Kroll Ontrack responds to customer demand for global document review services with new European facility in the heart of London’s legal district

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 4, 2014 – Kroll Ontrack, the leading global provider of ediscovery and data recovery products and services, today announced the launch, in early January 2015, of a document review center in the heart of London’s legal district. The dedicated facility based within Kroll Ontrack’s European headquarters will feature state-of-the-art review tools and a team of 40-plus specialized legal professionals assigned to individual cases on the basis of their knowledge and experience.

The proximity of the new secure facility to London’s law firms will make it easier for legal professionals to physically oversee their document review projects, while Kroll Ontrack’s technology and facilities will attract the highest quality legal reviewers in what is quickly becoming a very competitive marketplace.

The review teams will rely on Kroll Ontrack’s ediscovery.com Review platform to quickly sift through and locate relevant documents for particular matters. The award-winning1 platform features technology assisted review (TAR) and integrates cutting-edge intelligent prioritization and categorization with automated workflow and quality control functionality.

“We have successfully offered a document review service in the U.S., and in response to requests from our clients, are readily expanding into Europe with London as our central location,” said Tim Phillips, managing director of Kroll Ontrack International Legal Technologies. “Corporations and their law firms need more efficient ways to review large volumes of documents, and they have begun looking for trusted partners to address these needs. Our clients prefer to use a center where they can physically oversee the review process when needed. Even more, legal professionals can access ediscovery technology and document review under one trusted brand.”

Kroll Ontrack’s new center is able to handle document review projects regardless of the matter type, language, volume of documents or timeline. Its document review lawyers are given highly focused training on how to get the most out of Kroll Ontrack’s technology, thereby improving efficiency as well as reducing costs. Kroll Ontrack review teams are trained to serve as an extension to their clients’ legal teams, working with them as integrated partners.

The launch of the document review center is a key component of Kroll Ontrack’s overall global strategy to provide ediscovery services wherever and whenever clients need them. The London facility is equipped to accommodate document review needs both across the U.K. and at client-selected locations across Europe, including at clients’ premises.

“Our London document review center launches against a background of the rapid globalization in the legal services industry driven by factors such as growth in multi-national litigation and investigations,” said Dave Alampi, senior vice president of product management and marketing, Kroll Ontrack. “Companies in the U.S. frequently need to collect and review data located in Europe. The complexity of European data protection laws often makes it important to review some of this data in Europe before transferring it to the U.S. By partnering with a trusted, international brand like Kroll Ontrack, law firms and their clients can rely on high quality document review services that deliver the required results at a fraction of the cost.”
