Law Society urges members to protect post-Brexit practise rights… New financial chief for Norton Rose Fulbright…
A new name in e-discovery has been launched by Corrs Chambers Westgarth.
Telesto will operate as a separate business from the law firm but was created by its Legal Technology Solutions Group and will benefit from Corrs’ innovations and expertise in the sector.
“The legal market in Australia and globally has been calling for an e-discovery solution that not only takes advantage of the rapid developments in cloud computing, but passes on the speed and cost benefits of cloud computing and ever advancing technology to clients,” according to Telesto founder, consultant and Corrs partner, Michael do Rozario said.
Telesto aims to cut the costs of e-discovery for clients and provide a suite of services including e-discovery consulting, forensic preservation and acquisition, processing data for use in e-discovery, early case assessment, advanced analytics, technology-assisted review (predictive coding), paralegal review and document production.
Do Rozario says that many e-discovery solutions are limited in their ability to scale to meet requirements, and that has an impact on cost.
"Structurally, it is clear that e-discovery should continually get cheaper but that is not often the experience in the market. Much of this comes down to the dominance of the one-size-fits-all model offered by e-discovery providers and technology platforms.
The society is calling on lawyers to write to their MPs to put pressure on law makers to protect the ability for UK lawyers to practise, establish law firms, and have rights of audience in EU member states.
“The legal sector’s positive contribution to the economy will be jeopardised by any outcome in the Brexit negotiations that fails to secure market access for the legal services sector,” the society says.
