Consilio, a global provider of eDiscovery, document review, risk management, and legal consulting services, announced it has closed the acquisition of Legility, a global legal services provider. According to Consilio, the acquisition will broaden the enterprise’s legal services and flexible legal talent solutions offerings.
Consilio aims to strengthen its capabilities to deliver a complete legal services experience across a spectrum of client needs worldwide while considerably increasing its European capabilities and solutions.
“Legility has a proven track record of creating excellent predictive and automated enterprise-wide legal driven processes that blend analytics, purpose-built workflows, and information-driven process improvements that help legal teams achieve operational success,” said Andy Macdonald, CEO of Consilio. “This acquisition unlocks greater scale and resources while aligning with our strategy to invest in differentiated solutions that result in a consistently exceptional client experience.”
Legility will enhance Consilio’s resources with a deepened breadth of new talent in managed review, flexible legal talent, enterprise legal solutions, eDiscovery, and investigation & litigation support to corporations and law firms of all sizes. Additionally, Legility gains access to Consilio’s Complete suite of solutions and the scaled experience of the secure global infrastructure spanning the world to serve cross-border matters efficiently.
“Combining with Consilio is greatly beneficial for both our clients and our team. The broader team will be part of a larger community of experts and have increased resources and capabilities at their disposal to address client challenges across information governance, eDiscovery, and legal operations,” said Barry Dark, CEO of Legility. “An important consideration for Legility was the shared view on where the market is going, and we are particularly interested in expanding together what we can provide to clients in non-eDiscovery legal and compliance domains.”
The transaction is now closed and will be followed by an integration period of several quarters as the two businesses align systems and processes.
