San Francisco, Calif. — SFL Data, a leading electronic discovery solutions provider for corporations, government agencies and law firms, has partnered with Clearwell Systems to provide the client with efficient eDiscovery services. A case study detailing the challenge, solution and benefits is available here. Highlights of the case study are summarized below.

Challenge: Managing eDiscovery in-house requires hiring specialized employees to support peak litigation volume and retaining those employees even when litigation volume subsides. In addition, to host the data needed for in-house eDiscovery, an IT department must dedicate physical infrastructure isolated on its own network.

Solution: The client chose SFL Data’s Managed Services Solution leveraging Clearwell’s Enterprise-Class eDiscovery Software Platform. The client selected SFL Data to deliver end-to-end litigation support services based on its consultative, metrics-driven approach. The client also recognized Clearwell as the
leader in early case assessment (ECA) and wanted to leverage those ECA capabilities to inform case strategy and decisions.

Benefit: The client is realizing significant savings in eDiscovery costs. By using a third party, the client is able to easily keep its litigation data isolated and mitigate risk. SFL Data’s Managed Services Solution also allows the client to avoid the internal costs of maintenance and support of eDiscovery cases and data, including the burden on internal IT By using Clearwell’s Enterprise-Class eDiscovery Software Platform, the client has gained the ability to perform case assessments much earlier in the eDiscovery process. And as SFL Data has extensive experience with Clearwell, the client benefits from an established process designed to build efficiency and defensibility across the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) phases in which Clearwell is used.
