Delivered by an Experienced Team at Exceptional Prices

Catalyst Legal Hold was developed from technology first created in 2002 by a group of software developers, IT professionals, attorneys and computer forensics experts. In use for over a decade, the software underlying this platform has collected and processed petabytes of data from tens of thousands of custodians dispersed across more than 45 countries, spanning six continents.  Catalyst Legal Hold is integrated into the Insight Discovery Platform, Catalyst’s award-winning platform for e-discovery search, analytics, review and production.
