Milberg Spins Off Litigation Support Department

Nov 02, 2015, 15:26 ET from Milberg LLP

NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Milberg LLP announces today that it will spin off its Litigation Support and Data Hosting services division to a separate, independently owned business.  The new business, Meta-e Discovery LLC, will be based in Stamford, CT and continue to serve mainly plaintiff's oriented litigants as they work through the discovery process, from early case assessment to trial.

"We are making this move to increase efficiencies internally, as well as to create a nimble company that can respond to and support our existing and future clients' electronic discovery needs," said Sanford Dumain, Milberg's Chairman.

Meta-e Discovery will be managed by Paul H. McVoy, Milberg's current Chief Discovery Officer.  "I am excited by this opportunity to take the company-within-a-company we started at Milberg and make it into a leader in the electronic discovery service provider space.  Using our expert knowledge of handling major litigations with various budgetary constraints, we can help any party level the playing field no matter how large or well-funded their opponents may be."

Milberg formed its Litigation Support and Data Hosting services division 5 years ago as an offshoot to its eDiscovery Legal Practice.  "This is the logical next step for what we have been building.  The new company is the perfect model for law firms seeking ediscovery services from those who have been in the trenches fighting the battle every day in real cases," Ariana J. Tadler, Executive Committee member and group founder, stated.

Meta-e will continue to manage the ongoing litigation support needs of Milberg, as well as serving its current customers.  Its mission will be to help its customers maximize the benefits of its existing Relativity Platform with its own proprietary workflow geared to leveraging technology assisted review as it applies to received productions.  Meta-e will also develop new software in the mobile computing and artificial intelligence arenas specifically geared to the discovery process.
