LexFusion had to select an eDiscovery partner at some point, it was really just a question of which company would join the go-to-market collective. Now we have our answer: this morning, DISCO announced that it would be joining up.
“LexFusion has their finger firmly on the pulse of the legal industry — they understand the business need to embrace the cloud and automation, as well as the challenges that can come when undertaking transformational change,” DISCO Chief Revenue Officer Andrew Shimek said.
If you’ve not been paying attention to LexFusion, the company marshals the deep legal tech experience represented by its leadership team and channels that into vetting and selecting the “best-in-breed” performers addressing law firm pain points. It’s an oversimplification, but think of LexFusion as a concierge or personal shopper service figuring out the suite of products from the legal tech landscape that firms need. If your firm or in-house legal department doesn’t have the time or expertise to parse through a bunch of different platforms to figure out what gets the necessary results, that’s where LexFusion comes in.
Joe Borstein, LexFusion Chief Executive Officer, said:
As legal professionals scale service-delivery capabilities, taking full advantage of the latest advances in technology is foundational.
We must embrace new tools as we collectively confront a new wave of litigation, investigations, and information governance challenges in an increasingly complex landscape that is once again making ediscovery a focal point for meeting the legal needs of the enterprise…. DISCO’s cutting-edge technology is wrapped in an unparalleled user experience and paired with a world-class services arm. As a result, DISCO is able to offer the industry’s most predictable and transparent pricing. While our search convinced us there are many attention-worthy innovations upending the ediscovery status quo, DISCO offered the most fully realized value proposition and the most compelling vision for what comes next.
This makes 11 members for the LexFusion collective.
