Legal solutions company solidifies commitment to cloud-based e-discovery technology by reaching an elite-level partnership.

April 8, 2020


Jacksonville, FL and Chicago (April 8, 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 announced with Relativity that it has become the first-ever RelativityOne Certified Gold Partner and is currently the only Relativity partner holding this status. Special Counsel represents a wide range of comprehensive consulting services for law firms and corporations that need capabilities in the U.S., U.K., China and Australia.

The RelativityOne Certified Gold Level is part of the Relativity Partner Program and was put in place to recognize organizations that have reached the highest bar for experience, customer satisfaction, staff training and certifications. Gold partners are considered proven innovators, with at least two custom applications available in the Relativity App Hub. A Gold Certified Partner must have an extensive and consistent track record of client results with RelativityOne.

As a Relativity partner since 2008, Special Counsel has vast experience with the organization. To further that commitment, they made a strategic decision to invest early in an expanded partnership, with the introduction of RelativityOne in 2018. From there, the partnership has flourished resulting in expanded use, many customer successes and two custom applications, DiscoverMobile and Theia.

“We are pleased to be recognized as a leader in the e-discovery technology space by Relativity,” said Chris Gallagher, President of U.S. Professional Solutions at Special Counsel and its parent company, The Adecco Group. “Our team has worked hard to be a frontrunner when it comes to innovation. This has been demonstrated by our early commitment to Relativity’s first cloud-based, SaaS offering RelativityOne, as well as our ongoing efforts to ensure client success by providing custom applications and an ever-growing team of certified experts.”

“For more than a decade, Special Counsel has proven to be a highly dedicated and innovative partner and I’m thrilled that they are the first RelativityOne Certified Gold Partner,” said Mike Gamson, CEO at Relativity. “As they continue to be a leader within the Relativity Community, I look forward to seeing Special Counsel deliver even more innovation with RelativityOne to meet their clients’ ever-evolving e-discovery data challenges.”
