Kroll Ontrack Launches Document Review Services in Germany to Help Law Firms and Companies Manage Legal Cases More Cost-Effectively
Kroll Ontrack , the leading global provider of ediscovery technologies and services to companies involved in litigation and investigations, today announced the launch of its new document review service in Germany.
The launch follows the introduction of Kroll Ontrack’s highly successful document review centre in London, which has handled a lot of document review projects for German clients since it opened in January 2015. Kroll Ontrack has been providing ediscovery services for over ten years in Germany. During a detailed market study involving law firms and corporate clients Kroll Ontrack has identified the same requirement for local, outsourced document review services in Germany. Through the use of intelligent software and professional review the newly introduced service helps companies and lawyers to reduce costs and keep to time requirements in their legal cases.
According to the study, the number of ediscovery projects that respondents in Germany had personally been involved with had increased every year over the past five years, despite ediscovery not being required under the German legal framework. Ediscovery services are nevertheless needed in Germany to support discovery in foreign litigation and investigations and also for internal investigations, pre-merger investigations and compliance audits, Kroll Ontrack launched its data centre in Germany in May 2014 in response to this growing demand for local ediscovery services and to address data privacy and security concerns. The document review service builds on this capability and enables law companies and their law firms to manage the document review process more cost-effectively by outsourcing it to Kroll Ontrack in Germany.
As well as managing document review from its offices in Böblingen, Germany, Kroll Ontrack’s experts can undertake projects at law firms’ or companies’ own premises as well as in partner offices in Frankfurt. Review teams can work with any third-party review platform as well as Kroll Ontrack’s own award-winning software, ediscovery.com Review.
Tim Phillips, Managing Director of Kroll Ontrack International Legal Technologies, said: “Legal process outsourcing is taking off quickly in Germany as more law firms and companies understand the benefits of engaging with a trusted partner to manage document reviews in internal investigations, litigation or responses to regulatory requests. Kroll Ontrack now offers in-depth, secure document review services in Germany. Law firms and companies can entrust their ediscovery and document review work to us at the location that suits them without having to send their data across borders”.
According to Helmut Sauro, Senior Consultant at Kroll Ontrack in Germany, “Companies and their law firms need more efficient ways to review large volumes of documents, and they have begun looking for trusted partners to address these needs. Our clients prefer to use a review center where they can physically oversee the review process when needed. Kroll Ontrack is able to handle document review projects regardless of the matter type, language, volume of documents or timeline. Our review lawyers are given highly focused training on how to get the most out of Kroll Ontrack’s review technology, thereby improving efficiency as well as reducing costs. By partnering with us, companies and their lawyers can benefit from a high quality document review service that delivers the required results at a fraction of the cost.”
The launch of the new document review centre in Germany is part of Kroll Ontrack’s strategy to provide access to its powerful technology and local expertise wherever and whenever clients need them. As well as opening its German data centre in Frankfurt in May 2014, Kroll Ontrack launched its French data centre in Paris earlier in 2015 along with its highly successful and fast-growing document review centre in London’s legal district in January 2015.
Kroll Ontrack now operates state-of-the-art data centres around the globe in the UK, United States, Japan, Germany and France and manages over 20 petabytes of active data storage on behalf of clients.
