Perkins Coie LLP Selects D4 for eDiscovery Managed Services
National Managed Data and eDiscovery leader will provide innovative, advanced technology and cost savings to AmLaw 100 international law firm
ROCHESTER, NY and CHICAGO, IL, May 10th, 2016 ‒ D4, a leading provider of managed and eDiscovery services, announced today that they have entered into a managed services agreement with Perkins Coie LLP, one of the largest law firms in the United States
Through a Managed Services Agreement with Perkins Coie, D4 will provide the firm and its clients immediate access to the latest and most advanced legal services technology, people and infrastructure, including data reduction, processing, analytics and predictive coding solutions, both in the U.S. and in D4’s new service center in Shanghai, China.
“Our managed services relationship with D4 allows us to accomplish our goals by pairing state-of-the-art technology with custom, cutting-edge strategies.”
The volume of electronically stored information continues to grow unabated, and the tools and technology needed to securely store and manage that information often evolves at a pace that makes keeping up with advances an economic impossibility for law firms and their clients. Through its managed services arrangement with D4, Perkins Coie will have all the advantages of a sophisticated, accessible eDiscovery and litigation support team with the best and latest tools and technology, at a predictable price.
Geoffrey Vance, Perkins Coie Litigation Partner and Firmwide Chair of the firm’s eDiscovery Services & Strategy Practice, expressed excitement with his group’s new relationship with D4. “We are always trying to find new ways to provide creative and top-notch legal services while reducing the costs and risks associated with eDiscovery.” He added, “Our managed services relationship with D4 allows us to accomplish our goals by pairing state-of-the-art technology with custom, cutting-edge strategies.”
D4 CEO and founder John Holland noted, “It is especially satisfying to be selected by a firm as sophisticated in information governance as Perkins Coie.” Mr. Holland went on to add, “Our service center in Shanghai proved to be an advantage for D4, as many Perkins Coie clients and attorneys require the ability to host data on secure servers located in the People’s Republic of China.”
