San Jose, Calif. (PRWEB) April 27, 2006
MetaLINCS, a leading provider of E-Discovery software, and Integreon, a leading litigation support outsourcing service provider, today announced a strategic partnership that will combine Integreon’s world-class legal and technical discovery support capabilities with MetaLINCS’ industry leading E-Discovery analysis and review technology. Integreon will give litigation support professionals more control over the E-Discovery process and dramatically reduce the time, expense and risk of document review during litigation.
“MetaLINCS’ conceptual analysis and review software allows us to offer our customers a level of E-Discovery process support unmatched in this industry. Our customers can use the software themselves over the Internet to rapidly review and analyze case content—or we can perform the initial document review for them, which they can check online at any time,” said Liam Brown, president and CEO of Integreon.
Under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR Act), agencies have the time and ability to challenge mergers prior to consummation—beyond the standard 30-day waiting period—when additional information is needed to perform sufficient antitrust review. However, as the nature of documents and information has changed, corporations are increasingly burdened in responding to these second requests, and agency staff faces greater challenges in reviewing and analyzing resulting documents.
“Integreon provides MetaLINCS with a valuable and experienced partner in the E-Discovery services market,” said Ramon Nunez, CEO of MetaLINCS. “Integreon immediately expands our reach to all its law firm and corporate legal customers who can benefit from our powerful analysis and review software.”
Integreon provides comprehensive discovery support solutions for litigation support professionals at law firms and corporate legal departments, e.g. paper document imaging and coding, electronic document processing, conversion and hosting, and document review. Integreon will offer the MetaLINCS E-Discovery application as a service to customers over the Internet, hosted out of its New York solution center, with document review out of Mumbai, India.
MetaLINCS’ visual analytics and highly scalable search engine make review and analysis accurate and efficient for any size project or review team by quickly displaying key information, such as relationships between people, events, time, documents and communication patterns. Review teams are able to quickly find and drill down on the most relevant case material during early case assessment, often within hours of processing content. Such early insight can inform initial strategic decision-making and drive more favorable case outcomes.
Integreon provides high-value, complex BPO solutions (also known as Knowledge Process Outsourcing, KPO or judgment-based BPO), specializing in document, content and knowledge services to the banking, legal, consulting, publishing and media domains. Integreon currently employs approximately 1,000 people in London, Los Angeles, New York and Mumbai. For more information, visit http://www.integreon.com.
