More Ediscovery Consolidation – Xact Data buys F1 Discovery
Xact Data Discovery (XDD), a provider of eDiscovery, data management and managed review services for law firms and corporations, announced today the company has acquired F1 Discovery, LLC. Based in San Francisco, F1 is a specialized provider of eDiscovery services to law firms and corporate clients. The transaction was closed April 25, 2016.
The purchase of F1 is the latest move by XDD to continue its aggressive growth strategy. In January the company acquired Utah-based Orange Legal Technologies, a premier provider of discovery services for litigation, audit and investigation support with specialized offerings to select industries including pharmaceutical/medical devices; financial services; oil/gas/energy; and intellectual property, antitrust and litigation. XDD also continues its organic growth with ongoing investments in infrastructure, including expansion of its domestic review capabilities and managed review services, along with investments in human capital, including the recent launch of a new training and development program.
“F1 has an excellent reputation for delivering high-quality services to clients in the Northern California market, leveraging leading technology with a highly experienced support team. F1’s culture is centered around providing exceptional service and expert project management, making it a natural fit with our organization,” says XDD CEO Robert Polus. He adds, “The acquisition of F1 further cements our commitment to long-term growth on the West Coast.”
