BDO Expands Global E-Discovery Capabilities

April 2019


BDO First to Offer Cloud-Based E-Discovery Solution RelativityOne in Brazil
 

April 8, 2019—CHICAGO—BDO USA LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional services firms, today announced it is expanding the firm’s global e-discovery capabilities with the addition of Relativity’s cloud-based e-discovery solution, RelativityOne, in Brazil. BDO Brazil, part of the international BDO network, was the first to use RelativityOne in the Brazilian market.  
 
"Adding RelativityOne to our services portfolio in Brazil enables us to provide a globally consistent client experience,” said Jenna Aira-Ventrella, managing director in BDO USA’s Forensic Technology Services  practice leading e-discovery services. “BDO’s multinational clients will benefit from a single solution for the entire e-Discovery process, including the latest in advanced analytics and data processing, along with the increased flexibility and performance of the cloud.”
 
BDO clients can use RelativityOne on complex, cross-border data matters with confidence, knowing that the platform, built on Microsoft Azure Cloud, the leader in cloud security with more than 50 industry certifications, offers industry-leading security protections. Both RelativityOne and Azure have achieved the ISO 27001 compliance designation, the global standard for managing information security risk. RelativityOne also gives BDO users the flexibility to pick and choose solutions from the Relativity App Hub that best suits their unique workflows across different stages of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model —and solve data challenges outside of e-discovery.
 
"Migrating to a cloud solution gives us the scalability needed to manage cases of all sizes,” said Adriano Corrêa, partner and associate of BDO Brazil’s Forensics, Investigation and Disputes practice. "The addition of RelativityOne will enable us to provide increasingly agile services adhering to the business models of our customers and simplifies all aspects of the e-discovery process, enabling shorter review times and better insights for clients.”
 
"With RelativityOne, our customers have more autonomy in the document review process to manage their own projects in Relativity,” says Carlos Dias, senior manager in BDO Brazil’s Forensic Technology Services practice. “BDO Brazil has deep experience with Relativity and has the support of BDO USA. The expansion of this partnership allows us to expand our hybrid model for e-Discovery, by connecting our existing Relativity on-premises instances with RelativityOne in the UK, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, Shanghai and Brazil, and will be instrumental in continuing to serve our customers across the globe.”
 
The BDO team holds more than 30 Relativity certifications and has received Relativity’s Best in Service designation in the U.S. several times in the past, further demonstrating BDO’s continued focus on delivering the highest standard of service, providing exceptional quality experience, and client satisfaction.
 
"We are thrilled to have BDO as our first RelativityOne partner in Brazil," said Jeff Seymour, director of channel sales at Relativity. "BDO is a valued Relativity partner with a long history of expertise using the platform. We look forward to further supporting BDO’s team when solving unique data challenges across the globe with our flexible and secure cloud solution."
