Litera Increases Australian Presence With Ethan Group Partnership

MCLEANSVILLE, NC--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2013) - Law Firms and corporations in the Asia Pacific Region can expect local representation and support of Litera's 14 legal-focused software products, thanks to a new partnership announced today. Litera, leading developer of content and risk management software for law firms and corporations worldwide, today announced a new relationship with Ethan Group, an Australian technology service provider with 10 offices throughout the Asia Pacific region. Ethan Group is known for its technology consulting and systems integration services for medium-sized business, large multinationals and government organizations.

"We often hear from clients that they find Litera's support to be exceptional, but there is nothing like working with an organization that has detailed knowledge of the client's technology strategy, infrastructure and culture to perfectly align our solutions with the business need," says Deepak Massand, CEO of Litera. "We are thrilled to be working with such a high-quality, well-respected organization that focuses on delivering value to our mutual clients."

Ethan Group will represent and provide first line support for the entire Litera product stack for content creation, collaboration and control. Document creation products supported include Innova for document templates and numbering, Content Hub for Word and PowerPoint document assembly and CitationWare for Table of Authorities. Included in the collaboration category are the company's flagship Change-Pro products for Word, Excel, PPT, PDF comparisons; Sync for file sharing, IDS for document simultaneous co-authoring & collaboration and Galaxy for matter/project collaboration. Finally, Litera's entire security suite will be supported, including Metadact for the desktop, Metadact-e for server-based metadata removal from any documents sent from desktop or mobile devices, Litera Secure File Transfer and IRM (Intelligent Rights Management) for end-to-end content control.

Ethan Legal's key value proposition is simple -- we know Legal IT -- and therefore adding the superior product range of products from Litera makes perfect sense to John Duckett, who leads the team. "We are happy to represent Litera's best-in-class products for content and risk management," says Duckett. "Whether it be law firms, corporate counsel, or any other group with professional or regulated documents, we believe the Litera product line measurably improves efficiency, facilitates collaboration and dramatically reduces risk for our clients."

Ethan Legal are major sponsors at the upcoming LawTech (Sep 12-13) and Janders Dean (Sep 19-20) Conferences where it will be representing Litera's product range, as well promoting Litera directly to their significant legal client base (which includes the top 50 Australian legal firms).
