Collaborative Spirit Earned Lawrence Exclusive eDiscovery Contract with Tech Giant Oracle
For Immediate Release October 27, 2010
San Francisco, Calif. — SFL Data, a leading electronic discovery solutions provider for corporations, government agencies and law firms, announced today that CEO Christian Lawrence has been nominated for the first annual Vistage Leadership Award in the Collaboration category. Under this nomination, Lawrence is specifically recognized for his success establishing SFL Data as Oracle Corporation’s (NASDAQ: ORCL) exclusive provider of managed eDiscovery services. Finalists and award winners will be announced on November 5, 2010 at the Vistage National Chief Executive Conference in San Diego, Calif.
“In this industry, hard deadlines are common, and the last thing litigators need is for the eDiscovery process to fall apart when service providers and attorneys don’t work in partnership. Managed eDiscovery services solves this issue, and I’m grateful that Vistage sees the value in this,” said Lawrence.
“I nominated Christian because of his knack for leadership in such a fast-paced industry. At Vistage, we hold workplace and business goals like collaboration, innovation and impact in high esteem – and Christian has displayed a multitude of positive characteristics over the past six years as SFL Data’s CEO,” said Julie Reinganum, San Francisco group chair for Vistage International, Inc.

Lawrence ensures that SFL Data’s consultative, metrics-driven approach to managed eDiscovery services helps law firm and corporate clients gain efficiency during the discovery process without significant internal investments. Under his leadership, SFL Data has enhanced infrastructure with a secure co-location, added new expertise to the team and lowered eDiscovery costs for clients by more than 30 percent.
