Crowell & Moring Launches CMD: Integrated E-Discovery Solution

Washington – March 24, 2021: Crowell & Moring’s E-Discovery and Information Management group has launched an integrated E-Discovery service called C&M Discovery (CMD) that combines supported technology capabilities with the group’s existing practice offerings of legal advocacy, consulting, review, and professional services. The firm has partnered with a leading technology provider with data centers in multiple jurisdictions to enable work on matters of practically any size, location, and complexity.

The new offering enables seamless access to cutting-edge technology and AI-driven workflows to accelerate and improve data analysis within investigative and litigation teams. CMD houses under one roof complete E-Discovery legal, professional and technology services, providing superior value, expedited time to review, and increased automation, standardization and error reduction over external models.

CMD is overseen by John E. Davis, co-chair of the firm’s E-Discovery and Information Management Group based in the New York office, and Edward Lin, Director of Practice Technology. Davis has over 20 years of experience advising clients on information law issues – including discovery, data analytics, privacy, cross-border transfers, cybersecurity, information governance and emergent technology – and representing companies in complex investigations and litigations. Lin has nearly 25 years of E-Discovery and data governance experience from high stakes litigation, government investigations, and internal investigations. He has led forensic engagements and advised general counsel and litigators on strategic and legal preservation efforts, data acquisition, culling, strategic extraction, processing, review, technology assisted review and production. 

“This is a game changer in terms of providing value and service. CMD’s coordinated delivery of legal, professional and technology services permits a closer integration of E-Discovery into the investigation and litigation process, with all the accompanying benefits in quality, agility and consistency,” Davis said. “CMD offers clients a superior choice not only to manage the cost and risk attendant to the torrents of data that are now routine in matters, but also to maximize the opportunities that properly directed technology presents for shaping case strategy and achieving objectives.”
