Washington, DC, January 8th, 2009 – Barrister Digital Solutions LLC (BDS), a full-service litigation support company, today announced the adoption of Equivio’s technology for near-duplicates and email threads. The Equivio solution will enable BDS to enhance the efficiency of its electronic discovery services.

“Using Equivio’s best-of-breed technology for near-duplicates and email threads extends the value of service we provide to our clients,” said Michael Rhodes, Director of IT Services at BDS. “By using Equivio, we are now able to offer our clients an enhanced electronic discovery solution that shortens the time and significantly lowers the cost of document review.”

The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allows attorneys to skip redundant data, while focusing exclusively on the unique information in each document.
