A leading provider of hosted IT services for banks and law firms throughout Europe and the U.S. within Germany, IKB Data GmbH employs iCONECT solutions for the ingestion and review phases of litigation in both defendant and plaintiff cases. With iCONECT’s strong presence in the UK, this relationship represents a continuing expansion for the company into the German market.
“The e-disclosure and e-discovery market in Europe is growing tremendously as law firms, corporations and government entities realize the time and cost savings that can be achieved through tighter control of the legal-review process,” said Cynthia Williams, Chief Executive Officer for iCONECT. “As one of the IT providers in the region with close ties to the banking and legal sectors, IKB Data GmbH is an ideal partner for us to capitalize on that growth, increase brand awareness, and drive bottom-line revenues.”

“iCONECT’s ease of use, streamlined workflow and accurate reporting enables us to save time and money during the review process for our clients,” said Sandra Kiemes, Product Manager IT Forensics at IKB Data GmbH. “Our clients in Germany require data regulation compliant hosting services, and need the ‘technical’ support to comply with e-Discovery requests; both could be offered with iCONECT. We are delighted to make this service available to our clients.”
