E-Discovery software leader Lateral Data, LP today announced that KNJ Group Inc., one of Los Angeles’ leading consulting and litigation support service providers, has standardized its e-Discovery services on Lateral Data’s Viewpoint™ technology platform. Using Viewpoint as its core application, KNJ Group will be able to unify the processing, review and production of electronically stored information for its law firm and corporate clients, of whom many are among the largest in the U.S.
Staffed by professionals with more than 20 years of experience, Santa Monica-based KNJ Group is highly regarded for its ability to leverage e-Discovery technology to address the unique needs of each of the firm’s clients. The company prides itself on monitoring changes in the fast-moving e-Discovery field, identifying and adopting solutions that can maximize both effectiveness and cost-savings.
“Electronic discovery gets more complex every day. That’s why our clients are excited about one-piece solutions with the bandwidth to solve problems quickly,” said Kirk M. Carter, President of KNJ Group Inc. “Lateral Data’s Viewpoint is a true innovation. It’s the most complete solution we have ever tested —not only because it executes all phases of e-Discovery, but gives the Consultant the ability to solve problems like data reintroduction, error files, de-nisting and other complex problems. In the legal field, time is the one commodity you can’t get more of—and Viewpoint will help us, and our clients, remove the delays to effective e-Discovery.”
Viewpoint, Lateral Data’s flagship product, is a licensed solution that facilitates virtually all the major components of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) spectrum including collection and preservation of data, pre-processing, full processing, analysis, review and production. The product was developed over a seven year period of real-world use by a legal services company, giving it significant advantages in both core and convenience features over products developed by software companies not in the legal profession.
Featuring a familiar Outlook-style interface, Viewpoint can execute tasks at speeds two to five times that of other leading platforms. It delivers all the E-discovery tasks a service provider needs in a single package, enabling the user to do more with a dramatically smaller technology investment.
“KNJ Group’s prominence in the Southern California legal community is exceptional. Having it as a partner is a powerful testimony to the popularity of Viewpoint,” said Matt Berry, Founder and CEO of Lateral Data, LP. “We’re excited by the potential for increased exposure of Viewpoint to a whole new community of clients in Los Angeles and the entire Southland area.”
Viewpoint, now in Version 5.0, is currently available for licensing. Lateral Data will be exhibiting Viewpoint at LegalTech West, May 17-18 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. For more about Viewpoint, visit the company’s exhibit at Booth 512, log on to www.lateraldata.com, or call (877) 592-8585.
