First Advantage Opens Litigation Consulting Services Office in Munich

At LegalTech(R) New York 2009, the Litigation Consulting Services unit of First Advantage Corporation (Nasdaq: FADV) announced the opening of a new full-service facility in Munich, Germany, offering electronic discovery consulting, computer forensics, collection, multilingual data processing and Web hosted document review. This addition expands the unit's European presence, which already includes offices in London and Brussels. A well-established business community, Munich is a hub for both German and international financial services, manufacturing and technology companies.

"In an interdependent global economy, corporations and their counsel are inevitably subject to foreign laws and data privacy regulations. With anti-corruption and anti-competition enforcement reaching record levels, it is essential that these companies have the support to comply with jurisdictional requirements and ensure their information is well-managed and secure," says Ray Muldaur, executive vice president of First Advantage Eurasia Litigation Consulting. "First Advantage has handled hundreds of complex multinational and multilingual projects and brings deep expertise collecting and processing data in Europe. We understand the legislative complexities of each European Union jurisdiction. Establishing operations in Germany is a natural extension of our commitment to support our clients everywhere they do business."

Staffed with on-site project managers and technical support professionals, the tier-one facility is certified ISO 9001:2000, and provides the highest standard of support, monitoring and redundancy. First Advantage's Munich operations will be led by Senior Director Adam Pollitt, who brings years of experience establishing and managing custom data centers and review teams for clients throughout Europe.

With the addition of the Munich office, First Advantage now provides electronic data discovery services from 12 locations worldwide.
