View all press releases

AUSTIN — March 10, 2020 — Legal technology leader DISCO today announced its selection as a firmwide ediscovery partner by Touchstone, Bernays, Johnston, Beall, Smith & Stollenwerck, LLP (Touchstone Bernays), one of the leading defense litigation firms in Texas.

Touchstone Bernays was seeking a partner to help the firm modernize its discovery process and bring technology-driven innovation to its litigation practice. Upon reviewing multiple ediscovery solutions from different vendors, DISCO was the clear choice for the firm’s more than 20 attorneys. The DISCO platform was intuitive and easy to use, empowering its legal teams to quickly review documents and find critical evidence.

In addition to DISCO’s features and ease of use, a key differentiator for Touchstone Bernays was the company’s transparent pricing. While other ediscovery vendors offered pricing models that were expensive and not designed to accommodate their case sizes, DISCO worked closely with the firm to tailor a subscription plan that would meet their current storage and data needs, and would also be able to scale based on future data requirements.  

“Adopting new technologies can be a daunting task -- yet DISCO made it easy for our attorneys to understand its ediscovery solution and immediately begin to utilize the product to help our clients win,” said Touchstone Bernays Partner Amie P. Fordan. “We have a true innovation partner in DISCO. The company understands how lawyers think and what our needs are, and it has delivered a solution that enables our lawyers to approach discovery and litigation in new digitally driven ways.”

“Whether a law firm is embracing the cloud for the first time or looking to implement the most cutting-edge solutions to modernize its practice, DISCO makes it easy to work smarter and more efficiently while reducing costs,” said DISCO Chief Marketing Officer Neil Etheridge. “With DISCO Ediscovery, the legal teams at Touchstone Bernays are now empowered to quickly and easily realize the benefits of technology built for the discovery challenges of today, while preparing to take on the client-driven discovery demands and the future.”
