NEW YORK -- August 20, 2013

LexisNexis® Legal & Professional (, a leading global
provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the release of a
new version of Concordance® Evolution that supports the direct import of files
from LAW PreDiscovery™, significantly reducing time, costs and storage needs
by streamlining electronic discovery workflow.

Concordance Evolution is the next generation of a fully installed enterprise
review software product for electronic discovery and litigation document
management. LAW PreDiscovery is an advanced imaging and electronic discovery
software application from LexisNexis that offers litigation teams the ability
to filter and cull non-responsive e-discovery and scanned documents before

“With the release of the latest version of Concordance Evolution, customers no
longer have to export data from LAW PreDiscovery before loading it into
Concordance Evolution,” explained Steve Ashbacher, vice president for
Concordance at LexisNexis Litigation Tools & Professional Services. “The
integration between the two applications enables users to directly import
databases, fields and tags from LAW PreDiscovery, then point to the underlying
documents, text and images in LAW PreDiscovery. We believe that, with this
integration, customers can save time and reduce their previous data storage
requirements by as much as 50 percent.”

In addition to the time, cost and storage savings gained by eliminating the
need to export data out of LAW PreDiscovery before loading it into Concordance
Evolution, the integration of the two software applications helps users by:

  *Reducing time and risk – setting up fields within Concordance Evolution,
    users can now directly import fields from LAW PreDiscovery, substantially
    reducing the time (as much as eight hours per matter) and risk of human
    error associated with manually setting up fields for a new case;
  *Easier importing and customization of tags – users can now directly import
    file tags from LAW PreDiscovery into Concordance Evolution and then choose
    advanced customization options to map specific groups of tags into new
    tags within Concordance Evolution; and
  *Accessing powerful e-discovery processing engine – rather than relying on
    a limited internal processing engine, Concordance Evolution customers can
    now leverage LAW PreDiscovery’s market-leading processing engine for
    filtering non-responsive documents before review.

“The integration between Concordance Evolution and LAW PreDiscovery simplifies
and accelerates the workflow from processing to review, a crucial and costly
phase of the electronic discovery process,” said Ashbacher.

Concordance Evolution handles e-discovery management for cases of any size and
is specifically designed for large-scale, complex litigation. The software
helps law firms, government agencies, litigation service bureaus and
application service providers reduce their overall e-discovery cost and boost
their litigation workflow productivity while managing the largest and most
complex cases. Concordance Evolution is available with a base cost for the
software application and a per-seat licensing fee; in addition to the fully
installed version, Concordance Evolution is also available from LexisNexis in
a fully hosted environment.
