Iris Data Services Providing Managed eDiscovery Solutions to International Law Firm

By Laura Stotler

A new managed services agreement has been announced by Iris Data Services and an international law firm. Iris will provide managed discovery services to McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP (MLA) through the agreement.

The managed service provider (MSP) offers the Iris Discovery Management program and will provide services including managed electronic discovery and hosted document review to the law firm. The program also includes discovery consulting, eDiscovery processing, data analytics and data hosting through the kCura Relativity platform.

According to Iris, the law firm was facing a daily challenge with having to provide specialized discovery services across its many offices. The firm was expected to provide consistent and accurate results for clients while also offering a predictable budget for the services.

"Iris Discovery Management will provide the firm with a scalable and accurate, on-demand discovery process that uniquely leverages enhanced industry-standard tools with expert personnel and custom, client-driven management systems at a flat, monthly rate," said Scott Berger, vice president of managed services at Iris. "Iris Discovery Management will allow MLA to spend less time managing vendors and litigation technologies and more time doing what they do best, practicing law."

"As part of our comprehensive MLA Advantage legal project management program, the firm realized we needed to find a managed services provider with significant capacity, experience and industry expertise that can provide quality discovery services to MLA's network of U.S. offices," said Bruce Markowitz, MLA's director of practice technology. "Iris has developed a portfolio of reliable and scalable discovery services, integrating best of breed litigation support tools such as Nuix and Relativity."

"The strength of what Iris has done lies in the process-driven management systems they have established around this workflow and the proprietary enhancements they have made to these tools," he added. "Having access to their management tools, such as eBoard project tracking, personnel, and developers on an on-demand basis ensures that we will be able to scale to meet short term needs while capitalizing on future innovations in process and technology."
