Kroll Ontrack continues to expand U.S. network of document review facilities with opening of review center in New York

New local document review center designed to dramatically reduce the total cost of discovery with expert staff, cutting-edge review protocols, and innovative technology

Minneapolis, MN – May 2, 2011 Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of information management, data recovery and legal technologies products and services, today announced the launch of its document review facility in New York City. Conveniently located in Midtown near Grand Central Station, the facility is in close proximity to many New York law firms, offering attorneys quick and easy access from their offices. As the latest addition to the Kroll Ontrack network of document review facilities throughout the United States, the New York review center aims to help both law firms and corporations dramatically reduce document review costs by employing reviewers and review managers specifically trained in the Ontrack® Inview™ 7.0 review tool, with its market-leading user experience and the breakthrough technology of Intelligent Review: Automated Workflow, Intelligent Prioritization and Intelligent Categorization.

In addition to New York-based document review staff and innovative tools and processes, clients will benefit from the full suite of Kroll Ontrack integrated services across the entire Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), reducing time and saving money by simplifying transitions and hand-offs from the processing, document review and production phases of discovery. The opening of the New York facility is another example of the commitment Kroll Ontrack has made to continually updating its global, end-to-end discovery services, technology and facilities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the legal discovery process.

"We understand that direct interaction with document review teams may be vital in managing a successful matter. Hearing the value in local access to our managed review services, Kroll Ontrack responded with a state-of-the-art facility and expert management team in the New York area," said Dan Marrone, director of document review services, Kroll Ontrack. "Clients can rest assured that their review is running smoothly and they are informed every step of the way. In addition, clients will benefit from review managers applying over 10 years of history into making the award-winning Ontrack Inview review tool, which is specifically designed to reduce the burden and expense of legal discovery – no matter the project size or level of complexity. Our review teams have worked on thousands of matters, and we are putting that experience to work for our clients across the globe and locally in New York."

Leveraging Intelligent Review Technology (IRT) within industry leading Ontrack Inview, which integrates human input with smart technology, clients can achieve a 50 percent plus cost savings on document reviews. In addition, the benefits to utilizing Kroll Ontrack for local Document Review Services include:

In addition, review teams can also take advantage of other Kroll Ontrack tools such as Ontrack® Advanceview™ early case assessment technology to significantly reduce data sets prior to processing and review.


  • Best-in-Class Service and Processes - Kroll Ontrack dedicated Professional Services and Document Review Management teams leverage 15 years of corporate experience handling ESI for litigation and/or regulation to deliver proven, repeatable processes and avoid costly errors. Furthermore, onsite Kroll Ontrack Document Review Managers achieve seamless document review execution for law firms and in-house counsel by helping them manage project timelines, budget constraints and production obligations.
