SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
a leading global provider of eDiscovery services for corporations and

Clearwell Proficiency. As the eDiscovery services provider in
North America with the most Clearwell-certified professionals,
Discovia develops Clearwell-specific workflows that reduce internal
investigations by weeks.
"A recent benchmarking survey1 indicates that more in-house
legal departments predict a greater increase in ethics and compliance
spending than general litigation spending. We believe this anticipated
jump in spending is driven by two issues: the proliferation of data
volumes within corporations and the increased number of internal
investigations - particularly FCPA-related in the wake of Dodd-Frank.
We're doing everything in our power to fulfill the need for defensible
internal investigations in a way that's time-efficient and
cost-effective for our clients," said Discovia Vice President of Client
Services Troy Dunham.
In 2013, Discovia worked on over 100 internal investigations and
compliance matters for multiple Fortune 500 corporations - many
of which included overseas components in Europe, Africa, the Middle
East, Latin America and Asia. The benchmarking survey also reported the
cost savings potential of comprehensive eDiscovery management programs.
For many corporations served by Discovia, eDiscovery and document review
costs can be reduced by 50 percent or more.
Discovia is a leading global provider of electronic discovery services
to corporations and law firms handling litigation, internal and ITC
investigations, and HSR Second Requests. Services include onsite and
remote data collections, data minimization, data processing and hosting,
expert application of leading technology-assisted review tools, document
review management, and document productions. Through its proprietary
processes, highly-automated operation and outstanding talent, Discovia
delivers a 99.6 percent accuracy rate, data culling rates of over 95
percent for repeat clients, and a net promoter score of over 60 percent.
Discovia is the first eDiscovery services firm to deliver a fixed-price
managed service, enabling Fortune 500 corporate legal departments
and law firms to gain a world-class eDiscovery function without building
