Kansas City, Missouri (PRWEB) August 19, 2014
Iris Data Services, the leader in eDiscovery managed services, announced today that Plunkett Cooney, one of the largest and widest-ranging law firms in Michigan, has signed a multiyear agreement to partner with Iris for eDiscovery managed services. Iris will provide kCura’s eDiscovery platform Relativity on an Infrastructure as a Service basis, giving Plunkett Cooney the ability to scale the platform as needed.
“Iris has a proven record of satisfaction and maturity for eDiscovery managed services, “said Beth Niepokuj, Litigation Support Manager at Plunkett Cooney. “The strong recommendations from our peer firms mixed with Iris’ experience in managed services made the decision easy for us. We are already seeing benefits in terms of training support and ease of working with Iris at all levels within our firm.”
“We’re thrilled to be Plunkett Cooney’s managed services provider,” said Major Baisden, President of Iris Data Services. “They are known by their clients as a determined, distinctive and fearless law firm. We appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate these same values throughout our partnership.”
Plunkett Cooney moved to kCura’s Relativity because their previous review solutions were not meeting the needs of their case teams. The firm’s litigation support team looked for a managed services partner offering infrastructure support and security, as well as Relativity expertise.
