One of the big areas of growth in eDiscovery support is managed litigation services. Litigation departments, whether in law firms or companies, who do not want to buy and manage their own systems nor want to spend time outsourcing to multiple providers, are increasingly turning to companies who will offer a consolidated service of both software and support them.
One of the fastest growing providers of discovery management services is IRIS Data Services. They already have offices in 11 US cities, in Europe, India and China, and have now added a client services office in Nashville.
IRIS offers a range of software solutions, including those from Nuix, Equivio and Relativity from kCura, applying whichever of these front-rank tools is appropriate for the circumstances.
The national office will provide project management, client support and sales operations. The President of Iris, Major Baisden, said in a press release:
“Our new office in Nashville cements our company’s commitment to our clients in the Nashville area. We have experienced tremendous growth in this market and are excited to offer increased local service to firms with growing amounts of complex litigation. Real, comprehensive consultative services and support are requirements of electronic discovery. This office makes it easier for our clients to centralize all aspects of discovery so they can focus on delivering higher value to their clients.”
In a separate press release, Iris announces that it has made two promotions to VP of Sales. Irvin Marchand and John Stanton take responsibility for sales in the Eastern and Western regions of the US respectively.
