"Lighthouse is honored to be recognized by kCura as a Relativity Best in Service partner," said Brian McManus, chief executive officer of Lighthouse. "In addition to meeting the Best in Service criteria, more than 10 percent of our staff hold individual-level Relativity certifications, which demonstrates a high level of technical expertise and our ongoing commitment to delivering a high level of service to our clients. This commitment and expertise, along with our innovations on top of third-party technologies, like Relativity, are what sets Lighthouse apart in this industry, enabling us to deliver a seamless eDiscovery experience, ease of use, and substantial cost savings to clients."

Through a voluntary audit, Relativity Best in Service partners demonstrate their expertise and experience hosting projects in Relativity. kCura evaluates these partners in three areas: technical infrastructure, customer service, and product expertise.
