The new combined company will operate more than 70 offices, review centers, and data centers around the world in 11 countries. Its global operations will continue to serve investigation, litigation, and compliance matters of all sizes and complexities, anywhere in the world.

“DiscoverReady has a well-earned reputation of delivering consistently exceptional service experiences through the innovative application of advanced technologies,” said Andy Macdonald, chief executive officer of Consilio. “This acquisition aligns well with our strategy to invest in differentiated solutions that result in a superior and consistent client experience.”

Consilio supports multinational law firms and corporations using innovative software, cost-effective managed services, and deep legal and regulatory industry expertise.

The company has experience in litigation, HSR second requests, internal and regulatory investigations, eDiscovery, document review, information governance, compliance risk assessments, cybersecurity, law department management, contracts management, legal analytics, paper discovery, and digital printing, as well as legal recruiting and placement. ISO 27001:2013 certified, the company operates offices, document review and data centers across Europe, Asia, and North America.

“Consilio is one of the most important brands in the industry, and we’re excited to join such an undisputed market leader,” said James Schellhase, chief executive officer of DiscoverReady.
