DiscoverReady Expands South-Central U.S. Operations
Success of Energy Focus Leads to Greater Activity from Houston Platform
NEW YORK (May 3, 2013) — DiscoverReady LLC, a leading provider of legal discovery management services for Fortune 500 legal departments, today announced the expansion of its Houston-based operations to meet greater demands from clients in the south-central United States.
By the end of the year, the company expects to employ as many as 75 at its offices at 810 Highway 6 South, in Houston’s Energy Corridor district. The office is managed by Amy Hinzmann, senior vice president for discovery practice and leader of the office’s discovery practice attorneys, and Joni Miller, vice president for business development, in charge of client relationship management for the south-central U.S.
From its small start as a sales and client relationship presence in 2006, the Houston office is growing into a broader service offering. Most of the expected new employees will be attorneys working on document review projects. Currently there are five DiscoverReady employees in the Houston area.
“The Houston expansion will continue the DiscoverReady tradition of providing cutting edge solutions and services for the complex legal discovery needs of sophisticated corporate clients and their counsel in the areas of document review, managed discovery services and litigation consulting,” Hinzmann said.
“We are very excited about our continued investment in Houston,” Miller said. “With our already established e-discovery and review business in the energy vertical, the Houston review center will further strengthen our commitment to satisfy the growing demands for industry-leading fixed-fee managed document review in the Texas and south-central US marketplace.”
The Houston expansion brings to five the number of U.S. locations where DiscoverReady provides review services as well as client support. The others are in New York City, Charlotte, San Francisco, and Detroit.
