Kiersted / Systems, a seasoned leader in electronic discovery and legal technology consulting, has announced that it is expanding its practice by establishing a business office in the Washington, DC area that will cover New York City and the Northeast.
According to president George Kiersted, “A significant portion of our electronic discovery practice is in the Northeast. Many of our clients are located there. A local presence will help us serve the region more effectively, particularly as we get the word out on our newly revised K4 rapid review tool, our mobile processing capability, and our Early Case Assessment approach.”
Rick Carter, Regional Manager, will head Kiersted’s new office and will also manage relationships with law firms in New York and Virginia. Carter has 20 years experience in the legal services industry, including ten years in electronic discovery within both the DC and NY markets. He previously served as Regional Senior Sales Consultant with Edmond Scientific Company, Managing Director for the Maryland region of LEX Business Solutions and Vice President of Sales & Training with Uniscribe Corporation (currently Williams Lea). Carter has consulted on many large, multi-jurisdictional matters and has a solid reputation for consultative approaches and cost-saving measures.
Linda Gordon, Kiersted’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, explains, “Rick’s qualifications and experience make him an ideal fit to bring Kiersted’s full suite of consultative and service based e-Discovery solutions to the Northeastern markets. Having Rick on the ground in DC will greatly facilitate face-to-face discussions with clients and quickly mobilize Kiersted’s talented team into action.”
Gordon continues, “Rick’s long term relationships in the DC and NY areas blend nicely with Kiersted’s philosophy of treating every client as if they are our only client. Major law firms, corporations and government entities require superior problem-solving skills and exceptional results, on-time and on-budget. Our unique project management approach, coupled with Rick’s relationship-building skills, creates a win-win for these organizations.”
