"Digital WarRoom product sales are growing in response to the demand for in-house e-discovery for law firms and corporations."

Gallivan, Gallivan and O’Melia (GGO, LLC), e-discovery experts leading the move toward complete, accessible, affordable e-discovery solutions, today announced the company has formed an E-Discovery Products Group, to focus on providing Digital WarRoom software to law firms and corporations. Barry O’Melia, a founding partner of the 10-year old e-discovery consulting and services firm, will lead the organization. Under Barry’s direction, the product team will draw on the established GGO standards and best practices to educate and assist clients in making the transition to in-house e-discovery.

“Direct sales of Digital WarRoom WorkGroup™ and Digital WarRoom Pro™ have been the fastest-growing area of our business in 2011,” said Bill Gallivan, president of Gallivan Gallivan & O’Melia. “We are structuring the products group to provide highly attentive support to forward-thinking e-discovery attorneys, litigation support teams and IT managers who want to establish efficient e-discovery operations in-house.”

For the last several years Barry has been actively managing the Digital WarRoom sales effort, as well as providing e-discovery project management and consulting services to GGO clients. He often serves as a 30(B) (6) witness, testifying on behalf of client corporations on e-discovery practices and methodologies employed in ESI management. He is a frequent instructor and presenter on e-discovery topics in cooperation with ACEDS, ALSP, the Organization of Legal Professionals (OLP), and other industry organizations.

With more than 20 years in software development, technology integration and legal information services, Barry brings well-rounded business management experience to the challenges of a high-growth environment. Prior to joining GGO, Barry was program manager for an electronic legal services consulting and software firm. He was responsible for service and product delivery to several Fortune 100 companies in house and external legal counsel.

Gallivan Gallivan & O’Melia are the visionaries behind the mainstreaming of e-discovery in corporations and law firms. The Digital WarRoom product line includes DWR Pro™, an end-to-end Windows PC application for small/solo law and DWR WorkGroup™, providing e-discovery teams with complete ESI processing, document review and production in a single application, without traditional high-cost volume-based processing fees. GGO also offers full-service hosted e-discovery on the DWR Remote™ hosted platform designed for distributed and virtual team access to case data.

A case database created on any Digital WarRoom product can move seamlessly to any other Digital WarRoom product, with all attorney work product preserved.
