Litigation Consulting ("DOAR") and Inference Data today announced that the companies have reached a definitive agreement under which DOAR will acquire Inference Data, a leader in analytics and electronic discovery software.
Inference Data, based in New York, NY, is a strategic addition to DOAR's already extensive discovery management practice. Inference Data provides next-generation software for analytics-driven assessment, meet-and-confer preparation, and accelerated legal review. The company's key product, Inference, applies conceptual search and analysis to prioritize document collections and to identify key documents for faster and more cost-effective document review. It has been used by DOAR and other clients in some of the largest, most complex civil and criminal litigation matters.
The acquisition will extend DOAR's portfolio of analytics and electronic discovery offerings for its corporate and law firm clients. DOAR will continue to build upon Inference Data's electronic discovery platform by enhancing its analytics-driven assessment and review technology, which is specifically designed to streamline document review and reduce the costs associated with the management, review and production of electronic discovery. The addition of Inference to DOAR's discovery management and expert witness practice reinforces DOAR's emphasis on reducing the time and cost associated with the manual review of documents through the use of legally acceptable, defensible methodologies and advanced technologies.
