Operating under the Advanced Discovery™ brand, the combined companies are poised to advance their existing experience in effectively managing the ever-shifting needs of corporate legal departments and law firms. Each company is already an established, premier provider of professional services in electronic discovery; including forensic data collection, early data assessment, electronic data processing, hosted document review and managed contract review/coding services.
David Vandygriff, the current CEO of Advanced Discovery, will share a cooperative Chief Executive Officer role with Michael Driver, the current CEO of CP Document Technologies. Jeremy Lindahl, the current COO of CP Document Technologies, will become an Executive Vice President of Advanced Discovery. Thadd Hale will continue in his role as the COO of Advanced Discovery.
“This merger of two electronic discovery marketplace anchors will leverage seasoned professionals and collective technical strength for the benefit of corporations and law firms nationwide,” David Vandygriff said. “CP Document Technologies has an excellent team and both organizations are eager to realize the greater breadth of opportunities that will be brought through the expansion and growth that this merger provides.”
“Combining forces with Advanced Discovery stood-out as an opportunity that offers both outstanding benefits in service to our clients and additional resources to our dedicated team members. We are all energized and looking forward to leveraging the strength of our newly combined resources,” Michael Driver stated.
Thadd Hale believes that “Technology plays a tremendous role in defensibly handling electronically stored information in litigation. Our commitment to corporations and law firms is that they will both continue to benefit from engaging Advanced Discovery and enjoy the additional leverage in technology and workflow prowess that the newly combined forces brings.”
