New York, NY, July 25, 2011 – TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS), one of the world’s leading providers of global legal support services, and Equivio today announced a partnership allowing for deployment of Equivio’s technology for grouping of near-duplicates and email threads. A key component of Equivio’s Smart Discovery model, the Equivio solution enables TLS to streamline the electronic discovery process for its clients.

TLS provides a full array of multilingual legal support services to its global base of customers, which include every Am Law 200 and Global 100 law firm, as well as the majority of Fortune 500 corporate legal departments. Equivio technology will now be available within its end-to-end e-discovery and legal support solutions.

“We are committed to providing law firms and corporations with the right mix of multilingual services and innovative technologies to minimize costs, accelerate turnaround times and maximize quality of their e-discovery processes,” said TransPerfect co-CEO Liz Elting. “Equivio’s technology for near-duplicates and email threads has helped us to drive operational efficiencies in the processing of large document sets, enabling our customers to perform more focused and accurate document review. In addition, Equivio’s Unicode-compliant software is well-equipped to handle the processing of multilingual datasets for our diverse clientele.”

The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allows attorneys to skip redundant data, while focusing exclusively on the unique information in each document. By enhancing the ease of data identification, Equivio reduces the risk of missing key information. The Equivio groupings also ensure similar documents are treated consistently, increase review productivity and help litigators meet tight deadlines.

“With their strong position in the e-discovery and translation space, TransPerfect is truly a leading provider of global legal support.,” said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. “We are pleased to partner with an industry leader like TLS, especially given their commitment to bringing clients smart and innovative legal support solutions for meeting today’s complex litigation challenges.”
