AmLaw 200 Firm Renews DISCO Partnership and Ups Commitment to Cloud-based Discovery

AUSTIN — March 14, 2019 — AmLaw 200 firm Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, a multidisciplinary, integrated national professional services firm, today announced the renewal of its firmwide ediscovery subscription with cloud legaltech leader DISCO.

Manatt has used DISCO for nearly three years, and worked with the company to fully replace its on-premise discovery solution to move to the cloud. DISCO was an immediate success with Manatt’s attorneys as it completely transformed their discovery experiences and provided opportunities to differentiate the firm from competitors stuck using slow and inefficient legacy technology solutions.  

They haven’t looked back.

“Our firm is always looking for ways to leverage technology to improve client service. Going all-in on cloud-based discovery was a big step forward — and the right step for us and our business,” said Jim Rosenthal, Manatt director of litigation support. “DISCO is a big hit with our attorneys and litigation staff, and we’re continuing to expand our use of DISCO to other practice groups as its search functionality is unrivaled.”

For Manatt, DISCO’s ease of use, speed and efficiency are key differentiators over its previous legacy solution. With minimal training required to get users up and running on the platform, its discovery team praises DISCO’s simplified search functionality and the ability to quickly and easily cull data. In addition, the predictability of pricing and lack of hidden costs makes a big difference in working with clients and partners, and the secure cloud environment makes it easy to collaborate with outside parties.

“Manatt recognizes how advanced technologies can transform its client service and ultimately its business. The firm’s move to cloud-based discovery created new ways for their teams to work faster and smarter, and it is realizing the benefits beyond simply better discovery,” said DISCO Chief Marketing Officer Neil Etheridge. “Partnering with Manatt has been a mutually rewarding experience over the past few years and we are delighted to continue our work together moving forward.”
