Plunkett Cooney, P.C. Licenses Relativity Firm-wide

Michigan-based firm chooses Relativity for fully integrated processing and comprehensive text analytics

kCura, developers of the e-discovery software Relativity, today announced that Plunkett Cooney, P.C. has licensed Relativity for in-house use, with hosting and infrastructure provided by Iris Data Services. Plunkett Cooney has approximately 150 attorneys in 11 offices throughout the Great Lakes region.

As a fully featured e-discovery platform, Relativity allows users to create and automate custom workflows, take advantage of a complete set of text analytics capabilities including computer-assisted review, and make use of fully integrated processing capabilities—so case teams can ingest data and begin review quickly without leaving the system.

“Relativity Processing will speed up our time from collection to review, as we’re able to process the loose electronic files our clients give us directly into the system to start review,” said Beth Niepokuj, litigation support manager at Plunkett Cooney. “After processing, Relativity Analytics features like email threading will add context to the review process. Our attorneys can understand what they have much more quickly.”

“We’re thrilled to be Plunkett Cooney’s managed services provider,” said Major Baisden, president of Iris Data Services. “They are known by their clients as a determined, distinctive, and fearless law firm. We appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate these same values."

“We’re excited that Plunkett Cooney has chosen Relativity to more efficiently respond to e-discovery challenges,” said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. “We look forward to helping them be successful with the platform.”
