-border regulations is a huge value-add for multinational corporations and law firms. We are excited to continue to expand our footprint across Europe and secure projects in countries not yet tapped by eTERA Europe. Likewise, we plan to expand our output of innovative solutions to help corporations retain better control of their data across international borders."

In the first year of operations, eTERA established a unique mobile processing, hosting and review solution that allows data to remain in its company, province or country of origin, regardless of where the review takes place.

"We developed the solution in response to the continuing evolution of European privacy laws that restrict the transportation of data across international borders," said Andrew Retizos, Senior Consultant at eTERA Europe. "Multinational corporations are increasingly requesting for their data to be in their county and under their control. We were able to quickly respond with the development of this tool."

"Beyond the cross-border regulations and the need for mobile solutions, it is important to also consider language discrepancies between countries when dealing with legal matters in Europe," said Ryan Costello, Operations Manager at eTERA Europe. "During the review process, the documents must remain in their native language to maintain the document's efficacy and to guarantee the project is carried out in accordance with clients' requirements and expectations. Our expansive database of legal professionals in Europe, many of whom are fluent in a variety of the region's primary languages, makes this possible."
