Epiq has enhanced its status as a global provider of legal technology solutions and services by making kCura’s Relativity available in the People’s Republic of China. Epiq is a Relativity Orange Level, Best in Service hosting partner and has data centres in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Tokyo as well as in the US, UK and Germany.
Bob Hopen, Senior Vice President and General Manager, International Markets for Epiq said:
“With litigation and regulatory investigations becoming increasingly complex and involving multiple jurisdictions, it is important for legal teams to be able to process and review information on a global scale. Adding Relativity to Epiq’s solutions in China will further allow us to meet the growing needs of our clients who do business there.”
Epiq opened its Hong Kong office in 2009 and has expanded its client base, along with its services, staff, offices and data centres in Asia since then. In addition to the provision of hosting from its Shanghai data centre, Epiq can take its technology to the data where necessary with portable facilities. That is a key ability in a jurisdiction where state secrets inhibit the export of data, making it vital to be able to cull and process data in country.
