11 February 2021 2 min. read

KPMG’s Forensic Technology practice in Asia Pacific has expanded its partnership with Relativity, bolting-on the RelativityOne solution into the existing partnership between the two companies. 

Globally, KPMG is one of Relativity’s leading advisory and implementation partners. Relativity provides software solutions that helps organisations investigate and manage large volumes of data during litigation, internal investigations, and compliance operations. The US-headquartered company’s platform is used by more than 13,000 organisations around the world. 

Consultants such as KPMG leverage Relativity’s platforms to provide a technology layer to their advisory offerings, adding data-driven capabilities to complex litigation and forensic engagements, and regulatory proceedings for clients. In the footsteps of other member firms, including those in the US, UK and Australia, KPMG in Singapore has now added RelativityOne to its offerings.

The cloud-based solution RelativityOne is designed to help users better address the risks and costs involved with e-discovery in the context of litigation, regulatory enquiries and investigations, as well as the acquisition, management, and analysis of large data sets.

Eddie Toh, Head of Forensic Technology Asia Pacific at KPMG, said: “We are pleased to be working with Relativity in harnessing the scalability of RelativityOne to provide insight-driven solutions to increasingly complex and large volumes of data for our clients. Relativity’s market-leading e-discovery solution will truly benefit our clients as they gain full control over their data securely and uncover key facts to respond to litigation requests quickly at lower cost.”

According to Toh, RelativityOne will also enable “reducing reputational risks while increasing operational efficiency.”

In Singapore, consulting firm KPMG has a team of around 70 forensic subject matter. Worldwide, the Big Four firm has over 3,000 forensic colleagues in almost 50 countries. 

Welcoming the partnership in the region, Georgia Foster, Managing Director APAC at Relativity said: “As KPMG has been one of our largest consultancy partners for a decade, it’s exciting to see them expand their offerings across Asia with RelativityOne. 

The move comes at a time of heightened interest in e-discovery services, amid a tsunami of fraud cases expected in 2021 due to the global economic uncertainties driven by the Covid-19 pandemic.
