Rajah & Tann Technologies Announces New RelativityOne Offering, Improving e-Discovery Capabilities

Rajah & Tann Technologies, today announced it is expanding the firm’s global e-Discovery offering with the addition of Relativity’s cloud-based e-Discovery  solution, RelativityOne. With RelativityOne, Rajah & Tann Technologies can better protect its data by storing it in a single, secure SaaS platform that spans the full breadth of e-Discovery – from legal hold all the way through to production.

The investigations and litigation discovery process in Singapore has traditionally been an arduous and manual process. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Rajah & Tann Singapore, Rajah & Tann Technologies stands at the precipice of legal technology and is strategically positioned to lead the changing digital forensics and discovery scene in Singapore, given that they now play a pivotal role in disputes, investigations, and information governance.

Coupled with Rajah & Tann Technologies’ expertise and experience, the use of RelativityOne will enable lawyers, investigators, in-house counsel and corporate professionals to amongst other things, review and analyse numerous documents at unprecedented speed and scale.

With the secure and powerful RelativityOne product, Rajah & Tann Technologies will be able to further leverage its e-Discovery expertise to provide more value and better results for its clients. Additionally, moving to the cloud gives Rajah & Tann Technologies the added scalability needed in today’s data-centric society and allows them to build expertise and IP on top of one connected, global solution. RelativityOne also gives Rajah & Tann Technologies 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.

“Rajah & Tann Technologies is excited to announce our latest multidisciplinary service offering with Relativity, becoming the leading Singapore legal technology company to utilise RelativityOne,” said Michael Lew, CEO at Rajah & Tann Technologies. “We look forward to continuing to increase the level of legal technology awareness in the Singapore private sector whilst empowering allied legal professionals to challenge the status quo, with the addition of RelativityOne. This partnership combined with our multidisciplinary team  of consultants, technologists, methodologies, and know-how, will complement, amplify, and collectively revolutionise the way e-Discovery, investigations and information governance are conducted.”

“We look forward to partnering with Rajah & Tann Technologies as they welcome the growth opportunities of RelativityOne,” said James Zinn, Director of Commercial Partnerships at Relativity. “We're excited to see how they leverage the extensibility of the platform to further build out their suite of innovative e-Discovery services.”
