HOUSTON, TX – September 30, 2008 – Trial Solutions, an emerging leader in providing law firms and the legal departments within the Global 5000 with a single source solution to provide all of the technology, services and consulting required to support the entire litigation case lifecycle has announced a partnership with American Discovery, a leading provider of legal process outsourcing (LPO) services to the nation’s top law firms and corporations, to provide litigation support and document review services through the Trial Solutions national reseller channel.
“With the increased complexity and cost of eDiscovery for both law firms and corporate legal departments, our goal is to add partners to the Litigation Support Ecosystem® that can provide leading edge technology and quality services in a timely manner for a competitive price,” states Charles Skamser, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Trial Solutions. “We believe that American Discovery can meet these high standards and therefore we are pleased to be able to announce this partnership,” continues Mr. Skamser.
Trial Solutions offers a comprehensive suite of litigation services and solutions for litigation professionals. Marketed as the Litigation Support Ecosystem® through a national reseller network, it includes litigation readiness consulting, meet and confer preparation consulting, worldwide Electronically Stored Information (ESI) and paper collection, computer forensics, Electronic Data Discovery (EDD) processing, worldwide local scanning and imaging, on-shore and off-shore coding, indexing and foreign language translation, an industry leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based Online Review Tool (ORT), outsourced attorney review, a national production network and trial support consulting and associated services.
“Managing legal expenses is an important objective for the world’s leading companies and the lawyers that represent them. However, achieving cost efficiency shouldn’t mean sacrificing quality,” states Jennifer Brewer, Executive Vice President at American Discovery. “American Discovery has assembled an industry-leading team to offer quality outsourced legal services at competitive rates, and we believe this partnership with Trial Solutions and its national reseller network will provide us with an excellent additional distribution channel for the U.S. market,” continues Ms. Brewer.
American Discovery’s unique hybrid approach combines first level review and quality control by its team in the Philippines with comprehensive project management and quality control programs in the U.S. to ensure the level of excellence its clients demand. Further, they chose to locate review operations in the Philippines because of the strength of English language skills of the Philippine legal community and the strong cultural affinity between the United States and the Philippines. Furthermore, the American Bar Association recently recognized Manila as the “next great outsourcing destination.” This business model provides a strategic advantage over other outsourced legal review options and places American Discovery in a unique position to assist clients in improving the process, efficiency, and quality of document review projects.
About American Discovery
American Discovery was founded in 2006 by a team of attorneys who sought an alternative to the expensive and cumbersome process of traditional discovery and document review. Through their own experiences as associates and partners at some of the nation’s top law firms including Skadden Arps, O’Melveny & Myers, and Paul Hastings, the American Discovery management team recognized a need for quality document review and litigation support in a secure, cost-efficient format. Today, the company provides legal process outsourcing services in the areas of litigation support, legal research, and diligence project management and document review. The company’s U.S. headquarters is in Los Angeles, and the Philippine operations are based in Manila, in the burgeoning financial district of Ortigas, which is within walking distance of The Philippine Stock Exchange.
