Exclusive strategic alliance will provide cicayda’s managed services and eDiscovery suite to UK and Irish legal market
cicayda, a software company delivering 100% cloud-based e-discovery applications, today announced that Legastat, a London-based specialist litigation support and edisclosure provider, will be its exclusive strategic alliance partner for the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
Legastat will handle all of cicayda's managed services for the UK market and the two companies will jointly host all data inside the UK, with no data migration to Canada or the U.S.
Legastat are experts in reprographics and specialist litigation support for the legal sector. Located in the heart of legal London, the company has delivered professional litigation support and edisclosure services professional to top law firms, corporations, government agencies, as well as small law firms and sole practitioners since 1953. As part of the strategic partnership, cicayda will provide its cicayda software platform including early case assessment, discovery/search technology, legal hold management, and document review for UK law firms, corporate, and government. Legastat will continue to provide their expertise in terms of data collection, data processing, and professional services to the UK legal industry while having the cicayda solution to work with.
"We are positively thrilled to be partnering with a reputable and proven legal services provider like Legastat," stated Roe Frazer, cicayda’s CEO, veteran trial lawyer and former CaseLogistix CEO. "This is not a reseller arrangement or marketing puffery. Legastat will be cicayda's exclusive eDiscovery services and software provider in the UK and Ireland. We are fully supporting each other from a sales and marketing standpoint and will do what is necessary to provide the Legastat team with the cicayda applications and expertise they need to be successful and better serve the edisclosure needs of their clients and prospects."
The cicayda/Legastat partnership is effective immediately and the two companies are already collaborating on a joint edisclosure pilot project on behalf of a reputable UK law firm. They shortly will launch joint marketing activities in the U.K. and Ireland.
According to Legastat managing director Casian Sala, cicayda's business model and the 'enabling intelligent lawyering' mantra fit very well with his company's mission. "At Legastat we put our customers’ needs, quality and confidentiality at the heart of everything we do. Roe Frazer and his team share the same philosophy and with cicayda have built an edisclosure platform and solution set that aims to bring price sanity, usability and new flexibility to the tried and true EDD marketplace. We have had many discussions with Roe about how we can collaborate to provide our clients and the UK market with the cicayda solution and feel confident our exclusive strategic alliance partnership is the most pragmatic way to accomplish this."
According to Roe Frazer, cicayda studied the entire U.K. legal services industry in search of a company that wanted to adopt cicayda’s “better way” of software, support, and services. “We sought a company with our philosophy of being real change to the way eDiscovery software is used and deployed as well as total price transparency and correction to the eDiscovery marketplace. We found a like-minded company in Legastat.”
