Trustpoint.One today announced the acquisition of Kelly Legal Managed Services (KLMS), formerly known as “Kelly Law Registry.” The acquisition of KLMS enhances Trustpoint’s growing footprint and ever-expanding suite of legal staffing and comprehensive legal solutions.
The acquisition of Halebury builds on a period of strong organic growth for Elevate, further expanding its international footprint and bringing its headcount to about 1,000 globally. In Q4 2018, Elevate acquired legal AI technology and consultancy LexPredict and Sumati Group, a leading provider of contract lifecycle management (CLM), augmenting its technology-enabled legal services to help law departments and law firms solve increasingly complex problems.
“GRG is a foundational brand in mass torts, with a long record of expertise and problem-solving,” said Bob Hopen, president Epiq class action and corporate restructuring. “The expertise and market leadership in mass tort that GRG brings to Epiq is unmatched and we’re thrilled to be able to expand this solution and the bench of expertise offered to our clients.”
The acquisition of eBrevia aligns with Donnelley Financial Solutions’ commitment to providing clients with best-in-class secure data aggregation, due diligence, compliance and risk management solutions.
“This move supports our strategy to provide the most comprehensive suite of global legal services to our customers,” says Lokendra Tomar, CEO of Elevate. “By continuing to build out consulting and technology-enabled managed services spanning CLM, M&A, litigation, compliance, legal operations and other areas all under one provider, we are able to help law departments and law firms solve increasingly bigger and more complex problems.”
As a venture-backed start-up and recent winners of the Chicago Innovation Awards, US LegalTech Venture Day and Product of the Year by M&A Advisor, Esquify’s innovations will be embedded into XDD’s existing managed review business to help drive increased client value and technology-driven results.
The acquisition of Evidox deepens QDiscovery’s expertise across its core offerings and expands its presence in New England with additional offices in Boston and Portland, ME.
Increased offshoring via the creation of satellite entities and the proliferation of private equity deals has increasingly led to instances of local citizen shareholders and partners of the offshored entity being ousted and/or squeezed out of deals.
The move combines the comprehensive legal services offering of Elevate with the data science team and AI engine of LexPredict, creating more sophisticated technology-enabled solutions for law departments and law firms.
The acquisition positions Rajah & Tann Singapore among the first in Asia to launch a full-service e-discovery practice at a time when technology is rapidly disrupting large swathes of industries and the way goods and services are delivered to customers.
