CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/17/11 -- kCura today announced that Milberg LLP, one of the world's preeminent plaintiff law firms, has adopted Method. Milberg will use kCura's flexible, web-based workflow and notification system for the management of legal hold and risk assessment processes in future cases.
By adopting Method, Milberg has extended their in-house e-discovery software capabilities. Combined with the review, analysis, and production functionality in Relativity, the firm has acquired a powerful platform for assessing and solving their clients' litigation challenges.
"The initiation of an effective legal hold is a crucial first step in modern litigation," said Ariana Tadler, Member of the Executive Committee at Milberg. "Method is a tool that will help us address this area through the automation and auditing of sound practices."
Using Method, Milberg can organize legal holds into efficient, repeatable processes. Method's customizable workflows allow users to scale the application to fit the needs of all of their matters, while maintaining defensibility through detailed reporting tools that produce thorough audit trails of custodian communications. This functionality can also be used to take a proactive approach to litigation by facilitating data mapping and information-gathering exercises.
