Kroll Ontrack and Hudson Legal (NASDAQ: HSON) today announced a partnership that combines robust technology assisted review (TAR) functionality with highly skilled and experienced review teams. Together, Kroll Ontrack, a world leader in ediscovery and data recovery software, and Hudson Legal, a global provider of ediscovery solutions, managed review and legal staffing, will offer law firms and corporations world-class next-generation discovery solutions. “More than ever before, ediscovery requires both highly qualified people and cutting-edge technology to maximize results and achieve cost savings,” said Mark Yacano, executive vice president, Hudson Legal. “Both Hudson and Kroll Ontrack deliver high quality, pragmatic, client-focused solutions in every document review. Our comparable approach and philosophies will ensure a successful union.” Over the past 10 years, Hudson has evolved from a pure staffing company into a sophisticated provider of managed review services, along with its core staffing offering. From that experience, Hudson has developed capabilities and services that have been recognized for their accuracy in cost estimation, rapid turnaround and minimization of errors. To maximize the speed and accuracy of ediscovery review, Hudson will leverage Kroll Ontrack’s leading online review platform, Ontrack® Inview™, which automatically distributes documents to review teams and actively learns from its attorney “trainers,” to continuously enhance the accuracy of the prioritization and categorization of documents. “This technology is more than simply predictive coding, as it offers richer options beyond responsive and non-responsive for the categorization of documents,” said John Grancarich, vice president of ediscovery strategy, Kroll Ontrack. “By doing so, the speed, accuracy and cost-savings of the legal review process are truly maximized.” “Clients have claimed productivity improvements of more than 170 percent when leveraging our Intelligent Review Technology,” said Dean Hager, president and CEO, Kroll Ontrack. “This technology coupled with Hudson’s deep expertise in document review will produce unsurpassed results for our clients. Collectively, we act as one provider delivering seamless execution and open communication resulting in a better controlled, better quality ediscovery project.”
