Mishcon de Reya has announced the launch of its own in-house e-Discovery facility, 'Mishcon Discover', making it the first law firm in the UK to provide e-discovery services in partnership with a technology provider. The initiative is being developed by e-disclosure manager Richard Legge alongside disputes Managing Associate Edward Carder, and the business has been established under a new limited liability partnership. The firm is offering clients the option of having all of their e-Discovery activity managed by the lawyers working on their matters - with the support of the firm's in-house e-Discovery experts.
Working with e-discovery provider, Unified, and software developer, kCura, Mishcon Discover will utilise Relativity – the market leading document review platform used by law firms, government agencies and corporations to tackle legal projects ranging from litigation to internal investigations and data remediation. This will enable Mishcon de Reya to provide its clients with highly efficient e-Discovery services, ensuring the firm's lawyers can harness the benefits associated with the latest analytics and predictive coding technologies. Mishcon Discover will be competitively priced and is expected to save clients costs on large and complex litigation cases through the use of predictive coding.
Richard Legge commented: "Mishcon de Reya spotted an inefficiency in the way law firms manage e-Discovery and, true to form, has decided to tread new ground in order to address this. Not only will the process of e-Discovery now be more efficient, we will also be able to identify and deliver technical solutions through a closer collaboration with the legal teams."
Ed Carder added: "The early adoption of e-Discovery is representative of the way Mishcon de Reya embraces cutting edge technology to enhance the service it provides to its clients. We're excited to see how progressive initiatives like this will advance our business."
