Aussie law firm launches ediscovery startup

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has launched an independent ediscovery services company based on a cloud platform developed by its Legal Technology Solutions Group on Amazon Web Services.

Telesto will operate independently from Corrs, utilising legal and technical expertise developed at the top-tier law firm. It uses EDT Software for data ingestion and review, and FTI’s Ringtail discovery and document management platform.

Telesto offers e-discovery consulting, forensic preservation and acquisition, processing data for use in e-discovery, early case assessment, advanced analytics, technology-assisted review (predictive coding), paralegal review and document production. 

“The legal market in Australia and globally has been calling for an e-discovery solution that not only takes advantage of the rapid developments in cloud computing, but passes on the speed and cost benefits of cloud computing and ever advancing technology to clients,” according to Telesto Founder, Consultant and Corrs Partner, Michael do Rozario.  

"Structurally, it is clear that e-discovery should continually get cheaper but that is not often the experience in the market.  Much of this comes down to the dominance of the one-size-fits-all model offered by e-discovery providers and technology platforms. 

“Telesto’s cloud-based solutions bring down the costs of e-discovery and forensic technology in matters, internal document reviews and investigations. Telesto can handle litigation and inquiry matters of any size and gives clients access to experts who are at the cutting edge of the global e-discovery market and world class technology.”

Telesto Director Brian Borskjaer said: “From collection to review, court production and storage, we can provide clients cost effective solutions. Our services are flexible, customised to the needs of the matter and the client and, because our solutions are cloud-native, they are extremely fast, secure and highly cost effective.

“Most importantly, we are uniquely positioned to provide clients with a top-tier forensic and e-discovery end-to-end solution that is often lacking in the e-discovery market. Phil Magness is one of Australia’s leading forensic technologists and is able to assist clients to acquire electronic data from computer systems, surveillance systems and all types of portable and mobile devices. He is backed up by a team of experienced legal technologists with decades of experience in the e-discovery market.”
