Eversheds Sutherland is a global provider of legal services

Eversheds Sutherland has partnered with OpenText, a global leader in Enterprise Information Management, to create ES/Locate, an e-discovery platform that will be available to the firm’s 700 disputes and investigations lawyers.

Powered by OpenText Discovery’s Axcelerate Cloud, Eversheds Sutherland’s new technology provides clients with a faster and more accurate review of electronically stored information using powerful data analytics, predictive coding, and interactive data visualisation tools.

To spearhead this new initiative, Eversheds Sutherland has recruited Enzo Lisciotto as its Head of Litigation Technology in London. Enzo joins from Norton Rose Fulbright and will be part of the firm’s Litigation Support Unit, led by partner Nick Rundle. The Unit focuses on best use of technology in disclosure and document review work and supports the Litigation Group more generally with central resource and project management capability.

Paul Worth, Litigation Co-Head at Eversheds Sutherland, comments:

“ES/Locate significantly advances our data processing capability in the complex litigation and investigations environment by allowing us to centralise our e-discovery projects into a single, secure, cloud-based platform. We are delighted to work with OpenText as a trusted partner to deliver this solution.”

Simon Price, UK Managing Director of OpenText Discovery, comments:

“We are thrilled to be working with Eversheds Sutherland in developing its industry-leading e-discovery platform. This innovative approach will enhance Eversheds Sutherland’s information and document review offering, providing significant added value to its clients and litigators.”
