From Berkeley California to London Shoreditch: Everlaw launches in the UK
Fast-growing cloud-based eDiscovery provider Everlaw is to open an office in London to expand its services into the UK and continental Europe.
Everlaw, which was founded in 2010 by CEO AJ Shankar and uses AWS servers, already offers local European hosting for customers, such as London-based law firm Macfarlanes and consulting company Mott Macdonald. With the expansion, Everlaw will add a UK-based hosting option and offer local customer support.
Everlaw’s UK presence will expand security, privacy, and compliance options for customers based in the UK and Europe. Data can now be hosted and retained within the UK in addition to continental Europe. Everlaw is SOC-2 certified for security, availability, confidentiality, and privacy in the US, EU, Canada, and Australia.
“We’re excited to bring our committed team and first-class software experience to serve more customers in the UK and the European Union in 2019,” said Shankar. “Everlaw has always been committed to making legal professionals’ experience as user-friendly and collaborative as possible.”
Everlaw uses predictive coding to speed up review and its Storybuilder enables users to transition from creating timelines and chronologies from documents.
Everlaw’s first UK office will be in London’s Shoreditch neighborhood, home to many major law firms and its “Silicon Roundabout” tech hub. The expansion follows Everlaw’s recent relocation to major new headquarters in Oakland, California.
