New facility in the city adds capacity to host large multilingual reviews
LONDON – October 30, 2012–Consilio, a Symphony Technology Group (STG) company and global leader in eDisovery software and services, today announced the expansion of its London document review center by taking an additional floor at 4 St. Paul’s Churchyard. Complementing Consilio’s existing forensics, eDiscovery and data hosting capabilities, the new state-of-the-art facility can accommodate 75 reviewers and is ideally suited to support large-scale, multilingual document review projects involving highly sensitive data.
“Controlling costs while maintaining accuracy, security and privacy are the key success factors for our clients,” said Andy Macdonald, CEO of Consilio. “This new review center, combined with our project management team and proprietary review and analytics technology, will enable us to meet these goals. It also represents an important milestone in the build-out of our international footprint, particularly in light of the forthcoming UK civil justice reforms.”
April 2013 will bring a number of significant reforms to the management of litigation in England and Wales. Lord Justice Jackson, who presided over the civil justice reforms, noted that clients required both transparency and predictability with regard to time scales and costs. The reforms, amongst other things, will extend the obligation to exchange information to a wider range of cases, and it will give judges more wide-ranging powers to order disclosure appropriate to the case by replacing the present form of disclosure with a range of possible court orders. The reforms will also provide for costs management in the form of budgets to be agreed or ordered by the court.
Director of European Managed Review, Mathieu van Ravenstein, adds, “This expansion, coupled with our existing locations in Frankfurt, Zurich and Brussels, enhances our ability to support our clients with investigations and other complex litigation that put a premium on international and data protection expertise. By bringing the breadth of our technology and service capabilities together with our experienced, multilingual Project Managers, we are well-positioned to solve our clients’ most complex eDisclosure challenges.”
