Quarles & Brady LLP, a multidisciplinary AmLaw 200 legal services provider, announced their selection of cloud technology leader DISCO as a preferred, firmwide ediscovery partner.
With about 500 attorneys practicing at 11 offices across the U.S., the litigators at Quarles & Brady are engaged in substantial discovery efforts on behalf of their clients. Frustrated with alternative solutions that have proven slower and more difficult to use, the firm was interested in moving to a cloud-based discovery platform that would enable it to have the latest features, enhancements, and upgrades — without spending time and money adapting internal systems to try to keep up with technology changes and advancements.
“We want to utilize our technology investments to better serve our clients. With DISCO, we are more nimble and can get through large amounts of documents rapidly, so we can uncover the facts more quickly,” said Patrick Murphy, Partner, Quarles & Brady. “DISCO is a best-in-class discovery platform and their team of professionals are true partners in helping us leverage technology to simplify the discovery process and remain focused on our client work.”
The choice to move to DISCO was a simple one for Quarles & Brady. The firm demanded an easy-to-use platform that its lawyers and paralegals would be able to embrace with minimal training, and DISCO’s intuitive nature was a key differentiator from other discovery solutions. New users are immediately effective with document review, processing, and analytics while reducing costs and time to review and thus providing immediate value to clients.
Another standout feature of DISCO for Quarles & Brady is the platform’s search term report functionality. In the past, the firm would lose substantial amounts of time waiting on discovery vendors to run and deliver search term reports. With DISCO, the results are immediate and enable reviewers to interactively engage with their entire document set, no matter how large, with zero setup. From email timelines to breakdowns of custodians and document types, users can point-and-click to explore and understand the data, instantly and intuitively.
“When other discovery vendors add costly and time-consuming roadblocks that get in the way of practicing law, DISCO puts the power in the hands of our customers,” said Andrew Shimek, DISCO Chief Revenue Officer. “DISCO empowers legal professionals to work faster, smarter and do more to serve their clients. Firms like Quarles & Brady recognize that an innovative approach to technology can make a huge difference in client service and ultimately can be a real competitive differentiator.”
