About Cognicion

Cognicion is a boutique information management and legal services provider based in Richmond, Virginia—the state’s legal, medical, and government center. Formed in 2015 after 15 years as an in-house provider, our focus was on the need for specialized workflows and professional skillsets to manage large-scale discovery projects. Cognicion has continued to evolve with the legal landscape, embracing the most relevant technologies to adapt to our clients’ current needs.

Our Diverse Expertise is Our Strength

Cognicion has grown into a diverse group of individuals spread out across the country, all with unique backgrounds, educations, and abilities. Our leadership group is guided by principles learned working in international consulting, while our data scientists learned their trade immersed in computer technology and data management.

Every member of our litigation support team hold J.D.s and have decades experience working in eDiscovery.

They have overseen projects ranging from regulatory investigations to environmental lawsuits to pharmaceutical litigation and so on, all the while working to develop new processes to best manage the collection and review of material for production.

From these relatively specialized backgrounds winds a common thread that bonds us: our desire to provide the best possible resolution for our clients.

Our Team Cohesion is Our Competitive Advantage

Our team works in close collaboration: we know each other, we trust each other, and we rely on each other. Our cohesion allows us to move efficiently and have flexibility to customize solutions for our clients—our astronomical retention rate among client corporations and law firms speaks for itself! Technology offers us limitless potential that makes us competitive—but the bond that unifies us and differentiates us in a crowded market—are the individuals who comprise Cognicion.

Our Commitment:
Your Data Is Safe

We take extensive measures to safeguard our clients’ data against cyber incidents, going beyond traditional anti-virus software and firewalls. For On-Prem, the platform infrastructure maintains ISO 27001 certified hosting and Type 2 SOC 2 tested systems in our data center near NYC and at a Disaster Recovery Site near Washington, DC. This geographical separation helps us meet internal requirements for disaster preparedness. Client data is backed up to the minute in secure environments, equivalent to the systems of national security agencies and major financial institutions, so that the environment is fully replicated and redundant.
