Elevate Acquires E-STET Assets to Expand E-Discovery and Document Review Capabilities
LOS ANGELES – May 23, 2017 – Elevate, a global law company, announced today that it has acquired the assets of E‑STET, a U.S.-based e-discovery company. This move expands Elevate’s e‑discovery, document review and managed services capabilities serving corporate law departments and law firms around the world. The acquisition included E‑STET’s infrastructure, including colocation servers running Relativity software and office space in downtown Los Angeles, as well as several former E‑STET customers.
“Alongside our partnership with cloud e‑discovery technology provider, Everlaw (which will continue after this acquisition), Elevate’s litigation support business has offered Relativity through a partnership with E‑STET over the past five years,” says Kunoor Chopra, Elevate’s Vice President of Legal Services. “This acquisition allows us to provide those services in‑house now.”
Elevate’s litigation support division provides end‑to‑end litigation support including litigation process and legal hold consulting, data preservation, data processing and analytics, technology assisted document review, and managed services to corporations and law firms of all sizes. In addition to scaling up its operation with the technology assets from E‑STET, Elevate acquired several former customers of E‑STET who were seeking the customer‑focused, white‑glove boutique service experience that Elevate offers.
“We strive to provide a ‘wow’ customer experience throughout the lifecycle of a matter,” says Chopra. “That is easy to say but can be surprisingly hard to do, and customers often tell us it is one of the things that differentiates our service from other providers.”
