San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 25, 2008
Black Letter Discovery, Inc. (“BLD”), a leading provider of e-discovery solutions, announced today that it is the first e-discovery services vendor to join the General Counsel Roundtable’s (“GCR”) Vendor Preferred Pricing Program. GCR members can benefit from BLD’s expertise in working with clients on litigation preparedness and in developing, implementing and staffing complex document review projects. With an estimated 70% or more of e-discovery costs attributed to attorney review of documents, BLD helps clients significantly reduce e-discovery spend.
“We have identified e-discovery as one of the top categories of legal spend where our members can achieve significant savings,” said Steven Williams, Managing Director, GCR. “By including Black Letter Discovery in our Vendor Preferred Pricing Program, members can take advantage of BLD’s e-discovery expertise at rates discounted specifically for GCR members.”
“As a former general counsel and GCR member, I know first hand the value of GCR’s thought leadership in the areas of legal department management and service delivery. We’re excited to participate in this program which GCR recently launched,” said Anne Jordan, President of BLD, “and to be able to work with GCR members to find cost-effective solutions to the e-discovery challenges they face.”
Consistent with its role as an objective source of information for its members, the GCR does not endorse specific vendors and will continue its policy of not accepting any remuneration from a vendor. All program discounts will go directly to GCR members. Over time, GCR plans to expand the program to include qualified vendors used by GCR member legal departments.
GCR members who have questions about this new program are encouraged to contact the GCR. Member questions regarding the specific discounts related to Black Letter Discovery should be addressed to Anne Jordan at 800-210-7710.
