Award-Winning U.S. and Japanese Companies Partner to Cover the Complete E-Discovery Lifecycle for Multi-language Litigation
DENVER—Oct. 24, 2012—Catalyst Repository Systems, Inc., a pioneer in providing cloud-based document repositories for e-discovery and complex legal matters, today announced a strategic alliance with Tokyo-based AOS Legal Technologies, Inc.
One of the largest forensic collection, security and e-discovery technology providers in Asia, AOS chose Catalyst for the power, speed and scalability of its platform and its expertise in dealing with Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) documents. AOS has a long history of working with Asia-based corporations, and has assisted the Japan National Police with forensic collection and data analysis for the past decade. The company will now team with Catalyst to provide full-service, end-to-end e-discovery technology and consulting expertise for the North American and Asian markets.
“With the addition of Catalyst’s award-winning, multi-language e-discovery technology, AOS will be able to focus on Japanese enterprises to drive U.S., Asia and EU business growth,” said Takamasa Sasaki, President and CEO of AOS.
“We are excited to partner with AOS, a global leader in forensic collections expertise,” said John Tredennick, Catalyst’s founder and CEO. “AOS is an established provider of e-discovery-related services in Asia, with a well-deserved reputation for quality, accuracy and exemplary service. We look forward to helping AOS provide its clients with the best e-discovery technologies available.”
As business takes place on an increasingly global playing field, litigation is also going global, with data now spread across multiple jurisdictions, languages, matters, law firms and parties. Global corporations and law firms need vendors that not only can offer products and services spanning the entire spectrum of e-discovery, but are also well-versed in working with and translating foreign documents, including CJK documents.
The partnership provides AOS clients access to Catalyst’s cloud-based e-discovery technology, hosting and consulting services offered through the company’s Japanese and U.S. operations and data centers. Catalyst’s clients will have access to AOS’ expertise, proprietary technology and experience in data security, data identification and forensic collection in Asia. The combination of the two companies’ uniquely comprehensive range of e-discovery services and their region-specific experience and expertise is unprecedented in the industry. The companies’ combined resources will serve their global client base in the Asian and U.S. marketplaces with exceptional services covering the complete litigation lifecycle.
