Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) August 20, 2007
Orlando-based Wave Software, an innovator in the de-duplication, re-generation and export of native email files, and Encore Legal Solutions, an end-to-end provider of data forensics and collections, electronic discovery, Web hosting and related litigation support services, announced today they have formed a strategic partnership to provide faster, more cost-effective processing of e-mail files for electronic discovery and regulatory response. Encore and Wave Software assist law firms and corporate law departments in expediting each and every phase of the discovery process.
The results of a recent survey by Contoural, Inc. and Osterman Research indicated a significant gap between enterprise IT and legal departments, and that companies are largely unprepared to respond to litigation. More than 69 percent of the survey's respondents were not litigation ready. Only 6 percent claimed they could immediately and confidently handle e-discovery requests. More than half thought they were at risk of not being able to enforce a litigation hold.
Encore Legal Solutions offers consulting and related services to strategically move clients into a position of litigation readiness. Encore specializes in every phase of the litigation lifecycle including project scoping, preservation of data, data collections, processing, hosting, review, production, and presentation. Their consultants, certified trainers, and technical staff help clients select and deploy the litigation support applications that best meet their requirements. To this end, they have established a formal partnership with leading litigation support companies and software providers including Wave Software.
Encore Legal Solutions will use Wave Software's Trident Pro to provide discovery data to clients to assist them with litigation readiness and quickly handle e-discovery requests. Trident Pro is industry-leading software for processing of common e-mail file types (PST or NSF files) to comply with discovery requests and regulatory filing requirements. Encore Legal Solutions will provide clients with the security, reporting and internal chain-of-custody logs that come with Trident Pro.
"Wave Software's partnership with Encore Legal Solutions will further enable law firms and corporate law departments to seamlessly obtain world-class e-discovery processing capabilities. Both of our companies are dedicated to providing premiere products and services that allow customers to process and review data with greater efficiency and performance," states Robert Childress, president of Wave Software.
Gregory J. Mazares, president and CEO of Encore Legal Solutions, adds: "Partnering with Wave Software is a natural fit for Encore Legal Solutions. As our clients' needs continue to expand, we are committed to providing them with the most efficient and effective tools available to satisfy their e-discovery and litigation support needs. Trident Pro is an outstanding software solution."
