Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP Licenses Relativity for Collection through Production
Am Law firm’s subsidiary practice, Tritura, selects comprehensive e-discovery platform to perform smarter, targeted collections alongside processing, review, analytics, and production capabilities
kCura, makers of the e-discovery software Relativity, today announced that Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP has purchased a license of Relativity. The firm’s technology services subsidiary, Tritura, helps every practice group at Drinker Biddle better serve their clients by striving to maximize the value of their data—providing business insight and enabling better strategy before, during, and after litigation.
With Relativity, Drinker Biddle will give their teams more flexibility in gathering and analyzing data for litigation, regulatory investigations, and information governance matters. Relativity Collection offers flexible options including remote and onsite capabilities, as well as both forensic and targeted collections. A feature called scout allows users to quickly and remotely analyze file names and system metadata on a custodian’s computer to get a complete picture of what’s available for collection. Case teams can then make informed, defensible decisions on what data they need before initiating the collection.
“The ability to log into Relativity from anywhere in the world, follow some simple clicks, and collect data from a custodian’s computer solves a very thorny problem for us,” said Bennett B. Borden, executive managing director of Tritura and chair of Drinker Biddle’s information governance group. “The visibility you gain through scout helps ensure we’re not missing anything important, and helps us answer clients’ questions by comprehensively learning about the data related to their case.”
“At the same time, the options for running the collection solve the scheduling challenges inherent to getting data from a busy custodian’s computer—we can do it remotely ourselves, without disrupting the custodian’s workday,” said Borden. “It’s amazing how much time you can spend trying to schedule time for multiple stakeholders to perform a simple collection, and Relativity nimbly resolves that problem.”
Beyond Collection, the team will use Relativity’s fully integrated processing capabilities and complete set of text analytics features, including computer-assisted review, to streamline their e-discovery process.
“We strive to provide the very best legal technology offering we can,” said Borden. “Relativity is reliable, it’s easy to use, and it meets our most immediate needs, so it will help us keep that promise to our clients.”
“We’re excited to see a forward-thinking firm like Drinker Biddle succeeding with Relativity Collection right out of the gate,” said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. “We look forward to working with them as they use Relativity to help deliver exceptional service to their clients.”
