Epiq Systems has expanded in New York by opening a new document review centre in downtown Manhattan offering document review services, staffing, managed review, technology assisted review and audio review. The press release is here.
Epiq now has five review centres in New York. Since the volume of litigation has not noticeably increased, and since Epiq is not the only company providing managed review services, one must conclude that more and more law firms are turning to the use of managed review services as a transparently-priced and efficient means getting through this most expensive component of an eDiscovery exercise.
Whilst on the subject of Epiq, here is a link to the Autumn / Winter edition of Epiq Insights with links to other articles of interest including one by International Managing Director Greg Wildisen on Global Regulation, Cross-Border Disputes and Growing Cooperation between National Regulators.
