DTI Continues to Expand Document Review and Legal Staffing Capabilities Through Providus Acquisition

ATLANTA, GA and HOUSTON, TX, Sep 18, 2012 -- DTI, the nation's largest independent provider of discovery services, facilities management, and knowledge process outsourcing, today announced the acquisition of Texas-based Providus, a leading provider of legal staffing, recruiting, and document review services. The acquisition underscores DTI's ongoing focus to deliver comprehensive and defensible e-discovery and review services as well as innovative legal staffing solutions. 

Providus provides attorneys, paralegals and other legal professionals on a contract and direct-hire basis to law firms and corporate legal departments. The Providus suite of services is strongly aligned with DTI's e-discovery and review service strategy. Providus has an impeccable market reputation for staffing substantive attorney, paralegal and legal support projects as well as staffing large-scale document review projects on-site and within its own document review centers across the United States. Providus has also become a leader in providing highly specialized attorneys and paralegals -- including engagements where foreign language fluency is a requirement. 

As part of the acquisition, DTI will add Providus' highly secure, state-of-the-art document review centers and fully-staffed offices to the DTI platform. Each Providus office in major markets, including Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and New York City will become part of the DTI family.

"Combining Providus' legal staffing and document review expertise and DTI's e-discovery services will create a unique and superior managed document review business supporting both law firms and corporations nationwide," said John Davenport, Jr., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of DTI. "We were struck by the similarity of our cultures and client-oriented view. Like us, Providus has forged strong relationships with its clients and we intend to build upon that momentum. As a unified team, we will be able to deliver a wider and more impactful scope of support to our clients."
