November 20, 2019 GMT

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epiq, a global leader in the legal services industry, today announced the expansion of its artificial intelligence (AI) enabled eDiscovery and document review services through a combination of partnerships, proprietary technology, and increased service readiness globally.

“AI provides our clients with a key to unlock the potential value, and decrease the risks and costs, inherent in the massive and growing volume of business data,” said Roger Pilc, president and general manager, Epiq legal solutions. “Already the leading industry practitioner of AI-enabled technology-assisted review services, Epiq has expanded the global reach of its AI services and trained staff.”

As part of its expanded AI initiative, Epiq announced today it is rolling out the latest versions of NexLP, Brainspace, and Relativity Analytics globally, across its industry leading global data centers. In addition to working closely with select industry AI technology leaders, Epiq also leverages data scientists and proprietary algorithms to develop new products with transformative capabilities for its clients.

To thoroughly enable the application of AI in its services, Epiq is certifying over 300 of its document review, client service, solution architect, and operations team members through detailed and proprietary training programs.

With this expansion of capability, Epiq can effectively serve its global client base, including the management of multi-jurisdictional projects. Epiq can now assure the consistent ability to manage AI-supported workflows across languages such as Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean and Japanese.

“Epiq brings the deepest human knowledge to the art and science of data review, working closely with the industry’s leading analytics practitioners,” said Eric Crawley, vice president of review and analytics. “Effectively mining sensitive data, including privileged information, requires a robust combination of human and machine intelligence. We are excited that our AI competency also provides an advantage in areas of information governance and data breach, allowing Epiq to provide broader value to our clients.”
