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.
