New document review facility to support Washington, D.C.'s expanding legal community

Kroll Ontrack to evolve document review, saving clients up to 50%

Minneapolis, MN – July 11, 2011 Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of information management, data recovery and legal technologies products and services, is expanding its efforts to change the document review process with the launch of a new, dedicated facility in Washington, D.C. Complementing recently opened centers in New York and Dallas, and building on its long history of document review in Minnesota, this new review facility furthers the company's commitment to streamlining e-discovery and saving clients up to 50 percent on document review by localizing its industry-leading technology and expertly trained people.

The Washington, D.C. document review facility offers law firms, corporations and governmental agencies a true extension to their teams and unmatched support across the entire Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM). As the worldwide leader in e-discovery and document review, Kroll Ontrack experts based in Washington, D.C. will help clients improve efficiency and effectiveness by leveraging Kroll Ontrack's newest version of its document review tool – Ontrack Inview 7.0 – with its market-leading user experience and the breakthrough Intelligent Review Technology comprised of Automated Workflow, Intelligent Prioritization and Intelligent Categorization features.

Washington, D.C. is an expanding legal community. According to the Hildebrandt Baker Robbins 2010 annual law firm IT Spending and Staffing Survey, 46 percent of all growth in the legal profession in 2010 was located in the Washington, D.C. metro area, in large part due to the rise of regulatory activity and the need for legal professionals skilled in these matters. As new lawyers enter the market place, the need for specialized discovery resources, like those offered by Kroll Ontrack, will be critical to their effectiveness.

"To successfully simplify the entire discovery process, reduce time expenditures and, ultimately, save money, we believe clients must adopt new review methods," said Dan Marrone, director of document review services, Kroll Ontrack. "Acknowledging traditional, linear review processes are now a thing of the past, Kroll Ontrack is committed to offering industry leading technology and unparalleled support to law firms and corporations in Washington, D.C. and beyond."

The Kroll Ontrack team of experts is specifically trained in the Ontrack Inview review tool and will leverage more than 10 years of research and product development that went into making the industry's most fully-featured review tool -- complete with Boolean and concept searching, topic grouping, advanced visualization analytics, email threading, near-duplicate detection, multi-lingual support and full reporting capabilities. Further, Kroll Ontrack review services experts are trained in the cutting-edge Intelligent Review Technology (IRT) embedded in Ontrack Inview 7.0. No matter the project size or level of complexity, effectively using Intelligent Review Technology with consultation from Kroll Ontrack's experts to integrate human input with smart technology will help clients achieve up to 50 percent in cost savings on document review.

In conjunction with the launch of the new facility, Kroll Ontrack will hold a networking event and host tours of the new document review facility on July 14, 2011 at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C. Celebrity mixologist, Todd Thrasher, will be showcased at the event and guests will enjoy customized artisan cocktails. To register for the event, please visit: http://RRRinDC.com.
