  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) August 26, 2011 - BlueStar Case Solutions, Inc. (BlueStar), an electronic discovery consultancy and services provider, officially announced that it has partnered with Zapproved to deliver Legal Hold Pro and expand its end-to-end eDiscovery services. Legal Hold Pro, a Zapproved product, is a leading system for automating and managing the legal hold process.

    "We are very excited to team with Zapproved," says Matthew Minor, General Counsel and VP of Staffing at BlueStar. "Their mission, like ours, is focused on providing guidance and efficient, defensible solutions to law firms and corporations. Legal Hold Pro will allow us to assist Clients at the onset of their litigation while keeping in alignment with the BlueStar approach-that is, customizing cost-effective discovery solutions through bundled services that offer security, quality control and significant cost savings."

    Together with BlueStar's team of attorneys, consultants and eDiscovery technology experts, Legal Hold Pro's low-cost and easy to use on-demand tool will defensibly streamline an organization's legal hold notification and compliance process. Offered either as a SaaS (software as a service) solution or a BlueStar-managed service, Clients will have the ability to expedite their response time when litigation is anticipated, and significantly reduce their risk of spoliation and related sanctions.

    "Our partnership with BlueStar is very promising in that it will help us reach a larger share of the legal community," said Brad Harris, VP of Legal Products for Zapproved. "Proper management and execution of a legal hold is fundamental to a successful litigation action plan, and having the right tools in place with a trusted consultant-like BlueStar-to assist with that process is essential. It is with great enthusiasm that I will be visiting Chicago to work directly with the team on the delivery of our product."

    In celebration of this partnership, BlueStar and Zapproved will jointly present "Data Preservation and Litigation Holds: Best Practices and New Technology," a CLE webinar focused on legal holds, set to webcast live from Chicago on September 13th. This exclusive one-hour event will focus on what has changed since Judge Shira Scheindlin's notable Pension Committee ruling and other recent case law to demonstrate how best practices for legal holds have evolved, and why the consequences for failing to act reasonably are under such scrutiny. The companies will demonstrate some of the unique features and functionalities of Legal Hold Pro and highlight the benefits of having a litigation action plan ready to implement at the inception of litigation.
