With 17 offices doing work in over 170 countries, Seyfarth Shaw, LLP, provides advisory, litigation, and transactional legal services to countries around the world. As National Manager of Seyfarth’s Litigation Information Management Office, Mark Keeton has the daunting task of managing litigation support for the twelve U.S. offices of this large, multi-faceted practice.
For the past seven years, Seyfarth has partnered with Epiq Managed Services to better manage document review and discovery processes. “Epiq provides hardware, support for the hardware, behind the scenes support, and overflow support,” explains Mark Keeton, National Manager of Seyfarth’s Litigation Information Management Office. “Before we partnered with Epiq, we did purchase our own in-house hardware,“ he adds. However, that required significant resources to manage and maintain the infrastructure. “The relationship with Epiq,” Keeton continues, “lets us focus on the case teams and the clients themselves and not go so far in the weeds with hardware and software updates, installations, and things like that.” .
