CT Demonstrates Continued Commitment to Leadership in the Litigation Solutions Marketplace Through Acquisition of Discovery Cracker


Company Adds Leading Electronic Discovery Software to Its Award-Winning CT Summation Solutions

NEW YORK.- There is no question that electronic discovery is becoming increasingly complex, placing greater demands on litigation professionals. The ever-growing volume of electronic data along with the recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure have made the electronic discovery process more onerous and time-consuming. CT, a Wolters Kluwer business, now offers end-to-end solutions to meet these challenges head on—from discovery through trial. The company today announces it has acquired DocuLex’s Discovery Cracker, the leading electronic discovery processing software, to complement its CT Summation solutions.

Once processed, electronic discovery must still be reviewed, searched, categorized, redacted, produced and presented. More and more, litigation professionals are looking to technology to provide a legally defensible way to help manage the electronic discovery process. In fact, Forrester Research suggests litigators will spend $4.8 billion annually by 2011 to manage electronic discovery. With the addition of Discovery Cracker, CT Summation will offer the first integrated solution suite available.

“CT is committed to providing litigators with the tools they need to successfully manage and win their cases,” said Tom Rump, vice president of Litigation Solutions for Wolters Kluwer Corporate Legal Services. “The powerful combination of Discovery Cracker with CT Summation provides an integrated solution suite that supports litigation professionals in a comprehensive way. We now offer an integrated solution suite to manage transcripts, paper and electronic discovery, and attorney work product.”

The first distributed and scalable electronic discovery solution with a SQL backend, Discovery Cracker processes large volumes of electronic documents and e-mail files. Once processed, Discovery Cracker’s DC Detective allows users to quickly review files, providing early visibility into the electronic discovery process. This gives attorneys immediate access to the electronic data and allows users to view documents natively and then categorize and annotate them.
Processed data can be loaded directly into litigation support systems like the award-winning CT Summation for further review, categorization, redaction and production.

The time is right to team-up and offer litigation professionals a more robust solution that’s there every step of the way—these technologies work together perfectly to do just that.”
