May 11, 2020


Jacksonville, FL (May 11, 2020) Special Counsel, the nation’s leading provider of end-to-end legal solutions, and part of the Adecco Group’s U.S. Professional Recruitment and Solutions unit, , today launched a new RelativityOne app, Theia, which streamlines image identification during the managed review process.

Theia leverages the power of Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence platform, Cognitive Services, and is fully integrated into RelativityOne, the leading Software-as-a-Service eDiscovery platform. The app analyzes images hosted in RelativityOne and returns details regarding the contents of the images while providing a certainty rating to allow users to cull down images and further reduce the time needed to review. Theia’s capabilities enable users to more efficiently and confidently locate the most relevant imagery for their managed review.

“Theia is a logical and future-forward step in our technology strategy and commitment to RelativityOne,” said Roger Birong, Senior Vice President, Information Technology at Special Counsel. “Our team often encounters the need to review thousands of images during the managed review process and it seemed natural to harness the power of Microsoft Azure and artificial intelligence to make that process faster and more accurate. We are pleased to offer this unique solution as a complementary value-add to our clients.”

“Theia demonstrates the power that comes from innovating with cloud-native technologies on top of RelativityOne and Microsoft Azure. It will be a gamechanger for users in RelativityOne,” said Drew Deitch, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Relativity. “Special Counsel has been an innovative provider in the Relativity community for years, and forward-thinking solutions like Theia reinforce that reputation.”

Special Counsel has a longstanding partnership with Relativity and was recently recognized as the first ever RelativityOne Certified Gold Partner. For more information about Special Council or to learn about their custom legal solutions, visit specialcounsel.com.
