Maurice Blackburn partnership to bolster class action matters

By Emma Ryan|12 November 2019

Maurice Blackburn Lawyers has extended its partnership with an Aussie e-discovery firm in the hopes that it will ensure clients receive the most “cost-effective” document discovery services during class action proceedings.

Maurice Blackburn has confirmed its extended partnership with Sky Discovery, noting it will enable clients to get the strongest case evidence run for them in the most cost-effective manner.

Maurice Blackburn litigation technology solutions manager Nathanael Jackson said the partnership allows for a wealth of evidence to be detected quickly and efficiently, helping strengthen the firm’s class action cases while keeping costs to a minimum.

“This partnership ensures we can maintain our market-leading service to clients as Australia’s most successful class action firm, and it means we can do it in a way that helps keep costs to a minimum even when we are going through thousands of documents as we prepare our case evidence,” Mr Jackson said.

“It means we can access the best technology in the best way possible, and ultimately continue to return more money to clients when we succeed in our cases.

“Ultimately, that means we can continue providing greater access to justice for thousands of everyday Australians every year, and we can continue to push for better standards of corporate conduct from big business, which is in everyone’s interest.”

Sky Discovery managing director James Moeskops believes this innovative model for e-discovery services further demonstrates Maurice Blackburn’s commitment to deliver better returns, faster at lower cost on class action matters.

“Sky Discovery’s objective is to enable lawyers to be efficient in the provision of legal services,” Mr Moeskops said.

“The hybrid in-house outsourced model for delivering e-discovery services that we have developed with Maurice Blackburn optimises lawyers’ access to technology and expertise at a lower cost than either the traditional in-house or outsourced models.”
