BIA, a leading national eDiscovery and digital forensics provider, announced today a partnership with national litigation strategy firm Blueprint Trial Consulting that allows BIA to expand its already robust litigation support services to include jury research services, such as mock trials and in-person and online focus groups; trial graphics, which include animations and presentation design; and trial presentation “hot seat” assistance.

“We’re excited to partner with Blueprint Trial Consulting to offer our clients a wide range of services that complement the end-to-end eDiscovery and forensics solutions we already provide,” said Brian Schrader, president and CEO of BIA. “Shari Belitz, Blueprint’s chief marketing officer, and I connected at our recent law school reunion, and we knew right away this would be a great partnership. Blueprint uniquely combines legal services, psychology and creative content to offer one-of-a-kind litigation strategy assistance.”

As a result of the partnership, BIA clients will most notably receive jury research services, which apply social science methodologies – including qualitative and quantitative research, advanced statistics and decision science – to reveal the perceptions, attitudes and motivations that drive jurors’ decision making. The results can guide and inform strategies for, discovery, settlement negotiations and trial.

BIA’s new offerings include the ability to conduct jury research exercises, such as mock trial simulations and focus groups, each of which can allow a legal team to test the effectiveness of a trial strategy and evaluate its entire case. Additional services include graphics consulting and creation, witness preparation, jury selection assistance and trial presentation services.

“In the same way that BIA has always been focused on eDiscovery and digital forensics, Blueprint has always focused on the strategy behind litigation. We both know how to mine data, to find what’s relevant and to help our clients use that data to achieve desired results,” said Schrader. “Our clients will appreciate having all of our combined resources in a one-stop shop.”

As part of the partnership, BIA’s expansive list of eDiscovery and digital forensics services are also available to Blueprint Trial Consulting clients.

“We couldn’t be more ecstatic for this new relationship with BIA,” said Shari Belitz, chief marketing officer of Blueprint Trial Consulting. “BIA is known for its top-notch expertise, proven workflows, cutting-edge technology and managed review services. All of our clients, whether law firms or corporations, will be able to take advantage of these new and expanded services to ensure their legal matters are handled defensibly, correctly and securely from beginning to end.”
