Reveal-Brainspace, which provides an artificial intelligence electronic discovery platform, has approached legal technology company DISCO for its latest hiring.
Chicago-based Reveal has hired former DISCO Chief Innovation Officer Cat Casey. This follows the company’s “record breaking” growth, including new customers and recent combinations with NexLP and Brainspace.
Casey joins the company’s executive team as chief growth officer, Reveal said Monday.
The e-discovery company acquired the legal AI software company NexLP last August. In January, the company merged with visual analytics company Brainspace under a contract that included a $ 200 million investment by software private equity firm K1 Investment Management LLC.
Reveal’s clients include law firms, corporations, legal services and government agencies, according to its website. In November, the company partnered with DLA Piper to launch a service designed to mitigate antitrust risks within companies. Reveal also touted relationships with law firms such as Thompson & Knight and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman last year, as well as legal services providers Epiq and UnitedLex.
According to Reveal, Casey’s hiring is in line with an objective of investing in bringing AI into legal practice – a trend that was also evident on Monday when Baker McKenzie announced he was closing his relationship with the AI-powered platform SparkBeyond has deepened.
Casey pointed out that the combinations NexLP and Brainspace “disrupt” the e-discovery market.
“After a strong case of Fear of Missing (FOMO), I knew I had to join this lightning in a bottle,” she said in a statement. “In an industry where there is often a lot of hype without substance, Reveal offers powerful, innovative and intuitive solutions to complex legal challenges.”
Casey spent two years at DISCO, which also offers e-discovery software. The Austin-based company announced in December that it had completed a $ 100 million financing round, bringing the total investment to $ 235 million. The company emerged from the Houston-based process boutique Camara & Sibley. DISCO did not immediately respond to a request for comment on her departure.
Prior to joining DISCO in May 2019, Casey led Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher’s global e-discovery and practice technology team. She previously held leadership positions in computer forensics and e-discovery at PricewaterhouseCoopers and KPMG.
“We are thrilled to have (Casey) on the Reveal team and we know that her background and brilliance will make a significant contribution to the company’s current and ongoing success,” said Reveal managing director Jisa in a statement.
