Sky Discovery Press Release – James Moeskops Appointed Managing Director 2019-07-03T19:23:45Z sky-discovery-press-release-james-moeskops-appointed-managing-director  SYDNEY, July 4, 2019. Leading independent Australian eDiscovery firm Sky Discovery today announced that it has appointed James Moeskops as its Managing Director, with the founders to continue as Senior Executives and Board Directors. Moeskops pioneered a consulting led approach to eDiscovery in the UK leading Millnet to become the largest eDiscovery firm headquartered outside the US. In 2016 Moeskops led negotiations to combine Millnet with Advanced Discovery Inc to create a global eDiscovery firm which in turn was acquired by Consilio a global leader in eDiscovery in 2018.  Moeskops brings invaluable insight into the rapidly evolving global market for eDiscovery technology and services at a time when the Australian market is experiencing unprecedented demand for eDiscovery expertise following the Banking Royal Commission, ensuing class actions, litigation, and shift towards increasingly stringent regulation.  “The Sky Discovery team have what it takes to be the leading eDiscovery firm in Australia and beyond.  The company is founded on the principles of providing leading expertise, outstanding 24/7 service, technological and process innovation and a commitment to forming close strategic partnerships with clients - factors that were fundamental to the success of Millnet in the UK” said Moeskops.  “The Australian eDiscovery market shares many similarities with those of the UK and US albeit with a few fundamental differences.  In particular the pool of experienced eDiscovery professionals is small and restrictive. The immigration policies limit the potential to hire internationally leading to a war for local talent and creating a barrier to entry for international eDiscovery firms seeking to enter the Australian market, or firms seeking to build or grow in-house eDiscovery capabilities.  Sky Discovery is ideally placed to meet this demand by offering a long-term strategic partnership to firms requiring outsourced or a hybrid in-house outsourced managed eDiscovery service model.”  “James brings a wealth of experience and is entirely aligned with Sky Discovery’s culture and ambitions to be the leading independent eDiscovery firm in Australia” said Jeff Jarrett Co-founder and Director of Projects at Sky Discovery.    About Sky Discovery  Sky Discovery is a leading independent Australian eDiscovery firm.  The company focusses on building strategic relationships with lawyers who require outstanding eDiscovery services to achieve successful outcomes on disputes, investigations and regulatory matters.  Sky Discovery are renowned in the Australian market for having one of the largest teams of eDiscovery experts, a 24/7 service model and technological and service innovations that underpin speed and quality whilst providing demonstrable cost savings.           To contact Sky Discovery about any of the details in this press release, or to talk to them about their eDiscovery service offerings, please contact them at sales@skydiscovery.com.au  Sky Discovery, in Partnership with Hillogic, Launch an Industry first PDF Agent for Relativity's Leading Review Platform 2019-05-03T12:41:46Z sky-discovery-in-partnership-with-hillogic-launch-an-industry-first-pdf-agent-for-relativity-s-leading-review-platform Sky Discovery, in partnership with Hillogic, an Australian based I.T software development company, have launched an industry first PDF agent for Relativity that allows PDFing documents for discovery on the fly. Australian federal and state practice notes default to exchanging in a PDF format.  This unique solution will automatically convert documents to PDF as they are tagged as discoverable and stamps them in accordance with the practice notes. Jeff Jarrett, Director of Projects explains that this will be a game changer in the eDiscovery market and states “As native file review has become the standard workflow for eDiscovery matters, one of the major pain points our clients face is a very tight turnaround on tasks such as producing discovery or hyperlinking affidavits, as PDFing has to occur historically at the pointy tail end.  Within the PDF Agent solution, Relativity converts and stamps any document marked relevant by the legal team within seconds.  This removes the time and cost associated with urgent PDFing entirely, eliminating the prior pain point entirely.” Anderson Hind, Director of Technology, provides a summary of the benefits that the solution will provide to firms “The PDF Agent is something we are really excited about as it eliminates another of those manual, time expensive, labour intensive and risk prone tasks that are performed daily in eDiscovery.  Combined with our suite tools:  Skyport: for the import and export of Federal court compliant loadfiles to/from Relativity and Hyperlinq: for the automated hyperlinking of pleadings/courtbooks/expert reports, we are putting together a comprehensive suite of tools to cut down the overhead of administrating a Relativity matter in Australia. Key features include: Automatically convert documents to PDF as they become discoverable based on a customisable rules. For example, when a document is tagged as discoverable in Relativity it will automatically be converted to PDF. Ability to define a set of documents to PDF.

Setup templates to paginate documents in compliance with your discovery obligations. Have access to the discoverable PDF version and the native version at the same time.
