Since releasing its Lit i View™ eDiscovery solutions platform in March 2010, UBIC has been a leader in providing electronic data services in support of evidence protection, investigation and data analysis used in large-scale, high-stakes international litigation cases, particularly those where Asian-language data is involved.

"UBIC is among the world leaders in the development and application of machine-based processes that demonstrably improve on or replace human performance in crucial and sensitive matters related to discovery in litigation and corporate risk management," UBIC Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Masahiro Morimoto said.
