Xact Data Discovery Acquires Salt Lake City-based Orange Legal Technologies
Market expansion and proprietary technology are part of XDD’s strategic growth plans
Jan. 19, 2016 — Xact Data Discovery (XDD), a leading international provider of e-discovery, data management and managed review services for law firms, corporations and government agencies, announces its acquisition of Orange Legal Technologies (OrangeLT). OrangeLT is a respected, premier provider of litigation, audit and investigation support services with local, domestic or international requirements.
Like XDD, OrangeLT offers a complete suite of discovery services, from forensic data collection to document review, and has put particular emphasis on building its managed review practice. The company provides specialized services to select industries, including pharmaceutical/medical devices; financial services; oil/gas/energy; and intellectual property, antitrust and litigation, all of which XDD will continue to support.
OrangeLT is based in Salt Lake City with additional offices in San Diego and Newport Beach, Calif. and Chicago, Ill. The acquisition provides immediate growth on the West Coast to augment XDD’s recent expansion into other major cities there, including Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. It also brings to XDD extensive intellectual capital and a well-established reputation for providing high-quality, customized solutions to a unique customer base. In addition, OrangeLT brings proprietary technology that XDD will leverage as the company continues its expansion, including further growth in the specialized markets where OrangeLT has excelled.
“Orange Legal Technologies’ employees, technology and customers are a perfect complement to XDD based on our well-aligned corporate culture and goals, as well as our comparable service lines and commitment to quality service for our clients,” says Xact Data Discovery CEO Robert Polus. He adds, “We are very excited about this acquisition for the immediate expansion both geographically and into vertical markets that offer great opportunity for additional growth.”
The record growth achieved by XDD in recent years, along with the influx of capital it received last year from investment firm Clearview Capital, has allowed the company to make additional investments in its infrastructure and continue its strategy of expansion into key legal markets to better support both existing clients and new prospects.
With its new offices in Salt Lake City, San Diego and Newport Beach, Xact Data Discovery now has 16 locations throughout the United States and two in India.
