Blackstone Discovery, a leading provider of litigation support services for law firms and corporations, has formed a strategic alliance with StoneTurn, a firm specializing in forensic accounting, computer forensics and dispute consulting. The alliance allows BlackStone Discovery and StoneTurn to provide clients with strategic consulting services and high end sophisticated forensic collection services throughout the entire investigation.
“The technical acumen and state-of-the-art laboratories that StoneTurn offers are the perfect complement to BlackStone’s group of discovery professionals.” said John P. Kelly, CEO & President of BlackStone Discovery. “The StoneTurn Group is consistently innovative, reliable, conscientious and knowledgeable, and most importantly timely with their ’top-shelf’ solutions. Every engagement we have partnered with StoneTurn on has proven to be a big success for our clients.”
“Having had the opportunity to observe Blackstone in the marketplace we were impressed with their expertise, professionalism and intuition.” stated Matt Schroeder, who manages the San Francisco Forensic Technology practice at StoneTurn,“Blackstone excels at arriving at effective solutions when dealing with wide ranges of data processing and database hosting. Our two organizations have developed protocols for working seamlessly together, providing excellent service and smart solutions for our clients, which has been a big differentiator.”
The certified professionals at StoneTurn and BlackStone have collaborated on numerous projects involving the collection, recovery, and analysis of forensic material. Recently, StoneTurn and BlackStone partnered on a large late night on-site data collection comprised of 20+ custodians. Although the collection had many unique attributes, the collaborative approach StoneTurn and BlackStone developed solved the various database and multi-platform issues presented at the client environment. Through the use of BlackStone’s Rapid Response Methodology, the consultants established the scope, breadth, and depth of the client’s needs, framed the underlying issues, and identified key custodians and the associated data. The consultants formulated the smartest strategic approach to enhance productivity and reduce costs, maximizing results and minimizing surprises.
