Management consultancy FTI Consulting has expanded its partnership with Relativity to now offer the RelativityOne e-discovery platform in Canada.

Organizations in Canada are facing more e-discovery challenges as the country's Competition Bureau aims to beef up antitrust oversight. Notably, the watchdog recently announced a new antitrust cooperation framework with the US and Commonwealth countries. Industry analysts say this will lead to increased volume, cost, and complexity when conducting e-discovery in global merger investigations.

The RelativityOne platform is a leading cloud solution used to reduce the cost and complexity of large e-discovery matters. The platform offers modern aesthetics, an easy-to-use viewer, workflow-based navigation, quick performance, and automated workflows.

FTI has already expanded its Relativity managed e-discovery services across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The consulting firm’s offering includes an enhanced Relativity solution with FTI proprietary tech, as well as add-ons from other software partners.

“Relativity has helped us provide improved e-discovery outcomes and cost savings for clients worldwide,” said David Meadows, a senior managing director in FTI Consulting’s technology segment. “The addition of RelativityOne in Canada strengthens our SaaS portfolio and flexibility in addressing any e-discovery challenges our clients face.”

FTI offers consulting services and technology solutions that span the entire discovery process, from global data collection to review and production. The firm’s consultants help clients develop policies, deploy technology, and execute entire programs as a managed service – with expertise leading discovery efforts in range of matters including multi-jursidictional disputes and internal investigations.

“As a RelativityOne Silver Partner, FTI Technology’s teams have been among our most active partners,” James Zinn, director of commercial partnerships at Relativity, said. “Demand for our RelativityOne solution continues to grow in Canada, and through this partnership, FTI Technology will be positioned to offer clients a solution to their unique challenges.”

Based in Washington, DC, FTI Consulting provides consulting services to help organizations manage change, mitigate risk, and resolve disputes. The company has more than 6,200 employees in 28 countries. It has Canadian offices in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver.

The firm earlier this year promoted Jamie Belcher to senior managing director in the Toronto corporate finance and restructuring practice.
