August 23, 2010

LAS VEGAS, Nev (August 23, 2010) – Special Counsel, the leading provider of legal staffing services, and Fios, Inc., a leading provider of electronic discovery services, are today announcing deeper integration of their partnership, which aims to enable corporations and law firms to inject better cost control and predictability into the e-discovery process. The two firms are setting a new standard in predictable e-discovery process through Special Counsel’s introduction of SightManager and hosted review through Relativity® Powered by Fios.

The two companies are also offering a new all-inclusive pricing package through December 31, 2010, which consists of best-in-class evidence processing by Fios; advanced review platforms, including Relativity Powered by Fios; experienced, high quality Special Counsel document reviewers; expert litigation and project management services; customizable evidence production; and a centralized point of contact from processing through production—all at predictable rates.

“It’s no secret that law firms and corporations want to better predict and control their e-discovery costs, while not sacrificing quality or service. At Special Counsel and Fios, we get that,” said Jonathan Leitner, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Fios, Inc. He continued, “ILTA is an excellent showcase for legal teams to learn about our new price offering, the new SightManager technology and Relativity Powered by Fios. Our two companies are in booth #429.”

The ILTA conference marks the first time that SightManager is available to the public for demonstration and trial use. This innovative technology provides legal document review managers with real-time visibility into the performance, efficiency and productivity of the work product of every person working on a document review. This “over-the-shoulder” supervision is not bound by geography and offers an unparalleled level of oversight and collaboration.

“Technology has become such an integral part of the legal profession.” said Chris Gallagher, senior vice president of Special Counsel. He continued, “Relativity Powered by Fios truly delivers an unrivaled Relativity® experience, meeting legal teams’ need to rapidly assess and review evidence, to defensibly reduce data volumes and to control review costs – all in an easy-to-use, hosted review platform. ILTA attendees will see how, sitting at their own desks, using SightManager, they can oversee a team of attorneys reviewing with Relativity Powered by Fios. It’s a powerful way to drive review efficiency.”

Additionally, Laney Altamar, a regional sales vice president with Special Counsel, will be part of a panel presenting Monday, August 23, at 2:30 PDT on, “Navigating the Complexities of Electronic Document Review.” This session will address best practices for blending people, process and technology to ease the growing demands of electronic discovery and the document review process.
