Morrison Cohen Increases eDiscovery Capacity through Managed Services with Iris

Kansas City, February 3, 2015 – Iris Data Services, the leader in eDiscovery managed services, today announced that Morrison Cohen LLP, a New York-based commercial law firm, has experienced great results through a multi-year managed services partnership agreement with Iris. Iris provides kCura’s eDiscovery platform Relativity on an Infrastructure as a Service basis, giving Morrison Cohen the ability to scale the platform as needed. Since signing the contract with Iris more than a year ago, the firm has continued to increase the capacity and efficiency of its eDiscovery services.

“Managed services has been a great business decision for our firm,” said Mary Flynn, partner and co-chair of business litigation. “We now host eDiscovery cases of all sizes without relying on external vendors. This partnership enables us to control the process and provide top tier service and value for our clients.”

“I’ve never seen a service provider that engages and partners with us the way Iris does,” said Jason Reid, litigation support manager at Morrison Cohen. “They learned about our practices, values, and culture to such a degree that they have literally become an extension of our team. It’s a solid partnership built on trust and results.”

“Morrison Cohen’s focus on efficiency is a mission that we share at Iris,” said Major Baisden, president of Iris Data Services. “The firm has always offered top-tier legal experience, and their eDiscovery capabilities now exceed that of much larger firms – but without the hefty price tag.”

Before moving to managed services, Morrison Cohen’s large cases would be outsourced to vendors at greater cost to clients. The efficiency and scale Iris brings has allowed Morrison Cohen to use the best tools and technology on all cases, regardless of size. The benefits of this efficiency are passed on to Morrison Cohen’s clients.
