Huron Consulting Group Opens UK Document Review Center

Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced the opening of a new document review center in London. The U.K. facility enhances the global scope of Huron Legal and supports our clients’ needs for a service provider with expertise in handling data that is subject to EU Data Privacy regulations.

“Our new U.K. document review center allows Huron to provide greater e-discovery offerings for clients in the European Union as well as U.S.-based companies with an international presence,” said Shahzad Bashir, vice president, Huron Legal. “With the additional facility, and the capabilities of our U.K. office, we will be able to provide a broader range of e-discovery services and better accommodate the increasingly global legal marketplace. Our European offerings mirror our U.S. capabilities and extend to work in the Middle East.”

The London center will deliver seamless service to global companies. It is equipped to handle large-scale document reviews and will support clients with EU discovery compliance and data protection concerns. The additional London workstations bring Huron Legal’s total capacity to more than 1,150 seats.

“With our state-of-the-art facilities, we can blend technology and an integrated, secure process to ensure a work product that outperforms more traditional methods,” said Nigel Murray, managing director, Huron Legal. “Our streamlined solution, powered by our people and processes, will save our clients significant time and money consistent with our proven U.S. operations.”

The opening of the London document review center is another move to strengthen Huron Legal’s international e-discovery and cost savings services. The Company recently acquired TRILANTIC, an e-discovery business providing technology solutions to clients in Europe and the Middle East, and also has experts focused on serving European law firms and in-house law departments with legal cost management in the complex international environment. These additions have allowed Huron Legal to continue to expand its legal consulting services globally.

The Company currently operates eight document review centers throughout the U.S. and U.K. The Huron Legal solution maximizes value and efficiency, while providing predictable, up-front capped costs with measurable quality. Huron Legal has the resources necessary to undertake large-scale document reviews and perform a full range of services that include collection and processing.
