Agreement will accelerate adoption of modern ediscovery to legal teams in the region
OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Everlaw, the cloud-native investigation and litigation platform, and adio, an ediscovery provider in Australia, today announced a multi-year strategic partnership to bring Everlaw's cloud-based service ediscovery platform to legal customers in Australia and New Zealand. The agreement is the latest in Everlaw's new partnership program, which aims to deliver Everlaw-specific expertise — especially for the complex operations of law firms and the growing needs of corporate in-house counsel.
The collaboration combines adio's deep IT and ediscovery expertise with Everlaw's cloud-based ediscovery platform to deliver a streamlined and sophisticated ediscovery solution to the Australian and New Zealand market. Adio will focus on delivering Everlaw's state-of-the-art technology, rich collaboration features, advanced AI and a modern, intuitive interface and to continue to tie together the value and business outcomes customers know and expect from Everlaw.
Legal teams need to be agile and move quickly in order to efficiently and accurately uncover the evidence needed to argue and win cases, but legacy tools based on hosted services and manual processes hold them back. Cloud-based ediscovery tools provide an incomparable speed, scalability and security and many agree: 96% of legal professionals view the shift to the cloud as inevitable by 2024, according to an Everlaw survey. In addition, legal teams deploying cloud-based, software-as-a-service solutions reported real benefits to workflow efficiency, developing predictable cost reduction models and making use of advanced tools in the ediscovery process.
"Adio is excited to partner with Everlaw to bring a complete technology stack to Australian and New Zealand lawyers," said adio Founder Ben Kennedy. "Everlaw delivers cutting-edge technology that is easy to use and raises the bar for dealing with data quickly when preparing for litigation, undertaking ediscovery, responding to regulatory requests, and assessing data breaches."
