Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, LLP Installs Relativity Firm-Wide
Leading business law firm brings kCura’s e-discovery platform in-house, purchased from DiscoverReady
kCura, developers of the e-discovery platform Relativity, recently announced that Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, LLP has purchased a license of Relativity through Relativity Certified Reseller, DiscoverReady. Installed behind Womble Carlyle’s firewall, Relativity will be offered firm-wide through Womble Carlyle’s BullDox team, a group of trained attorneys and paralegals dedicated to e-discovery. DiscoverReady will also provide additional hosting as necessary.
Womble Carlyle chose Relativity for the following benefits:
• Relativity Assisted Review – Relativity’s computer-assisted review workflow can magnify the efforts of Womble Carlyle’s review teams by allowing them to train Relativity to make decisions based on their expertise.
• Relativity Applications – By building applications within the software, such as a chain of custody or media tracking system, Womble Carlyle can meet the project management needs of their case teams.
• Ease of Use – Womble Carlyle’s attorneys can be up and running in Relativity with minimal training, and can create new issue tags on the fly as they are identified.
“We were immediately able to use Relativity Analytics to speed up our review,” said Dave Mazza, Partner at Womble Carlyle. “On just our second case, Relativity’s text analytics features made it easier to get to the most important documents faster.”
“We are excited that Womble Carlyle selected Relativity to help them continue providing innovative and reliable solutions to their clients, taking advantage of key features like Assisted Review,” said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. “We look forward to building a lasting relationship with them.”
