ATLANTA – June 1, 2015 – DTI, a global legal process outsourcing (LPO) company providing eDiscovery, managed services and litigation support, announced today that it has finalized the acquisition of Merrill Corporation’s Legal Solutions business.
The acquisition, announced earlier this year, expands the DTI platform in both scope and geographic reach while adding legal service operations in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. The Merrill Legal Solutions lines of business included in the transaction are eDiscovery, Deposition and Court Reporting and Facilities Management. Merrill employees within the Legal Solutions group and some support services employees will transition to DTI as a part of the acquisition.
“This acquisition expands our global presence, grows our international portfolio and demonstrates our commitment to supporting our multinational clients,” said John Davenport Jr., chief executive officer and founder of DTI. “It also reinforces our commitment to lead the large-scale transformation in the legal industry.”
The acquisition will expand the capabilities of DTI to help the world’s leading law firms and Fortune 500 corporations accelerate the changes needed to remain competitive in today’s legal landscape. The legal industry demands top-tier legal services providers, like DTI, that can deliver discovery and litigation support services on a global basis. The acquisition of Merrill Legal Solutions strengthens the ability of DTI to provide seamless services across the globe.
“As we close this transaction, it is clear that this is a smart strategic move for both companies,” said Rusty Wiley, chief executive officer of Merrill Corporation. “We are confident that our Legal Solutions clients will find a top-notch partner in DTI. At the same time, it will allow us to accelerate investments in our core businesses and serve our clients’ needs.”
Terms of the deal will not be disclosed.
