KPMG Acquires Ledjit Consulting

TORONTO, Nov. 16 - KPMG LLP (Canada) announced today that it has acquired Ledjit Consulting Inc., Canada's premiere e-Discovery and Information Management (EDD/IM) firm specialized in the business of Bridging the Gap between IT and the Law®. With this acquisition, KPMG becomes Canada's first firm offering all of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), expanding on the services in which the firm is already a recognized leader. Ledjit's client base, including a variety of multi-national corporations, will benefit from KPMG's depth and breadth of Advisory knowledge and skills.

"The addition of Ledjit professionals and their e-discovery skills positions KPMG as a leading Advisor to corporations and law firms on how to proactively manage records from creation to destruction, and in the course of litigation and investigation. We are building on our ability to deliver strategies that enable organizations to become more efficient and effective in all sectors," said Bill Thomas, CEO and Senior Partner of KPMG.

Ledjit's former president, Dominic Jaar, is one of the few Canadians to be recognized as a North American thought leader in the information management field. He and his Ledjit colleagues are highly regarded in the legal community across the country and abroad. All members of the Ledjit team have joined KPMG and will work with the firm's existing E-Discovery practice by complementing it with an information management specialty.

  1. Brad,
    Thanks for sharing the news! This acquisition will change the Canadian e-discovery landscape by bringing together the professionals of Ledjit, recognised as leaders in e-discovery consulting and sourcing, and the KPMG experts globally who have the credentials to support their clients with their forensic and IT needs. KPMG is now uniquely positioned to service clients from the preventive stage of information management up to the presentation of evidence in a court of justice or to regulatory agencies in cases of investigations.
    Thanks again for sharing!
