Huron Legal teams up with Commonwealth Legal to bring cost-effective eDiscovery review to Canada

We are hearing more and more about electronic discovery in Canada, not least through the activities of Commonwealth Legal, now a division of Ricoh Canada.

Despite Canada’s geographical proximity to the US, Canadian corporations lawyers cannot simply send their data across the border to take advantage of competitive US rates for review and other elements of the eDiscovery process because of Canada’s data protection laws. US companies who want Canadian business must therefore go to Canada.

Huron Legal has announced a tie-up with Commonwealth Legal following a number of significant review projects which they have done together. That has now been extended into a cross-border alliance which brings Huron Legal’s competitive review solutions into the Canadian marketplace.

Bob Rowe, Executive VP of Huron Legal, said “the alliance now provides Canadian customers the benefit of keeping their data within the protection of Canadian borders, that allows them to gain access to competitive review rates typical of the US market”.

There is a press release about this here.
