LONDON, Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LDM Global, a premier international provider of litigation support services, today announced its adoption of Equivio's technology for grouping near-duplicates and email threads. By eliminating data redundancy, the Equivio solution enables LDM Global to enhance the value of its electronic discovery services while reducing review costs for its customers.

LDM Global is using Equivio's technology as a standard component within its comprehensive Electronic Discovery and Data Processing services. The Equivio solution streamlines data processing and significantly reduces the volume of documents that need to be reviewed.

"Finding a way to bring spiraling litigation costs under control is a major priority for law firms and corporate legal departments," said Donald Macfarlane, Head of Global Operations & General Counsel at LDM Global. "At LDM Global we are committed to utilizing best-of-breed technologies which deliver maximum value for our clients, and help drive down the cost of discovery.  By using Equivio for grouping near-duplicates and email threads, we are able to expedite the review of large-scale document collections while enhancing review quality and minimizing risk."

The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allows attorneys to skip redundant data, while focusing exclusively on the unique information in each document. By enhancing the ease of data identification, Equivio reduces the risk of missing key information. The Equivio groupings also ensure similar documents are treated consistently, increase review productivity and help litigators meet tight deadlines.

"As a leading international provider of e-discovery services for Fortune 500 companies and law firms, LDM Global is well aware of the universal need for smart solutions that accelerate document review and curb overall litigation costs," said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio.
