doeLegal, a comprehensive online legal services solutions provider, has adopted Equivio's technology to provide a new service for near-duplicate documents and email threads.

doeLegal, a comprehensive online legal services solutions provider, announced today that it is offering a new service for near-duplicate documents and email threads. The new service is based on technology from Equivio. doeLegal is providing the service as part of its electronic discovery and legal support capabilities.

Tom Russo, President, doeLegal: "To reduce eDiscovery costs, the place to start is the review process. And, if you want to reduce review costs, the place to start is near-duplicates. Near-duplicates are probably the largest addressable cost in the review phase. In partnering with Equivio, we are pleased to bring our customers the market-leading technology solution for this mission-critical problem."

The grouping of near-duplicates allows legal counsel to discover the changes made to key corporate communications by central players within seconds. This helps litigators find the crucial information they need to win. Equivio also cuts costs. Near-duplicates represent 20 to 50% of typical collections. By deploying this tool, reviewers can cut review time by weeding out extraneous materials or honing in on relevant documents central to their case.

Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio: "Litigators are usually very surprised by the number of near-duplicates in their data sets. Near-duplicates are a classic chicken-and-the-egg phenomenon. In the absence of the solution, people are often unaware that they have a problem at all. We are proud to be working with innovative service providers like doeLegal who are helping transform this well camouflaged problem into a seamless solution."
