Kris Wasserman is Regional Vice President at D4 / Special Counsel. I interviewed him at Relativity Fest in Chicago and asked him first about D4’s use of RelativityOne.
D4 was an early adopter of RelativityOne and, Kris Wasserman said, had recently made a significant further expansion in its RelativityOne capability. This was not just in the US. D4 was one of the first RelativityOne certified partners in the UK.
The attraction for D4, he said, was that it enabled D4 to expand internationally, offering services based around Relativity and RelativityOne. Freed from the former administration tasks, they could focus on offering high-value services instead of the work that used to go on to keeping the lights on.
D4 / Special Counsel has people with expertise in all the different stages of the eDiscovery life-cycle. This allows them to branch out into other business areas such as data breach notification. RelativityOne, when supplemented by third-party applications and D4’s own tools and skills, has opened many new doors.
Kris Wasserman described the UK market as “slow and methodical”. D4 was opening doors with specialist applications such as GDPR compliance which gave D4 an opportunity to show what it was capable of with visualisations, dashboards etc.
