Ricoh's legal document services
Ricoh is the largest provider of legal document services in the country,
providing a full suite of services for law firms and corporate counsel.
Customers include the majority of the AmLaw 200 and NLJ 250 firms, and the
legal departments of many Fortune 1000 companies. Proficient legal information
management helps reduce costs, improves efficiency and frees employees to
focus on the law. One particular area of growth is Ricoh's eDiscovery

eDiscovery refers to the identification, preservation, collection, processing,
review, analysis and production of electronically stored information (ESI) in
support of litigation. As more information is stored electronically in more
places, the challenge of organizing it on demand is increasing. Ricoh was
recognized twice for eDiscovery this year, reflecting the build-out of the
company's infrastructure and its growing reputation in a highly competitive

Ricoh now operates more than 40 document processing centers, half of which
process local electronically stored information for eDiscovery, and four data
centers around the country dedicated to eDiscovery services. In addition, the
company operates domestic and offshore coding facilities with total capacity
to code five million pages per month.

"eDiscovery is a complex process," said Eric Wangler, Vice President, Legal,
Ricoh Americas Corporation. "If not managed effectively, it can lead to heavy
penalties, which in fact have reached an all-time high. Our expert project
teams, proven methodologies and powerful infrastructure enable law firms and
corporate counsel clients to move smoothly and cost-effectively through the
eDiscovery process and increase their chances of successful outcomes."

Ricoh's growth in legal solutions offerings includes a seamless integration
with the former HSSK Forensics, Inc., a leading computer forensics and
electronic discovery provider that Ricoh acquired earlier this year. Ricoh
gained HSSK Forensics' Remlox™ remote data collection tool and the HSSK
Forensics lab in Houston, the first private computer forensics lab accredited
by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation
Board (ASCLD/LAB).

Ricoh also provides clients with an eDiscovery portal to help them streamline
workflow and control costs. The portal integrates early case assessment tools
with the predictive coding of Relativity® Assisted Review, all through Ricoh's
state-of-the-art data center.
