A&M enhances eDiscovery and eDisclosure offerings to help clients navigate complex cross-border disputes and investigations.
New York – Leading global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) has strengthened its global eDiscovery and eDisclosure capabilities with the addition of Relativity’s cloud-based eDiscovery solution, RelativityOne, in the U.S. and U.K. With RelativityOne, A&M can better protect its data by storing it in a single, secure SaaS platform that spans the full breadth of eDiscovery – from legal hold all the way through to production. This enhancement reflects A&M’s commitment to pairing its world-class consulting and service expertise with the latest, best-in-class tools to meet ever-evolving market and client demands.
A&M’s U.S. and U.K. RelativityOne rollout follows on similar deployments in Brazil, Hong Kong, India and the UAE and supplements the firm’s ubiquitous eDiscovery software in these jurisdictions. The addition of RelativityOne augments the firm’s long-established, in-country data hosting and technology support centers spanning the Americas (U.S., Cayman Islands, Brazil); EMEA (UK, Germany, Greece, Switzerland, Spain); UAE; and Asia-Pacific (APAC) (Hong Kong, mainland China, Singapore, India).
With the secure and powerful RelativityOne product, A&M will be able to further leverage its eDiscovery expertise to provide more value and better results for its clients. RelativityOne holds ISO 27001, SOC-2 Type II, HIPAA, and FedRAMP certifications, and is secure from the ground up with proactive threat intelligence and 24/7 monitoring. Additionally, moving to the cloud gives A&M the added scalability needed in today’s data-centric society and allows them to build expertise and IP on top of one connected, global solution. RelativityOne also gives A&M users the flexibility to pick and choose solutions from the Relativity App Hub that best suit their unique workflows across different stages of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model —and solve data challenges outside of eDiscovery.
“As investigations and litigation become increasingly multi-jurisdictional in nature, cases require innovative, flexible and defensible solutions,” said Phil Beckett, Managing Director and global leader of A&M’s Forensic Technology services. “The continued global growth of our eDiscovery offering bolsters our firm’s forensic technology capabilities and positions us to provide critical expert electronic discovery and disclosure support in large, complex matters.”
Jeffrey Teso, a Managing Director with A&M’s Disputes and Investigations practice, adds, “The adoption of RelativityOne across our global delivery centers enables us to offer clients a consistent, scalable solution for addressing increasing data volume challenges and evolving data source complexities. Joining RelativityOne with our existing capabilities provides our clients access to the latest technology solutions alongside the unmatched expertise of our experienced support professionals.”
“A&M has been a dedicated Relativity partner for more than a decade and is now providing its global customer-base with the most secure and flexible eDiscovery SaaS platform on the market. This transition to the cloud in the U.S. and the U.K. reinforces A&M’s commitment to evolving its capabilities to meet industry demand,” said James Zinn, Director of Commercial Partnerships at Relativity. “We look forward to seeing the great work that A&M will continue to do for its customers’ eDiscovery and e-disclosure matters as it takes advantage of everything RelativityOne has to offer.”
