Fish & Richardson Installs Relativity Enterprise Wide

Leading Intellectual Property Law Firm Brings E-Discovery Platform in House, Purchased From Complete Discovery Source

NEW YORK, NY and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2011) - kCura, developers of the e-discovery review platform Relativity, today announced that Fish & Richardson has purchased a license of Relativity through Premium Hosting Partner and Certified Reseller, Complete Discovery Source (CDS). Relativity's flexible workflow capabilities and text analytics features help Fish work faster, while allowing them to scale Relativity to meet the needs of any case.

"We chose Relativity because it's so easy to use," said Alston Walker, Manager, Litigation Technology & Support Services at Fish. "We dropped 1.3 million native files into the platform, and our case teams were able to start searching right away. Relativity's ease of use and built-in text analytics features help us speed up the review process, saving our clients' time and money."

Fish chose Relativity for the following benefits:

  • Relativity Analytics
    • Using text analytics to find and cluster similar documents, Fish's review teams can make faster decisions and gain insight earlier on in a case.

  • Customizable Workflows
    • Fish's case managers can build and automate custom workflows to enforce best practices and ensure the quality and speed of the review process.

  • Security
    • Relativity's security makes it easy for Fish's case teams to collaborate with experts, clients, and outside counsel to more quickly build the facts of the case and gain an early strategic advantage in their matters.

"As a Relativity Certified Reseller, we were pleased to advise Fish on bringing Relativity in house," said Garrett Bendel, Vice President and General Manger of CDS. "We are excited to strengthen our relationship with the firm and to support them with our award-winning client services and our full suite of e-discovery offerings."
