New Orleans-Based Boutique Litigation Firm Jones Swanson Chooses Iris Arc(SM) for Its Legal eDiscovery Managed Services Environment

KANSAS CITY, Kan., Sept. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Iris Data Services, an Epiq Systems company (NASDAQ:EPIQ) and the leader in eDiscovery managed services, today announced that Jones, Swanson, Huddell & Garrison, LLC has signed a multi-year managed services contract. The deal includes Iris ArcSM managed services, giving the New Orleans-based boutique litigation firm an in-house Relativity®environment without the capital expenditure.

Jones Swanson retains a sharp focus on the representation of smaller businesses and individuals, while also representing many of Louisiana’s and the Southeast’s largest business entrepreneurs and landholders. Managing Member Lynn Swanson was named one of New Orleans CityBusiness Magazine‘s “Leaders in Law” and a “Top Lawyer in Commercial Litigation” in New Orleans Magazine.

“Arc has given us scalability, easier collaboration and the ability to access our data from anywhere. We no longer have to rely on outside vendors,” said Managing Member Lynn Swanson. “There is a level of integrity and support that we haven’t experienced before. The fact that the team at Iris is always available to answer our questions has really given us peace of mind.”

“Who Iris is as a company is what sold us — they make us feel important,” said Member Katie Lasky, who was named a “Rising Star” in Business Litigation by Super Lawyers Magazine. “The Iris team prepared a whole training session around my questions and the basics of being an administrator. I don’t think we’ve had that kind of training — ever, from anyone.”

“Jones Swanson is a firm that wants the best of both worlds: saving their clients money while also using the best review tool on every case, no matter the size,” said Major Baisden, managing director of managed services and Asia-Pacific at Epiq Systems. “We specifically designed Iris Arc as a robust solution for both of those requirements, and we are honored to be a part of their vision.”
