DiscoverReady, a Leader in eDiscovery Management Services, Adding Jobs and Expanding in Charlotte

NEW YORK – November 22, 2010 – DiscoverReady, a leading provider of legal discovery management services for Fortune 500 legal departments and law firms, has begun adding staff and enlarging its space as part of a significant expansion of its presence in Charlotte, N.C.

Because of its growing business, company officials said, DiscoverReady has moved to larger processing and document review facilities in 20,000 square feet on the 10th floor of the BB&T Center.  This more than doubled its space occupied by its previous offices on the 7th floor of 129 West Trade Street.

DiscoverReady also has added 11 new full-time positions, doubling the size of its Charlotte Discovery Practice team.  Before year-end, the company plans to add additional staff for its Technical Services and Project Management teams.   The new Charlotte offices are equipped for more than 350 staff members.  Its current staffing is 150 full-time and contract positions.

“Our continued growth and success in Charlotte has been dictated by our exceptional ability to anticipate and adapt to the changing realities of our industry and find new ways to lower costs, reduce risk and improve quality in the discovery process,” said DiscoverReady Vice President and Charlotte Marketplace Director Matt Miller.

The move illustrates DiscoverReady’s commitment to Charlotte and its business community, Miller said. The company is an active participant in the Chamber of Commerce and has contributed to multiple non-profits at the corporate level, including the Charlotte Center City YMCAs, and is also an active corporate volunteer partner with the United Way and Crisis Assistance Ministries.

The company moved to new offices October 15.
