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 MLAs network of U.S. offices, said Bruce Markowitz, MLAs 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. 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.
MLA faces the daily challenge of providing specialized discovery services across its offices with expedient, consistent and accurate results while simultaneously providing a predictable budget for those services, said Iris Vice President of Managed Services, Scott Berger. 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. 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.
