Ulmer eDiscovery Attorney Becomes Relativity Certified Administrator

Ulmer is pleased to announce that eDiscovery Attorney J. Matthew Linehan has completed the requirements to become a Relativity Certified Administrator (RCA) on version 9.6 of the Relativity eDiscovery software. The RCA program ensures that case administrators fully understand Relativity’s capabilities, which allows them to maximize the software’s flexibility and provide an intuitive interface for end users.

To become an RCA, candidates must take an exam that tests their knowledge of all aspects of case administration in Relativity, including handling a case from start to finish. The exam includes a 75-minute hands-on project and a 150-question test designed to test a candidate’s skills in the software. The RCA exam is known for being a very difficult test, requiring a combined score of 80 percent or higher to pass.

“We are thrilled Matthew has achieved the skills necessary to become a Relativity Certified Administrator,” said Megan B. Gramke, Partner and Co-Chair of Ulmer’s eDiscovery Practice Group. “The RCA exam is extremely challenging. A successful examinee must master the highly technical aspects of the software, while also ensuring a seamless experience for the attorneys and clients who utilize the program. Matthew’s expertise in Relativity is an asset to our firm and the clients we represent.”

Linehan is a business litigator with a particular focus on providing clients with intelligent and practical solutions to eDiscovery issues. He manages all phases of eDiscovery, including data mapping, applying litigation holds, negotiating parameters, coordinating defensible ESI collections, searches, and productions, metadata analysis, and resolving disputes. He also provides training for eDiscovery best practices and policies for Ulmer attorneys and clients. His understanding of the nuanced and technical aspects of eDiscovery are valuable both as a preventative measure to avoid potentially costly disputes and as a problem-solving measure if and when disputes do arise.

Ulmer is adept at efficiently and effectively handling eDiscovery matters for its clients, and uses Relativity in-house at the firm. Relativity, the premier eDiscovery platform, is part of an overall eDiscovery technology solution at Ulmer that allows the firm to provide world-class results at a lower cost than what clients could expect to pay an outside vendor for similar services.

Relativity’s eDiscovery platform is used by thousands of organizations around the world, including more than 70 Fortune 100 companies, to manage large volumes of data and quickly identify key issues during litigation, internal investigations, and compliance projects. Relativity has more than 180,000 users in more than 40 countries.
