CHICAGO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--BDO Consulting, a division of BDO USA, LLP, one of the nation’s leading accounting and consulting firms, today announced an expansion of its forensic technology services practice through the addition of the e-Discovery practice of Key Discovery, a Boston-based litigation support provider. The practice provides electronic data collection and processing, hosted review, production, project management and consulting to leading law firms and corporate legal departments. Key Discovery will continue in its primary business of paper discovery and corporate solutions, while maintaining an ongoing strategic alliance with BDO. This transaction is effective immediately.
“BDO, which will continue to be a strategic ally of Key Discovery, combines an understanding of the local market with the national and global resources to match the needs of leading law firms and multinational corporations.”
“We are extremely pleased to build on our presence in the Boston market by adding these e-discovery resources to our national forensic technology services practice. Key has an impressive client base – including many members of the American Lawyer 200 and U.S. News Best Law Firms in Boston lists – who have growing demands for e-discovery. We will expand this practice and, more importantly, provide these clients with additional capabilities and resources – in areas such as digital forensics, cyber investigations, data analytics and expert testimony,” said Carl Pergola, Partner and Executive Director of BDO Consulting. “Since we have already been collaborating on client work and business development with Key’s e-discovery team, we anticipate a seamless integration of the practice and its clients.”
“Key Discovery has built a strong brand in the Boston marketplace as a premier provider of litigation support services. Our e-discovery practice has been an important component of that success, but for it to reach the next level of growth in this expanding space it requires the national brand name and resources that BDO can provide,” said Tom Washburn, CEO of Key Discovery. “BDO, which will continue to be a strategic ally of Key Discovery, combines an understanding of the local market with the national and global resources to match the needs of leading law firms and multinational corporations.”
This transaction represents BDO’s second this year in the important Boston market. Earlier in 2016, the firm expanded its Boston practice through the addition of 105 staff, including 15 partners, from Feeley & Driscoll, P.C. BDO now has close to 300 staff in the market.
Key’s e-Discovery professionals will relocate to BDO’s Boston offices at:
Two International Place
