Solomon Ward Chooses AccessData’s Summation

Press Release

January 21, 2013

AccessData, a pioneer of digital investigations and litigation support solutions, announced that Solomon Ward Seidenwurm & Smith, LLP has chosen Summation Pro for its litigation support software platform. Solomon Ward first installed Summation Pro in May 2012 and as a result has been able to eliminate large amounts of irrelevant data from its evidence universe, leading to a direct reduction in clients’ litigation costs.

Solomon Ward is an early adopter and installed Summation Pro when it was first released. “We experienced excellent customer service from the very beginning of our install,” stated Laney Schatz, senior litigation paralegal and litigation support analyst for Solomon Ward. “The volume of email and electronically stored information received at our firm can be extremely large, but much of it is just noise. Summation Pro has made handling and navigating this data so much easier. It has really allowed us to cut through that noise and find the relevant and discoverable documents – quicker and less expensively.”

The firm uses Summation Pro’s built-in data processing, culling and filtering tools as well as its rich set of case analysis features.

Additionally, Solomon Ward is able to offer clients expanded services. By using Summation Pro, the firm ingests and processes data at rates that are greatly reduced from those of current litigation service providers. Moreover its front-end feature set allows the firm to avoid passing large amounts of clearly irrelevant data to the human review stage that, in a recent survey, the Rand Corporation concluded amounts to 73 percent of e-discovery expenses.

“We have enjoyed working with AccessData,” stated Bill Kammer, partner and e-discovery lead counsel at Solomon Ward. “In addition to using Summation Pro, we have just purchased AD's MPE+ product for mobile device discovery and will deploy it soon because we see mobile devices as the next huge source of electronic evidence.”

“We highly value clients like Solomon Ward,” stated AccessData CEO Tim Leehealey. “The firm is an innovator that truly understands the importance of a comprehensive electronic discovery solution - especially how to navigate the law and technology surrounding it. We are honored to support their efforts by providing them with the best software and services to allow them to serve their clients.”

Designed to run on the powerful and proven AccessData technology core, Summation Pro is a web-based document, electronic data and transcript review platform that accommodates the workflows of contemporary legal teams. It is simple to use, highly secure and is the first product to combine comprehensive data processing, early case assessment and final review features into a single platform– eliminating the need for iterative processing, data loading and review cycles.
