Matt Miller Joins DiscoverReady to Lead New Charlotte Office and IP Practice Group
June 19, 2009 – New York, NY and Charlotte, NC – DiscoverReady LLC, a leading discovery management services company that outsources fixed-fee document review for Fortune 500 corporate counsel, has hired attorney Matthew “Matt” Miller as Vice President, Discovery Strategy, a newly created position.
Miller will be responsible for oversight of the company’s national Intellectual Property (IP) practice group, and will serve as general manager of the company’s new offices in Charlotte, North Carolina, which are scheduled to open officially in late June 2009.
Miller comes to DiscoverReady from the Charlotte office of prominent law firm, Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, where he specialized in IP litigation.
According to Miller, “Intellectual property is lifeblood for many companies, and protecting that IP in the context of litigation can be very expensive. DiscoverReady holds a unique position in the market, providing repeatable and defensible processes specifically designed for IP litigation discovery, and delivering dramatic cost-savings to its clients.”
DiscoverReady has developed its own proprietary processes and technology to reduce its clients’ cost of IP document review, including PrivBank™, the industry’s first and most comprehensive automated privilege screening application.
DiscoverReady CEO Jim Wagner notes that hiring Miller as leader of its Charlotte operations and of its national IP practice group is integral to the company’s overall growth strategy. “Matt has distinguished himself as a lawyer, discovery professional and a leader. Having professionals of his caliber as part of our senior management team is crucial to our continued growth. We are thrilled to have Matt join us and are confident that he will lead the Charlotte market and our national IP team to great success.”
Matt Miller is a graduate of Davidson College and the Tulane University School of Law. He is on the Board of Managers of the Childress Klein YMCA in Charlotte, and actively participates in the YMCA’s Starfish Academy initiative, which seeks to enhance literacy skills for elementary level students in the Charlotte Mecklenburg school system.
